  • Have been a few times over the years and never disappointing. Only had an hour to kill while waiting for someone to pick me up and was happy to pay the $20. The F111, new since I'd last been, was worth that on its own. A great range in the collection and a treat for any aeroplane enthusiast.
  • The air museum was amazing very friendly staff and volunteers and the artifacts were just mind blowing. Such an awesome experience to see the history of our nation and the impact it had on people back then and the sacrifices they made for future generations.
