  • I only had a short time to visit but thoroughly enjoyed this museum. I thought the displays were informative and well done. As a former Link Simulation employee I was really surprised to discover they have a very nice early model Link Blue Box simulator display. Very cool to see one in such nice shape with a great display detailing get how it was used for training WWII pilots. I hope to get a chance to go back a revisit this museum when I have more time to spend.
  • Very well put together museum, good staff. We enjoyed the content and experience.
  • I enjoyed it. The museum focuses on the important role of US Gliders during the World War 2. Very well displayed artifacts in incredible good shape. A real glider is even displayed inside. If you visit Lubbock, this is a good stop.
  • This is a great museum if you want to learn about the WWII history and about the gliders, one of the most interesting and apparently useful aspects of war systems. Try to catch their free times. They have real-life models, planes, a nice projected show, etc.
  • Cute museum and like the fact that I can see planes land and take off.
