Quite a bit of early aviation memorabilia for airplane and automobile buffs. Also, great events such as wine tastings, concerts, and a visit from Santa! Best hung going in Boone County!

This is definitely a hidden treasure. Something worth visiting and seeing regardless of what kind of transportation interested in. They have engines they have airplanes and even have a parachute and a hot air balloon basket. Quite a bit of history definitely worth stopping.
