We visited this museum on our trip to Omaha to visit our kids and granddaughter. My husband is a World War II buff. He thoroughly enjoyed all the planes and exhibits. I found it very interesting. I'm always amazed at the amount of money our government has spent in the name of peace time defense.

This museum is fantastic. Lots and lots of airplanes, lots of space, very updated, very fun for the kids and adults. Lots of big planes, not just little ones as I've seen in other mueums. This musuem has something for every age, even a huge blow-up slide for the toddlers. This museum is a great way to spend a few... More

This museum has most aircraft you would associate with the US Strategic Air Command (SAC). And it has several others too, including several space-related exhibits. I was in town on business with a colleague (ex-US Army). He and I spent a wonderful afternoon at this great museum. Of course, we are both fans of aircraft in almost any context, so... More

First of all, the people who work or volunteer at these exhibits are a delight. They know their stuff and they are very friendly. Even if you know nothing about any of the many, many machines in this hangar, there is a lot of information posted and people to ask. The jumping castle was $5 for the day and a... More

Nice afternoon spent with our 9 year old son. He was fascinated with the planes and really enjoyed the ones he could climb into and pretend he was flying. I was impressed with the number of planes they have indoors. Nice restrooms and even a restaurant inside. Large gift shop was a must see for our son as well. I... More

First, I am retired military and used to be in SAC for a short time so undoubtedly factors into my review. Not sure people with no military service would be as impressed. First, this is a bit out of the way unless you just happen to be traveling on 80 through NE. I was in Omaha on business so took... More

The Strategic Air & Space Museum has an impressive collection of planes displayed in a wonderful building. Planes are well described, but it all seems a little too clinical. Where is the emotional appeal? The planes need more first person narrative, an airman's recounting of something that went amazingly well or awfully wrong while flying such a plane. The best... More

There were 8 of us that stopped in. We all enjoyed ourselves. There was a lot to see and do. The traveling exhibit, Math Alive, was very interesting with lots of hands on activities for the kids. (Unfortunately, the exhibit closes on 5 jan). There is still plenty more to see. The static display of aircraft was well layed out... More

Went with our 6 year old. Was interesting and plenty to see. Probably priced accurately. They could have some more interactive activities for the younger kids. They a couple rooms with but could not determine wha was private and what was not. They had a traveling exhibit call Math Alive. Very cool.

There is a lot to do and see here. Can get up close to the planes and a few you can actually get inside which was very cool. I am not that in to aviation like others in our group, but I found it very interesting and fun. The kids liked it a lot and we didn't hear any "I'm... More
