Excellent museum with some 18 planes in the museum and some over a 100 years old and also a CH-47D CHINOOK. Worth the visit if you are interested in old and air force planes. There is also other items of interest in the museum. Rod

You will need to go back to the township of Oakley where there are plenty of eating options; maybe book first on the way to the museum. Museum has soft drinks available at very good prices.
