Docents are extremely enjoyable to speak with as they have a lot of history to share at this museum. There are 2 hangars, the main one housing the historical exhibits and items as well as some of the aircraft, and the 2nd one is a maintenance/refurbishment facility. One fun highlight of the museum is walking on board a C-46 Commando Transport aircraft as you'll see in the second video below!
