  • Stopped in for a quick stroll. Wound up spending the better part of the day exploring. They have some amazing exhibits and beautifully restored aircraft. We got year memberships and look forward to going back for more. Hands on displays and stuff to do for the kids. If you enjoy aviation, this museum will not disappoint you.
  • Very impressed with the museum. Staff is courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful. Rich, who offered to be our guide was extremely pleasant and made our experience wonderful. I would highly recommend visiting the museum. The history of the aircraft is incredible and most aircraft were once functional rather than being replicas. Looking forward to my next visit!
  • I'm not much of a history buff nor do I have a huge interest in aviation but we spent hours in the museum and I was never bored. The collection they have on display is amazing. The docents are a wealth of information; do yourself a favor and take advantage of their knowledge. Some of them actually flew the planes you'll be seeing. Make sure you go on a day when the cockpits are open. And if you like books, they have a great selection of old reference books for sale in the gift shop.
  • We spent a couple of hours here on a Saturday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised at how cool this place is. We got to climb into a few of the war plane cockpits and try out the steering controls. Everyone we talked to seemed to have a genuine passion for aviation and had plenty of interesting facts and stories to share. Admission is a little pricey but a library pass will get you 50% off. Great activity for the whole family.
  • Great little Air Museum with some wonderful displays both inside and outside another New England treasure. If you ever near Windsor Locks it's a definite must-see. Great for the kids.
