  • This is a large facility, lots of older planes. Control Tower was fun to visit. Several of the interactive displays were not functioning. A lot of interactive displays were very old and falling apart....  more »

  • Not only is this aviation museum in a gorgeous historic airport but it contains many rare historical planes and engines. I have been in many air museums and while this one may not be the most glamorous, it is definitely the best at explaining the history and mechanics of flight in America. Highly recommended, and a great kids educational play area to boot! Somebody needs to donate a bunch of money to help them realize their 25th anniversary vision!
  • Really fun place to visit. Has an amazing insight into aviation history with some really fun interactive exhibits.
  • Great amount of aviation history from the Building to the Airplanes. Came from California to see the Texaco Stearman that my father flew in 1935 when he was 17 years old. Its like stepping back in time.
  • We were there several years ago. This is a wonderful museum of the history of Wichita. Several restored small planes that are beautiful. Lots of for children. A B52 on the runway, starting restoration. That fave me chills to see the size of it. Knowing it has saved us ,to be a free country. Great place for young and old. The art deco is beautiful.
  • Very nice museum, better than I was expecting. Loved going up into the tower from where you can look down upon McConnell Air Force Base. The Art Deco architecture is nice to see.
