Re: Air Mobility Command Museum offers 2012 summer camps
Anyone who has even the slightest interest in aviation or military history or hardware should visit the museum. Pack a lunch or plan on going to a local restaurant because the displays are amazing! One standout is a 28 cylinder rotary aircraft engine display, you must see it to believe it. In addition outside of the hangar there is a huge parking lot full of aircraft. Inside the hangar are fantastic, well maintained displays of aircraft, uniforms and too much to list. A first visit will take a few hours, your return visits will take longer. There is no admission charge but bring a few bucks to drop in the donation box and be sure to visit the well stocked gift shop. If you are bringing grand children, a gift shop visit might require a fat wallet.
