    Great museum. You'll be surprised at the quality of their collection. They're a Smithsonian affiliate.

    Well worth a visit. the US Airways Flight 1549 A320 display is the centerpiece exhibit. Be Sure to watch the Flight 1549 video.

    Very nice, make sure to read the story surrounding the plane from the "Miracle on the Hudson"...a lot of that damage came from recovery.

    Definitely worth visiting and checking out the A320 from flight 1549 that Capt. Silly ditched in the Hudson.

    Great museum with a substantially larger collection than you might expect. Check out the 1549 exhibit and the 727 cockpit.

    The exhibit on the Miracle on the Hudson is itself worth the price of admission. A must see!

    The museum has been collecting and restoring vintage historical aircraft for more than 20 years, and is the largest aviation museum between Washington, D.C., and Robbins, Ga.
