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.

The family visited here out of curiosity. It was great to learn about the aviation history in the city. I have lived in Wichita most of my life and until this visit I had no idea about the history of the airport and how vital it was to cross country travel. The exhibits were interesting and informative. I enjoyed going... More

Very interesting. it was fun going up into the air traffic control tower. It was really hot, there was only one plane you could tour inside, but this was a minor issue as the rest of the museum is well worth visiting

I might give this three stars for the actual condition of the museum but four stars for all the updates that are underway. The museum is in the old Wichita airport terminal between McConnell Air Force Base and former Boeing now Spirit. It needs LOTS of work. At present, they are installing an elevator and heating and air conditioning. An... More

Two floors of information and also the old planes outdoors. An elevator will be installed by Fall of 2015 for people with disabilities. You can also climb up to the skydeck or place where they used to direct planes when it was an airport and an airfield.
