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.

This small museum dedicated mostly to the Waco (rhymes with "taco") planes built before WWII is a must see for local airplane enthusiasts. It is small but the guides are knowledge and on the day we were there he was exclusively our own. It was...More
