It has facinating historical displays of a northeast Michigan Air Force base established before World War 2 and decommissioned after the conclusion of the Cold War. It is very creative and offers great historical and personal displays.

The town of Oscoda takes great pride in The Wurtsmith Air Museum and the history of the US Air Force as part of the fabric of the region. It is easily located along Highway F41 just about a mile from US Highway 23. The best time of year to visit the museum is in July when they have many extra activities to celebrate Independence Day. The museum has many aircraft, relics, memorabilia and artifacts on display. There is also the Circle of Flags located near the museum and the Ken Ratliff Beach Park directly acrossed Highway F41 on Van Ethan Lake which has a swimming area, boat ramp and picnic area.

Located on the retired air base, full of history of both flight and military relics. Best time to visit during the military vehicle show held during the summer months.

I am a history buff and flew in to visit the old base. There is barely any noticeable activity at the airport. The folks at the museum absolutely love visitors and enjoy talking and sharing what they remember of the base! One old timer ended up driving me around showing me the base, where base headquarters use to be, where the main gate once stood, and so on. I visited the alert pads where the alerts B-52 bombers once sat at the ready. The museum itself is small but neat and full of interesting things and photos. I look forward to returning with a buddy of mine who was stationed there in the late 80's.

The air museum was very interesting and informative. The guides do an excellent job! It was well worth the entry fee of $5.00!
