  • Visiting the museum on father's day; museum offered 50% discount on one ticket if you visit with your father. Museum is inside large confined space; the main exhibit is the Boeing 747 landed at Hudson river, even they gathered small debris and put it as an exhibit. Also they kept army helicopters, jets, small planes.. Can sit inside jet fighter plane and take photograph but the lighting is limited which makes it difficult to take good picture if you carry mobile phones to do so. Got a chance to watch taxing the smaller plane into the garage, they also kept two big army planes outside the museum On the entrance you have museum shop which has miniature planes, wooden plane toys; found them bit over priced
  • This was a great experience. Never dreamed I would ever see the plane that crashed in The Hudson. Good job Sully!!
  • My 2 year old boy loved it. Lots of fun and very nice tour guides
  • For kids or people who love aircraft this place is great! My daughter is 1 and she was mesmerized. My husband who's 40 was equally mesmerized! Great staff! Super friendly.
  • Nice group of volunteers who do a great job with the small museum. There is not much to see, but it is will kept and the volunteers have a lot of extra information to share. The museum takes about 80 mind to get through. There are plants inside and a few outside too. There is an odd exhibit celebrating a former Piedmont executive, they have his desk. The kids were all puzzled by it. I suppose they are kissing the ring of the local airline executives. Nice sized gift shop.
