Great working museum with an amazing staff of volunteers who run the tours and help in the restoration of war birds from our past. Truly a national treasure.

We took the guided tour and were so glad we did. The guide was so informative and knew so much about WWII. Looking forward to going back for a visit in a few years after they complete an addition so more airplanes can be displayed

It's the volunteers and their vast knowledge and passion that make this a wonderful museum. While there are relatively few aircraft to see, the ones that are on display are in excellent condition and very accessible. Definitely worth visiting.

I haven't seen animals on either of my visits to the museum, so I'm doubtful. Your best bet is to call ahead and ask.
