I would allow 2 days. Answers to this question are highly subjective, as it depends on one's level of interest. I was at the museum 3 full days. First, I'm an Air Force Vietnam Veteran, so I'm an aviation enthusiast. Secondly, I am a photographer with a high degree of interest in what I'm seeing. I tend to read a lot of the descriptive information as well as stop for photos at various angles, etc. I felt 3 days met my needs. I think someone with less interest could tour the museum in one full day and perhaps return for a half-day if their time is limited. There is so much to see and do even if you breeze through certain parts. Many people miss the aircraft on display outdoors as well as the WWII 8th Air Force display, and they skip seeing an IMAX film, which is a mistake. The presidential and experimental aircraft tour is currently off limits during the move of these a/c to the fourth hanger, so that would reduce time allotted to seeing them. You'll have to return once the fourth hanger is open. Enjoy your visit. It's the best "free" museum in the country.
Q:
How much for an adult ticket? Is it open on the weekends?
A:
FREE!!!!!! Open 9 - 5 except New Years day, Thanksgiving and Christmas day.
