I was not sure what to expect when I pulled up outside the hangar. I was greeted by a friendly volunteer who thanked me for visiting. The museum is filled with a variety of artifacts from aviation history as well as models of aircraft.

There's a lot of very interesting items here but, unfortunately, it appears they haven't the funds or people to properly (i.e. professionally) display, store, and preserve the artifacts. It's well worth a visit..I sincerely hope they're able to preserve these valuable items for generations.

It looks a little run down and it's not huge, but they have a lot of things to see. Lots of old aircraft and antique simulators. The staff was real friendly and it doesn't cost much to get in. I'd come back for sure.
