This place is huge and we have attended a wide range of events there and never felt crowded. Parking is easy and convenient.

Have been here a few times and always enjoy it. Of course I'm one of those aviation nuts so it might not be that interesting for everyone. They seem to have cool events going on occasionally like a kids book-reading with Amelia Earhart (the living one), movies, balls (the dancing ones), yoga?? etc. The wright flyer simulator looks cool for...

We visited this museum for the flight simulator, but really the museum is the gem. We do not have kids, but it was adorable to see these really small children look in awe at these massive planes and all of the small questions that come along with it. It was a wonderful experience, my husband's first time at a hangar... More

We took my brother and grand daughter here on a winter afternoon before Christmas. It was a nice display, Our 7 y.o. Grand daughter loved the scavenger hunt( more of a quiz that her papa helped with) and they met Amelia Earhart! It would be fun for the kids if there was more interactive displays. A tip: print the on... More

Museum holds a lot of exhibit, really enjoyed when I visited the museum. Volunteer people available were really helpful to describe. Museum was an old military hanger which was now converted to museum.

Needs more to attract the public. It is nice for aviation fanatic. But let us face it this is not NASA or the Air and Space museum in DC. Sorry

This is a half day activity with a good diversity of plans. We went for the Star Wars X-Wing fighter.

It doesn't really have anything that would put it over the top as a must see but if you enjoy aviation then you'll appreciate this place. It does have some good local displays about Colorado units both air and space. Great for families!

This museum has a nice collection of aircraft. I started my visit by watching the 8 minute film featuring Harrison Ford giving his views on flying. The planes are displayed in the main hangar area. There are also side rooms with smaller displays, suck as aircraft nose art and the Colorado Air Guard. There is also an area that has... More

This museum is ideal for anyone with an interest in air and space. The collection of planes and exhibits is extensive, and the setting in an huge hangar at an former Air Force base is ideal. We arrived close to closing time, so had to make the visit a quick one, but I could have easily lingered for more than... More
