This museum is a great overview of air power in World War II. It has static aircraft displays, a large artillery piece out front, a Sherman tank and even an Iraqi MiG 15. It also has a large display of nose art.

The museum is currently under construction as of 7/17/15 and was told it will take 8 weeks to be complete. Not much to see right now.
