The facility was established in 1986 in historic Hangar 1301, a World War II-era site for the top-secret development of rocket weaponry, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Featuring a fascinating collection of rare vintage aircraft. Climb aboard planes ranging from World War II propeller aircraft to current four-engine jet transports. Try out the flight simulators, enjoy free guided tours and much more. Hours of Operation: Wednesday - Sunday (9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)
The main floor of the display hangar, museum store, and restrooms are handicapped accessible. The C-141B Starlifter aircraft outside has a ramp for wheelchair access.
