If you ever wanted to get up close and personal with a B-1 bomber, this is the place for you. Lots of aviation and aerospace "stuff" to keep you busy for hours

Great variety of exhibits from small stunt planes to jet fighters to bombers to the real bombs, including the atomic variety. R2-D2 is there, also. Good explanations for the displays and no photo restrictions. Museum has balcony to look down on the planes. The video was not working the day were visited and the simulators were not staffed, so we... More

Right in our own back yard. If you haven't been, put it on your to-do list this spring. Get up close with simulators, fighter jets and stories from retired airmen. Great place for kids. Hit the beer garden next door afterwards for light fare and more fun!

Lots to see and read and guides very knowledgeable. Really great location in a hanger. Parking good, but difficult to find without sat Nav. Exhibitions included are fabulous. As a traveller form England I was looking forward to seeing the history of flight from American perspective. Space exhibition was excellent. Gift shop not too great. Can get a coffe close... More

My husband is a pilot but has not flown in over 20 years. He spent 3 hours going through the museum. He absolutely loved it.

The best thing about this place is that it is located in an airplane hanger in SE Denver on what used to be Lowry Air Force Base. We spent an entire morning here at one of their special exhibits, in which you could actually sit in some of the jet cockpits. My 6-year old boy had a blast. The place... More

This museum is great for seeing a lot of "old" planes up close. I just wish there were a few newer planes than 1975. I may be wrong on the date, but if you go you will understand. A very cool experience in seeing all the planes up close and equipment they used. Also the X Star Jet fighter from... More

We used a Groupon to view the museum and participate in a 30-minute simulation for two. The simulation was definitely a different experience, since it was like you were flying around in an army jet and you had the option of working alone, in a co-op, or in a dogfight (against each other). I thought it was fun once you... More

We took our grand kids to see a special kids math exhibit and to see what else was there. Many of the interactive exhibits both in the special exhibit and the museum didn't work. They have a cool mock up of a cockpit where people could sit in the cockpit but a grumpy old man stood over the kids telling... More
