  • If your a history buff at all you’ll want to see this museum. We went on the guided tour which didn’t cost anymore and I’m glad we did. Our guide shared so much information and stories, which made it ...  more »
  • A definite "must see" in Colorado Springs. Plan ahead. The museum isn't open every day and tours are just the beginning if you want to get the full story. I've been there twice, once with my adult son...  more »

  • Great museum with a good variety of aircraft. It's spread over several hangers and they have around 8 or more aircraft. I highly recommend taking the tour because you get a lot of good information and you get to access the WestPac hanger that has about 8 more aircraft you can't see at the museum.
  • Great museum and very knowledgeable staff! Well worth the visit. Make sure you make a donation.
  • Great local museum. Awesome tour of restoration facility. Very knowledgeable staff. Some very rare aircraft (P-47D, P-38F, F7F, F2F)...all are immaculately maintained and flyable. Plan 2 hours for the tour.
  • What a wonderful informative museum to visit. So much to see. Especially the P38. Gorgeous.
  • This museum was amazing. We went there on our vacation to see WW II aircraft. We did see beautiful aircraft however the best part was the history shared on the guided tour. My entire family, including the kids, were attentive and truly interested in the tour. The passion and knowledge of the entire staff was evident. This is a first class museum and I am greatfull for individuals who work so diligently at preserving the history of the men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom. Go to this museum and donate to their cause.

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
