  • Great place to bring the little ones. They were able to witness and learn about Gliders and the impact they had on US history. It's not an interactive museum- was a little bummer, but understandable. Come check this out if you're in town. If you visit the Buddy Holly Museum first, you receive a 50% off entry fee coupon. Worth it!
  • This is a little known but fabulous museum. Gliders played an important role in WWII and they have done an outstanding job of laying out the timeline and role played. The exhibits are fantastic, and don't miss the short move. Them museum has one of the remaining glider on display. Great for all ages.
