My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I were so very pleased with our choice to use the Military Aviation Museum for the wedding reception. Beginning with our first contact with the events coordinator to the end of the reception, everyone we were in contact with was very kind, attentive and accommodating . The hangar looked beautiful, our guests were so happy and had a fabulous time, and the bride and groomed did not want the evening to end. There was lots of room for guests to move around as the museum was opened to all. I highly recommend any type of event at the Military Aviation Museum.

We are so glad we chose the Military Aviation Museum for our wedding reception! A friend of ours that lives down the street from it suggested that we check it out and as soon as we saw it we fell in love. Everyone there was so nice and helpful and the planes are really cool to have!
