Lots of military aircraft and X-wing fighter

What a great collection of military aircraft. Seeing a B-1A bomber up close gives a view of the size of this airplane. It's so much bigger than all the others. The bomb bay doors... read more

We love the Wings Over the Rockies. If you get a chance go on a night that there's an event, like Hops in the Hanger or The 1940's White Christmas Ball! It is a place that can be very quiet on a normal day or lit up when full of people. It is a special place not to be missed.

What a great collection of military aircraft. Seeing a B-1A bomber up close gives a view of the size of this airplane. It's so much bigger than all the others. The bomb bay doors are open so you can see the tremendous capacity of it. See how flight simulators work when someone is there to show you - not always... More

This museum was fun for our whole family. They have space exhibits, a signed Star Wars x-wing fighter and Annakin's pod racer, fighter jets and more. Enjoy the short video at the beginning narrated by Harrison Ford and containing stunning views of the area and why flight has been important here.

Was surprised by the intro video. What a great inspirational slant for kids and aviation industry. (Had forgotten about childhood dreams of flying until mentioned in the video!) Without giving away the celebrity in the video, the exhibit included some related nontraditional exhibits. Tickled to hear youngsters recognize them as we walked by.

We went to a food and beer event at the Wings museum. I was pleasantly surprised by the space and how well it held a large event. Planes line the outside of the main event space, and hang above. There is a lot of Colorado history as it pertains to air and space, and quite a large amount of space... More

Great air museum. Lots of impressive military jet aircraft. We loved it. The museum is very easy to find from downtown. If you enjoy military aircraft you will enjoy the museum. Lots of history.

Our 11 year old picked this as a place he wanted to visit on vacation. Very disappointing. Kids were climbing in the planes only to find out, you had to be part of their day camp to do that. What air and space museum doesn't allow kids to climb in planes? $50 down the drain.

We had a wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable man, and he made it fun for the younger crowd - the kids (and adults!) went into the cockpit of a couple of planes and got to sit in a simulator and 'work the controls.' Overall, a very enjoyable and informative history lesson.

This place was awesome! I was very fortunate to have a person that went with me & could name isn't of the planes& give me some background about each one! Plus my husbands company had an event there which also included the visit of Falcons . So we got to see up close a bald eagle, barn owl, &others !... More

Very nice museum. Many interesting and interactive displays. It even has a 3/4 scale swing model if you are into star wars which hey who isn't? And when you are done with the museum you can walk over to one of the many restaurants for lunch. There is even a beer garden right next door!
