  • An excellent collection of aircraft and ordinance dating back to pre WW2. You can get inside a C130 for a better view. There are planes both inside and outside with a host of different guns, rockets.....  more

  • Exceeded our expectations. From the moment you drive up and see the planes displayed outdoors, you know this will be a great museum. So much history and so many planes. The volunteers were all so...

  • Excellent museum. Very well maintained and offers a lot of interesting history. Just seeing the many planes and helicopters up close was incredible. The volunteers were very nice and knowledgeable.

  • Must see! The Hill Aerospace Museum offers a vast array of all things aerospace plus. From a model of the first working airplane to more modern aircraft, munitions, personal stories of the brave men and women who have fought for our country, detailed display information, a cockpit tour and many larger aircraft that surround the museum. A huge thank you to the many wonderful volunteers for their service to our country and their help in making our experience greater! They can answer your questions, direct you to whatever your looking for, point out hidden gems, offer personal stories, insight and info on current and future features. I took 3 boys aged 5-7 and it kept their attention for over two hours. Entry is free but donations are encouraged throughout the museum with convenient donations boxes. We will return to learn more about our countries past through this thoughtful and beautifully curated museum.
  • What a wonderful way to honor our history! Parking and entrance is free! Clean facilities. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Visiting hours are only until 4:00 pm. They also have a gift shop inside. It was not crowded. You just have to deal with the mask Nazis.
  • It is one of the best museum's I've been to here in Utah! If you love history, military history, or love awesomeness! This is the place, I need to clarify one important thing, everything is free except for the flight simulator, I suggest planning the trip in advance and buying your tickets ahead of time, seating is very limited, it's $15.00 per person, it looked well worth the money! They have aircraft from the Wright Brothers to modern military aircraft, if you look closely out the windows in the hallway you will see one of the very first (if not the original) Air Force Ones parked on the tarmac! My children loved it, I loved, an Awesome worthwhile trip a hidden Utah Gem! Talk about shook and awe! God bless our troops and all our military and emergency services personnel!
  • Nice aviation museum about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City. Opens Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm. The Museum exhibits many artifacts depicting the history aviation of the US Air Force, Hill Air Force Base, and the state of Utah. There are picnic tables so you can bring lunch or snacks. There is a souvenir store but no concessions. You can easily spend 3 hours looking and reading about the different planes and stories. There is no admission, but you can make a voluntary donation if you wish. A great outing for little kids and the big kids.
  • This place is incredible! You only get a little glimpse of it from the freeway, but the second you enter, you realize this place is way cooler than you expected! First, they have an SR-71 inside this place! The first stealth plane that flew at 80,000 and could take photographs while flying at mach 3! SUPER COOL!! Next, they have literally hundreds of things to look at including F-16s, an A-10, missiles, bombs, literally, more than 50 full size fighter jets, airplanes, helicopters, and more. You could spend hours here and it only feels like minutes! Plus, they are continuing to develop "Experiences" that let you go inside airplanes, missile silos (replace scaled down) and more. It's just amazing what they have here.
