  • Had such a fun time here with my 5 and 2 year old! Probably would be better for school aged children, but my boys were still thrilled to see the planes and other craft up close. Docents are very sweet and happy to talk about the planes, and they have a great gift shop. It's a smallish museum and you can see all there is in an hour or two.
  • Really cool museum with a lot of classic and interesting planes. My favorite was the jetpack exhibit. Loved seeing it and thinking about the crazy jetpack commuting idea from the 60s. They also have food trucks come every Wednesday. Great spot.
  • Very large with a lot of interesting going activities. Even though it was great from a many things to do standpoint, I saw a mother who lost her kid because it was so large. If you have older kids and multiple adults, I would definitely recommend it. If younger kids, you might want to wait a couple of year before going to that museum.
  • The best thing here is Google Earth view in multi screen. Felt amazed to fly through Grand Canyon, Taj Mahal, etc
  • Enjoy historic helicopters from Hiller's designs. Very interesting with a cool gift shop. There is also a drone training center in the back to learn how to build drones and fly them.
