  • Always worth a little extra drive to spend the day here. Awesome planes and exhibits. Favorite has to be the SR-71 Blackbird and one of only a handful of museums that have this jet. So many aircraft you can spend hardly anytime looking at each plane and still have ti take over an hour. Or spend the day taking in each exhibit and take your time which is what I recommend cause this place is packed with some awesome aircraft. well worth the cost of admission (which is free).
  • One of the best USAF museums without a doubt! Admission is FREE and the museum is staffed by an amazing group of volunteers, many with detailed knowledge of aircraft and some amazing personal experiences. I live nearby and have visited this place many times and have always enjoyed it. Thanks to the museum staff and volunteers for all they do to preserve this important piece of Aerospace history!
  • Our flight got delayed so we decided last minute to stop here. It was amazing! I have no special interest in planes or the air force and was quite skeptical when my husband suggested we spend our new found extra time here but he was right. I can't believe this cool museum is free! I would recommend this to anyone staying in Salt Lake City Area.
  • Awesome place to visit and see aerial equipment and planes from the past to present. Lots of great info and things to see. Very big place, takes at least an hour to an hour and a half to see it all. Nice little gift shop too. Was awesome to see my favorite two planes; the A10 and SR71!
  • There were so many planes! All years from the beginning of aviation. The displays were amazing! My grandson is 6 and he LOVED the scavenger hunt. It kept him busy so I could actually look at everything and enjoy it, too.
