Plan a Visit

While you are at the museum, sit in an F-4 Phantom, H1-Huey Helicopter, Bomb Loader, F-16 Static Display, and more. Check out the history of the military base that started in 1954 as the Bunker Hill Air Force Base. Then head outside to 24 military aircraft which served from WW II thru Today! While you are outside, take a minute to go up into the lone security tower that was on the base during our years as a Strategic Air Command (SAC) facility. You are encouraged to take photos of your experiences. ,

Hall of Honor, plus the West Property and the Pavilion

Inside the exhibit hall or main building, we have a special room called the Hall of Honor. This room contains special plaques that our friends have placed there in memory of their loved ones and friends. This room makes an excellent place to host meetings, conduct classes, and facilitate your group following a tour.

We also have an 8 acre park west of the main building that can be rented for your event. Also on this land we have a pavilion, which seats 80-100 people, plus electrical  power, and a gas/charcoal grill. You may use it for your group as a lunch or snack facility, or a reunion location.
