  • I've driven past this place dozens of times on my way to other places but finally made the trek here with my grandsons this past summer. Wow. If you're an Aviation buff or ex Air Force or something li...  more »

  • Lots of historical planes and good exhibits detailing aviation history. Kids absolutely loved it...so did the adults. It's well worth the trip and if you have a membership at an ASTC affiliated museum admission is free.
  • It delivers. Recommend taking the tour, really explains the culmination of how we came to have the aircraft we do today. Small children will be real bored if you don't hit the gift shop to give them something to play with first. Loved the WW2 nose art collection
  • Very cool pieces of history here. Cockpit simulators and fun stuff for the kids too. Staff wasn't the friendliest or it would have gotten 5 stars.
  • I went here for a school field trip and the people there were very well organized for us. We all had a fun time with all the activities that we could do.
  • Great displays and events. I love seeing the wide variety of aircraft at the museum and learning about the history and unique components. I've been visiting since I was a kid, and I never fail to learn something. The Hops & Props event is very fun (I've crossed state lines to attend for 3 years now - my one complaint is they don't do the mugs for VIP anymore!!) as well as the classic AirVenture events in the summer. Highly recommend checking it out with time to spare!
