My friends had there wedding reception here and it was amazing! The had tables set up around the planes and we had free run of the facility. There was no rush to see everything. I'm it crazy about this type of attraction, but for a wedding reception it was great.

Definitely not the same level as the National Military Museums (Naval in Pensacola or the USMC museum in Quantico), but it is good for a local endeavor. A very good collection of uniforms & weapons...

The Arkansas Air Museum is about what you would expect from an air museum in a small city like Fayetteville. The museum contains some nice replicas and artifacts. There aren't any exceptionally great planes to be found here though. However, the museum does have very nice service. Those who run this museum do represent southern hospitality well.

This is a very cool place to visit to see old airplanes from bygone eras. A definite must see, especially when they have the Air Show.

This is THE PLACE TO GO FOR MILITARY MEMORABILIA. Wonderful old hanger built of wood foot WW2 pilot training. The gift shop has lots of goodies for kids and military buffs. The hanger itself has lots of old one of a kind planes including Sam Walton's first plane. The adjacent military museum has all Sorts of old vehicles and lots... More

From WWI trainers to an A-7 fighter, a wide range of materials are on exhibit in one of the few remaining wooden hangers from the airfields days with the Army Air Corps as a training site for...

Every other review on the air museum had great things to say. It makes me that much more disappointed in my experience. My daughter and I visited the museum with a homeschool field trip. We got a student discount. I would have regretted going if I paid full price. The woman at the front desk wasn't rude or mean, but... More

We visited during the Bikes, Blues & BBQ Rally and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. After paying a $15 per person entry fee, we were allowed to tour the museum hangars (where, amongst many things, you can see Sam Walton's first airplane) and proceed to the tarmac to inspect about a dozen WWII commemorative air force airplanes that you could pay...

This is such a nice museum. Not only are there some very special aircraft, but the displays of guns, uniforms and memorabilia really tells a real story of WWII. If you are lucky, you can be there on a day when the guys that restore these aircraft are there and speak with them.
