  • 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.
  • Jack Koder was a fantastic guide. We had a great time seeing the planes and learning about the history of them and the airlines they flew for from him.
  • A decent small museum with 3 well maintained aircraft (DC3, Martin 404, and Lockheed Constellation) in TWA livery, as well as an L1011 that they're going to be working on maintaining. Aside from that, they've got a 10min video that they have you sit and watch, then you can wandering into an artifact room, where you can see memorabilia from different ages of air travel. They won't let you into the hangar where the aircraft are without an escort to comply with FAA regs for hot ramp access (completely understandable), but their docent took his dear sweet time talking to the other couple that had shown up at the same time as I did. I was hoping to move along the tour a little faster than the guide did, but he couldn't catch a hint, and the people at the front desk were kind of aloof. While the guide had a vast amount of knowledge of the aircraft, it definitely feels like a hobbyist-level effort to keep the museum going. I think that it would be in their best interest to merge with the TWA Museum on the other side of the airport, as they actually have a lot of good TWA memorabilia, but no actual aircraft.
  • Great venue for a company function. Awesome restored airplanes.
  • This is a really neat museum and our guide was super nice and knowledgeable.
