  • If you're an aviation buff, this museum offers a tour of several famous aircraft that represent highlights of civil aviation history. With a quick walk-through and explanation of each bird. I had a one on one tour with a retiree that got long winded at times but was enjoyable to learn the history of each aircraft and design. The main exhibit is a Lockheed constellation, an airliner that was designed by the same man that designed the U-2 and SR-71 blackbird.
  • Simply awesome. A little jewel of KC. Guided tour of these aircraft was over the top.
  • The national airline history museum is awesome. Lots of really older aircraft but very educational. Great family activity to do.
  • Very interesting. Definitely worth the time for adults and $8 entrance fee if you are even mildly interested in aircraft or history. It is a great time for kids, but they NEED to be able to behave because the tour is in a working aircraft hanger and there are lots of ways for kids to hurt themselves if they are running around.
  • Very interesting. Our guide was amazing.
