The Control Tower of an historic air base
houses a living memorial to the American airmen and their planes, based here during World War II. There are also displays on the more recent history of the airfield and on the surrounding area.
This is a friendly museum where you’re likely to be offered reminiscences and stories from museum volunteers, some of whom remember the war years themselves. There is space to picnic on the grassy areas near the control tower.
Recommended length of visit: 2 hours
