This place is WONDERFUL!!! So much to learn and see. The Docents are all full of knowledge, and many of them have direct connections to the displays. Dick was an awesome guide, he made our tour a fun and educational experience. Would definitely recommend checking this place out. Very well put together museum. 👍
A fantastic tour of not only modern (Korea to today) aircraft, but also information missile detection, nuclear warfare, and the use of space in today's military. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
