This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the time. Nancy (curator) was very nice, and took a lot of time to explain the various planes at their facility. The hangars are small, but the planes are absolutely beautiful. An inexpensive and fun activity for anyone looking for something different.
The WACO museum is small with two hangers holding all the exhibits, the main exhibits feature WACO planes which are great. They offer an included audio tour that lasts approximately 30 minutes over 15 points of interest. They have an annual fly in in September which looks to draw large crowds. There is a free flight simulator as well. Overall... 更多

Originally bought a gift certificate for my father for a ride and he enjoyed the ride so much that my sister, mother and I decided to take a ride also. All of the staff were very nice and we... 更多
Took a ride on a WACO plane during the Troy Strawberry Festival to get photos for the Troy Area Chamber of Commerce and we pleased with the staff and experience all the way around. Lots of aviation history here. Will definitely visit again soon.
