    It's free with free parking, has short videos and movies all over, several flight simulators you can "ride" and planes and helicopters you can climb into for photo ops

    The POW/MIA section is interesting and still moving - I still remember wearing theses bracelets to shed light on the situation so the prisoners would be sent home

    I can see why it's in the top 25 museums in the US. Free entry, free parking. Tons of aircraft and a great little restaurant inside. There are places where it's quite chilly, but it is grand.

    Awesome way to spend a few hours. Although family friendly, we found our selves child-free for the day, we enjoyed the museum more by being able to take our time. Allow at least 3-4 hours.

    This is one of my favorite museums. They have so many types and kinds of aircraft it is just unbelievable. Allot of hours go into restoring them. The museum itself is free.
