* The Emil Buehler Naval Aviation Art Gallery,
* Modern Day Aircraft,
* Bob Hope’s 60 years of entertaining the troops, and
* I sat through two IMAX movies…The Magic of Flight and The Hubble (Telescope).

Well, three days (16.5 hours total) later I am finally done with my visit to this amazing museum. And what’s most amazing of all, IT’S FREE!…No admission charges to the Museum. IMAX films are $7.50. What a great experience!
