We had a homeschool field trip here and the volunteer veterans were very friendly and accommodating. This is a wonderful piece of history that should be visited!

Very interesting information. I loved learning about Amelia Airhart. W.A.S.P. was cool too! The government would not pay for women pilot's bodies to be shipped home so the did fund raising to bury them and all.

It is small, but surprisingly good. The employees were friendly and helpful. The place is clean and well organized. And there are some very nice pieces of history there. It is free, so definitely go see it!

Seeing the aerial photos of the farmland that was commandeered for the base brought home the sacrifice Americans made for the war effort. The video of the Jeep in the glider right behind the pilots showed the danger the glider pilots faced. The display about the Tuskegee airmen made me think about the honor of those men.

A great history of the Columbus Airport and the history it had with the military!
