  • Went to visit the museum, which was closed due to snow storm. But the display outside was still worth the visit. Great number of famous aircraft in AF history! Well worth the time.

  • This place was fun for the 3 young grandkids. Their attention span would not likely last half the day. The 10 minute movie telling all about Peterson AB. & what is available to see in the three buildings and static plane display outside. The staff gave us models built & painted and we made a donation and I bought a coffee cup. Touring the grounds and reading lots of details with pictures was fun. Very hot afternoon so I'll spend more time there in the fall. Worth a look when you come to Peterson. Very friendly & helpful staff. Nice gift shop and something for Aviator Fans that like planes, space stuff or memorabilia. Cool displays of what was going on after the cold war and how Colorado Springs fits into the military picture of events. Lots of artifacts & history of base ops. & neat material.
  • Me and my family had an amazing time looking at the different historic items, we were all very interested in this subject already, but our guide Mike made this even more exciting and explained everything to us. I would definitely recommend coming here for fun exploring our history! 10/10
