So I went there today.
Pretty neat for a completely privately funded collection. They’ve got around 40 planes, about 75% military, vehicles, an excellent collection of historical biographies of Texan aviation pioneers (I had no idea!), a great gun turret display and much more. Awesomely, they have a B-58 Hustler and a rare eight gun hard nose PV-2 Harpoon. Even more awesome was the realization that, apparent when one wall of the museum opened and a tug pulled in an SBD Dauntless that reeked of exhaust fumes, most of these babies fly! Their B-17G, their Wildcat, their Hellcat, their Spad (A-1D, not WWI), etc. are operational!
How did I know that most fly? Most had oil drip pans under their engines.
An almost all metal model of the Hornet (the one that was at Midway and was sunk in late '42) is incredible.
On to the question. While I’m aware of the USS Lexington in Corpus (hmmm…, that just might be my birthday weekend present to myself in a few weeks), I’ve seen many a solitary static display (I once slept on the wing of a B-26 in a park in San Angelo when I couldn’t find the band’s motel) and I’ve been to Wright-Patterson (got more than one, “You’re going to Dayton, Ohio for vacation?”) and the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum (I must make it back - no, I’ve not seen the annex), what museums might our av buff Dopers recommend as being worth a cross-country expedition?
