If you are into airplanes, this is the place for you. We had a really good time recently wondering about the museum for a couple of hours. It is small, but very interesting. Something for all ages.

There are some fun interactive exhibits here and the planes are neat to view. This is about 1/4 of the size of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, but its still a great museum for a short afternoon.
