In addition to flying aircraft, the wing also has a wide-ranging collection of World War II artifacts displayed in a Hangar Museum. Due to COVID restrictions, their opening hours are Friday and Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM, and Sunday, 12 PM to 4 PM. They are closed on Monday-Thursday and some holidays. The newly expanded wing at over 55,000 square feet includes three hangar complexes to house their museum, flying aircraft, warbird restorations, and gift shop.
