I am sure the museum is hopping every spring for the Air Show - but when the air show is not happening - there is not much going on. You can probably check everything out in less than an hour at this location.

Been awhile since we have visited the Flight Museum. Every year they sponsor the airshow that we enjoy watching since we live within 2 miles of the Olympia Airport.
