The museum has 25 legendary aircraft on outdoor display, spanning from WWII to the Gulf Wars. The indoor exhibits feature: aircraft armaments, uniforms, war prizes, cockpits, trainers, models, art, engines, survival gear, hands-on displays and stories of heroism in the skies. For a great view of the entire aircraft display, visitors are invited to climb the five-story Cold War-era Observation Tower.
