We went to beer festivius here and loved it! Combine beer and airplanes - what could be better! It featured 50 local breweries and we got to walk around a look at airplanes while we drank it. Not too shabby.

Nice displays but was expecting more from the description. Only 1 had actually seen any action from what we gathered.

You get a close-up view of different air force planes. Temporary Bob Hope exhibit is excellent. Lots of pictures, memorabilia, videos. Something to please everyone.

Wings Over the Rockies is certainly the best aerospace museum in this part of the country, and it is absolutely worth a visit. There is a substantial collection of military aircraft, along with tributes and memorabilia covering NASA missions and rocketry. On the day of my visit, it appeared that many aircraft had been shuffled around to accommodate an event... More

This museum is very impressive. It's full of AWESOME planes and memorabilia. It also contains many NASA displays and information. I am the grownup in the family, but we really go for me, instead of the kids. Sure, sure they like the planes and all, but I LOVE IT. If you are in Denver and looking for something different to...

Excellent selection of aircraft and exhibits. Really enjoyed seeing the Star Wars x-wing and pod racer. The Amelia Erhardt display was intriguing. There's a nice room for kids with books, toys, peddle-airplanes, and a real airplane to sit in. Wings Over the Rockies participates in the ASTC Travel Passport program making it a free visit for our family; much appreciated.... More

We purchased a membership shortly after visiting for the first time. With 3 little boys it is a great place to look at all sorts of aircrafts including space items! My husband's favorite is the Star Wars section! Those come to life the first Saturday of the month with characters. Thoroughly enjoy it!

If you have any interest in aviation or the people involved in it, this is a must see. It is not the biggest but it is large and well laid out. Reasonably priced, too.

Really enjoyed this place. There are so many planes and things to see. It just oozes history. There are often veterans there to talk to which makes you feel like you can experience a piece of their memories. It is definitely worth it.
