Carolinas Aviation Museum
Come by this aviation museum, located at the Airport, to check out civil and military aircraft. Take a look at the military airplanes featured here, including a Grumman F-14D Super TomCat, which served in Iraq, and a Grumman OVD-1D Mohawk. See the civilian craft like the Piedmont Airlines Douglas DC-3. Restoration work on aircraft takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so schedule a visit to see the whole process. For further information on the exhibits, volunteer opportunities and history of the planes, check the website.
Carolinas Aviation Museum is an off the beaten path treasure. The hangar stores a dozen or more aircraft (mostly military) from different aviation eras. With a guide (like Alena, who was great!) you can actually sit in the cockpits of several planes. There are several kid friendly activities and a small gift shop also. This museum was definitely worthwhile for us!
