Know Before You Go
The museum is located on government property and is maintained by a security staff. The CASC is only open to those 18 and over after receiving a safety briefing and signing a waiver to enter. It's open Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Note: do not expect to walk into the Smithsonian. This is a down-to-earth museum/restoration shop filled with volunteers who workto bring back these old aircraft. The original R & D hangar the museum is located in is as historically significant (and creepy) as the aircraft inhabiting it.
