Content: The 14 year old boy was pretty much into Cars & Planes than the Mozarts. Hangar 7 is a must visit museum which has Cars & Planes on display. The entry is free but the food & red bull merchandise inside the museum was a rip off. We took a self drive car before we drove to Hangar 7. The kiddo enjoyed every moment there though.
