Love the display and loved the hop on bomber. My son is active duty (27 years) and was treated with the utmost respect and courtesy. I can't thank the staff enough for making it a special day for him.

We had seen an ad to tour this museum, as well as take rides in vintage war planes. This museum had actual planes flown throughout the 1900s and world wars from the United States and other countries. They had exhibits with photographs, their stories and pilots. The Navy, Air Force, helicopters, and private planes were represented. It is not super... More

This was an indoor museum, even though it includes about 20 vintage airplanes (from trainers to bombers). Funny thing: our 5 and 7 year old grandsons were more interested in an airplane pedal toy than the real planes. Although they do want to come back and take any of the flights available through the museum.

This museum adjacent to Falcon Field is a good stop for adults and youngsters 10 and above. There are about 3 dozen aircraft of all sizes and vintage, from bi-planes to jets, an excellent film on the B-25 Mitchell bombers which were used against Tokyo and usually at least one plane under restoration.

My grandfather was a pilot during WWII. I grew up hearing all of his stories. Going to this museum brought it all to life. It was neat to see all the planes and memorabilia. I am glad I had a chance to experience all of this.

Great family trip but could also be enjoyed by yourself or as a couple. We happened to go on a day that Sentimental Journey was flying, it was really cool to watch it land and take off. The staff are all very helpful. There is so much to learn and appreciate. My son's school recently had their prom their as... More

For not much $ you get to see some nice WWII era airplanes, including P-51s, C-45, C-47, and others. There are also a few jets, including a F-4, a MiG, and a Canberra. And you can walk into the workshop and see the volunteer mechanics at work, restoring airplanes in their collection. A good value, imo.

Great place to visit. My son really liked all the planes and history. The guides were all very nice and knowledgeable. They were not very busy the day we went and because of this we received pretty much a private tour.

Wow an exhibit! Our kids loved this museum. There is a good amount of displays of many airplanes to view. The kids enjoyed reading the history as displayed throughout the tour. We also liked that we could wander through the hangar at our own pace. The best part were the planes outside that we were actually able to walk through.... More
