Planes of Fame Museum
Open since 1957. Has the only "fully authentic" flyable Japanese Zero in the world. The museum's most unique exhibit had been the last surviving prototype of the Flying Wing, but it crashed and was destroyed in April 2019. [RoadsideAmerica.com Team]

Planes of Fame Museum

Fun museum to spend a few hours at. Usually not crowded, and it's packed with cool aviation history. It can get very hot in the hangars during the summer though, so maybe visit during cooler months.
