Phil was a fantastic, knowledgeable tour guide and the aircraft are in impeccable, flying shape! This is a great opportunity to see WWII aircraft fully restored as well as some that are going through the restoration process to be flown again.

Our 10 and 16 year old boys loved this museum. It is so fascinating to see items from this era. If you are not into history, you will not like or appreciate it. You can do a self guided tour or have a tour guide....More

It’s the only museum where they have World War II aircraft which have been restored and still flying. Quite amazing, Gene Pfeffer was our guide and if you can get him, he is the best informed and a great guide.

Since my father served during WWII in England with the 8th Army Air Corps Fighter Command, this museum was a MUST for me. Overall, the displays are nicely laid out and the accompanying descriptions were very informative. We had two teenager boys in our group...More

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.
