A trip to the Kansas Aviation Museum is a must for aviation buffs. The building is spectacular and is on its way to being restored to its old glory. I had the great opportunity to have a semi-guided tour by one of the volunteers. Without his knowledge the experience would not have been so great. I would recommend seeking out... More

It is a great museum and my husband has been twice and takes company to it often. The items in it are remarkable.

This place is fantastic well worth the visit. It took a while to see the whole place and the restrictions of photos you have to be aware of, but the planes are amazing the cockpits inside the place are a great place for the kids to play. The building itself it great it really gives you a good atmosphere.

Took my 15 year old grandson. He is a history buff. He liked the hands on exhibits, seeing how different airline travel was compared to today, the control tower, and the Mercedes. The Fed Ex plane was available for entering. Hopefully the other planes will be available for viewing as the museum grows

For being the capital of aviation it wasnt worth it We went thinking that we might be able to see lots and lots of planes and what a surprise we got! Everything was so dirty, no variety and no clear instructions to tell you where to go, sadly a complete waste of time, won't go again and won't recommend it.

This is a medium size museum, and for those who love aviation you will find in the tarmac some great aircrafts as the A37, the B 52, B727, among others, inside of the museum you will find amazing part of the American aviation history, as a retired air traffic controller I found really interesting the visit to the old control...

I have to say this was much better than I anticipated! I loved all the airplanes and hands on items that they had. The kids LOVED pressing all the various buttons. I loved all the reading materials and probably my favorite was the air traffic control tower. I loved reading about the first female air traffic controller. My kids loved... More

It is worth a visit, the museum is in the original building and it is in very good condition, outside they have different planes and you can take pictures of it. They did a good job inside you can read about Wichita aviation, this is a good place to take your kids, they will enjoy it.
