We went because my grandson loves anything that flys but he was quickly bored when he found out he couldn't touch anything. It has a fascinating amount of history, a huge amount of planes from every era and there's a welcome film with Harrison Ford. I think men would enjoy this a lot more than I did, but if you... More

A great place to see different airplanes through history and climb around the planes. They also have a virtual reality exhibit in which you can fly a plane and engage in dogfights that the kids just love.

A little further out then I prefer to go but it's a nice location for a corporate event. Guests can walk around and sit in airplanes, use the simulator etc.

I love aviation and everything about aircraft. The amount in this collection is very impressive. A B1 Lancer? OMG they have it. Other than the Museum of the USAF in Dayton this is the largest collection I have seen. Some unique items I haven't seen elsewhere. B 58 escape capsule, a display talking about the Colorado ANG Minutemen which was... More

I like aircraft displays. I like military history. Others are not nearly as interested, but can appreciate a well-done museum no matter the content. I have to admit that this museum really suffers from organization or professionalism. I hope I'm not offending some curator, but many of the peripheral display rooms look like they were put together as a school... More

Was pleasantly surprised about this. Its actually pretty big, and lots of aircraft. They have other events on the horizon like beer, blues, and BBQ. I will most likely attend this as well. They had rooms and special things for bday parties. They have veterans disccounts and other disccounts

This is a very nice museum to visit. If you enjoy planes, make sure to try their flight simulators. My husband and son had a great time trying their hand at flying. Interesting displays and the Star Wars enthusiasts will enjoy the X-wing fighter that is on display. The Space and Air Force planes were interesting to read about. It... More
