A great museum with a focus on the 8th airforce. They have a few aircraft a b47, b17, F4, mig 17, p51 to name a few. If you like aircraft then take a look.

The majority of our exhibits are indoors. The Mighty Eighth is 90,000 square feet, and you can learn all about the Eighth Air Force walking through the museum.
