Nice piece of history. Great staff and gift shop. This is a good stop for schools or tourists along a vacation route. The statue is wonderful.

Right on the freeway but do not stop on the shoulder. $$$ Ticket for that. Go around to the parking lot. It is a little hard to get to there.

Even if it a bit obnoxious. The story about the man is interesting and the little park at the Base makes it worthwhile. Lovely old house is interesting as well.
