The staff was very nice and helpful! The kids (ages 6 &7) enjoyed themselves and so did me and my husband! We enjoyed reading about the planes and comparing their weights. We got some good pictures and I feel like we spent a good two hours maybe more at the museum. Good, nice, family fun!!!

Great place all around with plenty of material and a great location. Close to local eateries, Wings Over the Rockies provides an excellent attraction for both local or tourist.

Everything about this place is excellent. They are so accommodating and not only do you learn while you're there you can also be a big kid. You can actually climb into a couple of the planes and also have toy airplane rides that you get into and pedal around. So fun!

I mean "nerd" in the best way possible, of course! Wings Over the Rockies is similar to other aviation and/or war museums I've been to (Kansas, London, etc.) in that it's a collection of planes in a large room (in this case, an old hangar) with explanations and accompanying exhibits. This one is a good size, so it's manageable, and... More

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.

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
