  • After a $16.00 prepaid Cab ride from the BDL terminal and still having to Google the address for the cabbie so he could find the place (which was well signed if he'd just followed them. ugh!), I was a...  more »
  • Good selection of aircraft all but a handful are now undercover. Good for anyone interested in aviation. 
  • I have been to the museum a dozen times. I took my 88 year old father in law, a long retired engineer from Hamilton Standard (now UTAS) a UTC subsidiary. I'm never bored.

  • An amazing experience. The staff were absolutely incredible and offered as much knowledge as you could possibly absorb. They went out of their way to find you looking at something and came right over to explain or answer questions. Fortunately for us, it wasn't very busy so we were lucky to have this luxury. Wear comfortable shoes and charge those cell phones up because there is a ton of stuff to photograph. Don't forget about the few pieces of interesting aircraft sitting outside the building. A great place to take groups, or kids or even a nice quiet date!
  • Amazing collection of planes with a very knowledgeable group of volunteers. Their B29 is worth the price of admission alone, but there is so much more. A blimp, a flying boat, a p51 racer! Plus more engines than you've ever seen in one Location. Highly recommended for kids of all ages.
  • My husband and I live in Connecticut and my husband has wanted to visit the museum for years. I thought it would be boring, but recently, we took out-of-town guests for a visit and we were all blown away. We went after lunch and stayed until they closed at 5 p.m. and still hadn't seen everything. It's huge, and their collection is massive, with helicopters, space suits, planes from different eras and informative displays. Some of the items displayed are rare. I didn't realize how many aviation-related businesses there are in our small state. There were many helpful volunteers to answer questions. You can sit in some of the aircraft and see how hard they would be to operate.
  • A great museum with a lot more then I expected. Displays can shift so don't be surprised if you see something new or missing. But their headliner, a B-29 has a new hanger and a lot to discover. Try to hit a special event to learn even more about the plans and Aviation History
  • Very interesting place, there all type of plane and helicopters. There a lot of history.
