Very informative.

The displays and aircraft are very good. Need more people to donate their personal air items for others to enjoy.

I've been to the museum half a dozen times and always enjoy it. However, by comparison with a lot of other museums it doesn't have much in the way of explanations. I've seldom seen any women, so I guess looking at airplanes is more of a guy thing. Several times I've gone with a pilot who explained the various planes... More

Staff was very helpful. The antique planes were very interesting. Nice tour. If you are interested in the history of flight this is the place for you.

I was surprised at how many exhibits this lovingly run and maintained museum had. I was expecting a bit of a hole-in-the-wall small scale museum, but instead was greeted by a healthy number of aircraft and an excellent selection of military support vehicles spanning several wars and generations. There were quite a few air force uniforms and assorted memorabilia including... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from this museum, but it had more than the name implies... we walked past the old militia jeeps and my 3 year old asked what kind of plane it is! ha A great learning experience for the middle-aged and young alike!

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.
