  • This museum is pretty small. You will probably get through in about 30-45 minutes. Though some of the narrative is interesting, it is a small museum at a small active airport. 
  • We live in DC and have been to the big Air and Space Smithsonian museums, which are great. However they are crowded and take a long time to visit. This little museum is a great find, and our 2 & 4 yea...  more »
  • I was looking for a fun place for a toddler on a rainy day and this fit the bill. One of the best things about it is that it is not overly crowded--you don't have to spend lots of time waiting to see ...  more »

  • The staff is HORRIBLE. When I got there, there was no receptionist. We were forced to wait. We waited 10 mins, then I decided to walk in to see if he was inside the exhibit. I found him, and he accused me of not paying and disobeying the rules. I payed him, and brought my friends in. 10 mins later, he finds us and tells us that our time was up, and forced us to leave. He told us we had just arrived 10 mins before closing time. What a scam! The exhibit was so small, I got though more than half in 10 mins. Its not worth the $5 per person. The google pictures account for half of the exhibit anyways. Its actually more exciting to browse the history of aviation through the web than to go to this museum. If you wish to go to a museum, the Smithsonian Air and Space is far better, and just a metro ride away. (the tickets are cheaper than $5)
  • They had such amazing pieces that I haven't seen at numerous other flight museums. I loved it all and the people were kind. I only wish you had little metal planes for sale as I'm trying to collect them. This was the first place that didn't have anything.
  • I accompanied my 6 year old in a school field trip to the museum, kids loved it and they learned a lot about the history of aviation. A lot of interactive exhibits for the kids to keep it interesting is a bonus.
  • Kids friendly museum that is also a great find for aviation enthusiasts.
  • Good for a local museum but doesn't take more than 45 min to see everything with kids.
