The static displays were great, misses, bombers about three or four different type cars. Wish the museum building would have been open, but what I saw was very good.

Museum director Rob was very informative and personable, taking time to answer all questions and educate us on the history of Malmstrom. As a former Airman resident of MAFB who spent ample time in this museum during my enlistment, I still learned a lot here....More

Malmstrom AFB is not much to look at. Fairly unattractive buildings. However, the museum is worth a visit.

I always enjoy going to the base air museum. It's fun to look at all of the military equipment that they have.

Interesting place to see if you are in the area. There is a museum and some air craft on the base but you need a pass and sponsor to get on the base.
