  • It is interesting. Wish there was even a portion of a plane to explore on the inside. Was hoping to show family that has never flown. Make sure you remember which door you go out of when venturing on ...  more »

  • This museum is awesome! The staff are very knowledgeable and the exhibits offer great information. The flight simulators are so much fun. We went for the Just Plane Fun event and loved getting to explore the inside of the different planes. It's great for all ages, too! My 3 year old enjoyed it as much as the adults.
  • Very cool place, lots of interesting aviation history. Very helpful and knowledeable staff. Plus a play area for both kids and adults.
  • This is an awesome facility, with excellent historical aviation displays and a staff extremely well versed in the content and ready to help. It was especially fascinating to me as a senior. Brought back a lot of great memories.
  • I have visited the Kansas Aviation Museum several times over the last decade and it always improves with each visit. This was once one of the busiest airports in the nation. The architecture is special and the exhibits are great. Lot of fun for aviation enthusiasts. The best part is climbing the narrow staircase to the control tower which has sweeping views of McConnell Air Force Base and Spirit Aerosystems. Kids will like the simulators and all the big aircraft on the tarmac. Don't miss this Wichita attraction!
  • An underappreciated gem. It's a little rough around the edges and a work in progress, but still worth a visit to get an understanding of aviation history in Wichita and beyond.
