Wonderful, immaculate museum! Nice that it's in a hangar near the airport so you can see and heard planes taking off while you're going through the museum. Lots of classic cars and motorcycles along with the planes. Don't miss the small theater to watch a short film too. Docents are very nice and helpful. Lots of WWII memorabilia--including a vehicle that was owned by Hitler.
