Cape May airport has airshows and I've seen several WW2 bombers there, I was inside a B17. Dover Delaware has an Air Transport museum and they have a C47 and a glider. lots of other really cool aircraft too. I was lucky enough to fly in Executive Sweet B25 over Sedona in 2013. If you want a truly chilling experience go the the Air and Space Udvar- Hazy museum in DC, they have the Enola Gay.

Many years ago I toured a B17 and a B24 in Hartford CT. They were owned by the Commemorative Air Force, called the Confederate Air Force at the time.
I was with my father who was a Crew Chief on B24's during WWII.
That day I grew a whole new appreciation for the servicemen who maintained and flew those airplanes.
As others have said, I couldn't believe how small they are inside.
I attached a picture of my dad, unfortunately we have no idea where it was taken.
