AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Bo-ring, you may say, unless you’re a history or air buff. But, you know, this isn’t your average air museum. Its huge hangar-size exhibit rooms plunge you into the enormity of the air battles of the Second World War, and what’s even more fantastic, you can crawl inside and sit in many of these legendary aircraft—which makes it fun for kids—and thought-provoking for adults, given that most of the WWII pilots were much younger than you are now. If any of your family members flew in WWII, their aircraft is likely here, from single-engine Grumman TBF Avengers to the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. The aircraft are flown regularly in demo flights. Documentaries on WWII are shown daily, and there is always a stream of special programs and events. You can even take to the air yourself. Dedicated Helicopters Inc. offers 5-minute to one-hour heli tours from the museum.
