    We thoroughly enjoyed viewing the US Airways Flight 1549 "Miracle on the Hudson". The backdrop in the hanger was the New York City skyline and under the plane appeared like reflections of water ~ real...  more »

    The star of this museum is the Miracle of the Hudson plane. It's neat to see it and read accounts of the incident from the pilots, crew, and passengers. You can sit in a mock cockpit and ejection seat, learn about how airplanes work, and see the outsides of old military, passenger, and private planes.

    As a military brat some of the exhibits brought back almost forgotten memories. Small museum but well cared for, enjoyable way to spend some time. Alot of history on display.

    The "Homeschool Day" was not as advertised on website. There was no "guided tour" offered to us----it was all self-guided. I do know that they were giving two guided tours, so don't know if they were full and that is why it wasn't offered to us? The egg-drop experiment was in addition to admission. The website stated that under 5 were free on Homeschool day, however we were charged full price. The kids and I enjoyed the museum and planes, which centers around "Flight 1549".

    Extremely knowledgable and friendly staff. Very cool to see the plane from the Miracle on the Hudson, along with many others.

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
