Small museum with an outdoor collection best viewed on a nice day. The volunteers were very friendly and took a lot of time to explain things. I highly recommend it!

Absolutely wonderful! The staff were nothing but friendly and helpful, and the selection of aircraft is impressive for such an out of the way place. If you attend on open cockpit days, you can see the inside of their aircraft up close and personal. I plan to go back!

We often drive by for our 2yr old to see the planes...per his request! Recently, we went for Open Cockpit Day - the little one had a lot of fun climbing in and exploring the planes.

Have tried 2x to go during posted hours and both times including today we found the doors locals dud another family. Highly suggest you call ahead before you disappoint your kids after 2 hours of looking forward to it. Exceptionally disappointed and will not be trying again it is has 2 negatives there won't be a third.

One of the best museums in central Illinois, the open cockpit days should not be missed.
