National Helicopter Museum.

National Helicopter Museum

The history of the helicopter is explained at the National Helicopter Museum at the Stratford Train Station. There are really knowledgeable docents.

The museum exhibits a cockpit of a Huey helicopter and a bunch of original pictures of various designs of helos -- some really weird. The museum celebrates the local aerospace history, Sikorski being the largest supplier.
