  • Nice little museum. It will take about an hour to walk through and the planes are well maintained; they have been restored and cared for by the volunteers and staff. The layout is simple and it makes ...  more »
  • We've visited the museum several times over the past few years. My husband and I both have taken flights offered there. It's a wonderful experience! We are sorry to see them leave Galveston but look f...  more »
  • We had a blast! Lots of planes and informational plaques. Definitely worth it for the money, especially if you need something to get out of the heat! HOWEVER, I did read something that indicated JULY ...  more »

  • This place is awesome! I attended a wedding reception here and it might be the only reception I've attended that the men enjoyed as much as the women! It easily accommodated entertainment with a classy environment. Not only does it have lots of airplanes, motors, propellers, etc... It also has great, interactive displays. And patrons are allowed to get really close to many of the airplanes. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.
  • Great place to spend a couple hours with the whole family. Restrooms are clean with changing tables and there's a snack room with tables and vending machines but I'd suggest packing some sandwiches and snacks from home for meals. The membership pays for itself if you go twice a year, and then you can get a discount at the gift shop as well. The planes, volunteers, and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Check out their event calendar for some fun, inexpensive family outings.
  • The museum has been completely revamped since it's move from Galveston. It looks amazing. Very clean and open exhibits allow you to walk among some of the coolest aircraft you could ever see in person. The rotating exhibits also allow for a different experience every time and the flight academy let's kids 10 and up try flight simulators and even do a flight check in a real plane all at no extra cost. Can't wait to come back.
  • I wasn't sure what to expect coming here but WOW! I came here with my kids (5 and 2 years old) I just came on a whim. Heard about this museum and decided to come today and so glad we did! SO COOL! I could've stayed longer (my 2 year old was throwing a tantrum) however this place is great for kids AND adults. The aircrafts, the history, learning how planes work and how they have evolved over time was interesting. THANK YOU TO DUNCAN!! Not sure if he was a volunteer or he worked there but he was great with my son (he has autism) helping him learn about planes and navigate the different exhibits. I highly recommend coming to visit this museum. Be warned it's not easy to find I had to use my Google Maps to find the place and it was a 40-45 minute drive but totally worth it! I am going to come again in a few years when my kids are older.
  • Wow, what a cool place for plane buffs! Impressive collection of aircraft all presented in immaculate form and setting as this museum is brand new! Awesome addition to the area with NASA just down the highway.
