This was on my son's must see list and it did not disappoint. The boys loved the aircraft and the girls loved the displays of Colorado aviation history. It was nice that there were sofas spread throughout so if you were tired of looking at planes, you could take a little rest. sort of out of the way so the... More

This museum was amazing. A huge hanger with real war planes. My husband and I loved it and were in awe of all the planes. He loves history. Check web site before going as they do sponsor a lot of events here. Its amazing to see the rockets in space and how they were made and designed. A must see... More

Wings over the Rockies has a very good collection of aircraft and space vehicles with some very good information posted. You'll want to have time to read through the displays so give yourself a couple hours.

Wings over the Rockies is a museum of war planes and Coloradan Astronauts. Housed in one of the last standing hangers of Lowery Air force Base, the museum has something for everyone. The guys and kids will love it, but f your female companions are not into this sort of thing, can be boring for them. Also check with the... More

My family decided to go to this attraction a few days before we went. When we got there, we found out that the museum was closed to the public because of a private event. The staff at the desk let us in to see the planes for a much cheaper fee and we couldn't go near the event. The planes... More

We came here when visiting family. It was an alright museum of old war planes. It was of more interest to the guys, but the females in the group were a little less interested. The "space" section was very limited & focused on local astronauts. It is not air conditioned & when we visited in was unseasonably warm weather. Volunteers... More

The boys and I loved this stop. Their favorite was the Star Wars star fighter signed by the actors in the movie. The volunteers were great and very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about all the different planes. This is a great place to visit.

If you or your kids are at all interested in aviation and you're in the Denver area, then this is the place for you to visit. The building alone (a decommissioned Air Force hangar) is worth a look. The whole facility is really nice, but it seems like a young museum that's still trying to get it's legs underneath itself.... More

This is a very nice museum housed in a large hangar. It's surprisingly large, the exhibits are varied and many. We loved looking at and learning about all of the different aircraft, and were surprised that Harrison Ford and the movie Star Wars have a connection here. Would highly recommend! Allow at least two hours.
