Free! Donations welcome. Staffed by mainly retired vets / buffs. Only a couple of planes - C-45 and a Marathon Fire Truck. Mostly AirForce. History paraphernalia, news clipping and pictures in the wall. And easy 40 minute stop while in the area.

I attend this museum with my family. This is a free museum, they just ask you leave a donation. It is a very nice place to visit, especially if you have an interest in airplanes and aviation history. I would highly recommend it.

About half an hour. Depends on how many stop by and fly the simulator.
