Took a ride in a Waco!! Very interesting views! Museum had exhibits of planes, memorabilia, for all ages. Programs with Legos, building robots, many other educational classes. New building being built to house these learning classes. Interesting speakers on a regular basis.

This museum is worth a visit. I’d recommend the summer as I feel like there is more going on. They offer a plane ride, for a fee, when the weather is nice. They do a lot of events during the year as well. The museum...More

The tour of the museum, with accompanying audio guide, took about an hour. Fantastic airplanes, well presented descriptive panels and wonderful people that run the place.

We were here for a friend's Master's graduation celebration. You can rent this place out for private functions. It is really neat. It is small, but there is a lot of history about the WACO company, and models of the airplanes in the hangar. Our...More

This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the time. Nancy (curator) was very nice, and took a lot of time to explain the various planes at their facility. The hangars are small, but the planes are absolutely beautiful. An inexpensive and...More
