Amazing museum with far more than you can see in one visit. You'll see items and displays rarely found. Do not miss a trip out to the tarmac to see the aircraft.

Peopled by volunteers who were actually in the military (or closely associated), you can get some first-hand information about some of the exhibits. Great old pieces of equipment, uniforms, news articles, etc., that would disappears if not preserved in some way. Make sure to ask...More
