  • My son and I were going to the Airshow in Westfield on Sunday and we were staying in Windsor Locks. We had been to this museum 2 years ago when we were in town for a different Airshow and we really wa...  more »

  • Definitely worth the trip to CT for. Not much in looks from the outside just looks like old hangers but inside there are lots of planes that the kids can actually get into the cockpit and play around ...  more »

  • Guides were great! Very knowledgeable and loved what they did. Some incredible exhibits here!! They let you sit in most of the aircraft they have on display. Very nice people. Just don't accidentally wander into the military base beside the museum.
  • This volunteer created and run museum is by far the best air museum we have visited to date. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly and helpful. The location is easily accessible with plenty of parking. We would highly recommend it!
  • Wonderful exhibits about aviation history. Going there at less busy times allows extra tlc from the extremely knowledgeable guides. And getting to sit in the cockpit of multiple planes. Ever expanding exhibits and personal history. You could spend a whole day, or just a few hours here. Very reasonably priced.
  • Awesome to see all the aircraft up close. You can go in many of them. Kids really enjoyed it.
  • This place is open on Monday on holidays and on school vacations... but not many people are here I think because of Google being Incorrect and refusing to cooperate with updating hours. Google please get on this. This is an amazing place that I almost didn't come to because you said they were closed. It can't be that difficult to change your hours for museums purposes...
