A great place to see aviation history from all branches of the US Military. Nice inside facility and the outside museum was nice and open. You could get up close to the planes and read their history and function.

We took our grandson and his family. There are some great interactive displays inside the museum for the kids to sit inside the cockpits of mock ups for pictures and the planes throughout the grounds are well maintained and offer interesting facts.

Nice little museum and as a career USAF retiree and formerly assigned to Grissom, it was nice to see some old air frames and memorabilia, but sad to see the old base fading way to years. The new Joint-Reserve base is quite modern.
