As you would suspect, smaller museums face challenges in keeping their exhibits in good shape. This museum tries but don’t expect Smithsonian-level! The exhibits there are well done but it is the tour guide that makes the stop here worthwhile. We missed their air show...More

Thank you to the awesome staff for all their help in making great memories today! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Flying in the B17 used in one of my favorite movies was worth every penny.

The tours were good and the planes are great . Our guide had been in the army and shared many interesting ideas and stories along with details about the planes, their missions and how they are still used now in air shows

If you like WWII history, this is the place for you. We received a personal tour from a volunteer who knew his history and airplanes through and through. Only sad thing was B17 not being there due to a flat tire- no ones fault.

Set in the picturesque Genesee valley, the combination museum/airfield site sits on a lovely grass strip, reminiscent of the many similar rural airports scattered throughout America in the 1940's. This scene of a vintage small airfield is highlighted by the aircraft of the era sitting...More

This is not a large museum but certainly worth a visit. Super friendly people here and they love telling you about the planes - they have a wealth of information. There is a $6 admission fee and certainly worth the nominal fee; lots of memorabilia...More

A nice place, but displays could be arranged better and be better organized. I don't see any significant change over the years. They seem very slow in getting things done. Maybe the issue is taking on too many projects at once. I would still consider...More
