The museum is open from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm on Father’s Day and a visit is especially a good idea if you have grandparents or family members in town to celebrate – it appeals to every age and you don’t have to be obsessed with planes to enjoy yourself here.

MOVIE- If none of those sound good to Dear Ol’ Dad how about a movie? The Man of Steal, Fast and Furious and Star Trek Into Darkness look pretty darn good! A bit of advice from a mom~ You stay home and just let the kids take Dad to the movies and as soon as their gone pour a glass of wine and do nothing for a few hours or just enjoy a great girly movie. A bit of Mother’s Day on Father’s Day? Why not? After all how many of us Mom’s end up cooking, cleaning and everything else on our day?
