The museum also leans a lot on its volunteers.
In addition to the veterans who bring these pieces of history back to life, some folks donate their time by just helping clean.
Krystal Osbon has been bringing her family to the museum for six years.
Together, she and her young sons help clean the display cases and aircraft.
"A lot of people are forgetting the sacrifices and things that have been made so that we have freedom. Whether people agree with the wars or the different choices that our leadership has made, those are the decisions that've been made and people have had to voluntarily or involuntarily sacrifice and I feel it's important to appreciate and honor that," she said.
Osbon said the museum keeps those sacrifices and experiences alive for future generations.
