Fascinating feat of engineering and well preserved architecture from the 19th century. Inside the upper A's lower stations ate interesting exhibits. Plus, it is a practical way to go from the river level up to the lookouts at the top of the hill.
Very interesting historic site that describes innovations in humane treatment of prisoners and changing philosophies regarding punishment and penitence. Tour guides, audio tours, and hands on exhibits make this a must see for children as well as adults. It was not scary at all.
Absolutely one of the best air museums in the country. I think we've seen them all and I would put it in the top 5. They have several of the retired Air Force One planes and you can walk through them. As the wife of an aviation buff, I can say I really enjoyed this museum (on both visits to it!) A great place to bring your children.
Best museum I have ever been to
