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.

This is in the old Wichita Airport Terminal building. The exhibits inside are ok, but not real exciting. The big attraction is the planes on the flight line, some of which you can go into. Also, it was nice to be able to go up into the control tower and see all over. I thought the admission price was a... More

The museum looks like a work in progress but there are three floors of aviation history that you can view at your own pace. You can view airplanes up close outside the building. A real gem!

The museum keeps improving, and is getting better and better at serving school-agers to introduce and invigorate an enthusiasm for aerospace and aviation. Wichita's important contributions to the history of American aviation are well preserved and documented in this facility. May be better known to outsiders than to locals. Located in a historic airport building from the 1920s which have... More

There is quite a bit of aviation history made in Kansas with Beech, Boeing, and Cessna located nearby. This museum has good explanations and exhibits, a variety of aircraft on display on the grounds, and is housed in a previous airport complete with air traffic control watchtower as part of the display. Great, authentic view from the watchtower!

I'm not really into planes, so really wasn't terribly excited about heading to this musuem with my hubby, but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The art deco decor on the building alone was worth the trip. There are several very good exhibits. I learned a lot, and had a nice time - well-worth the visit.

Took our 10 year old granddaughter last spring and she, as well as my husband and I, were very much pleased with all there was to see and explore. One of the large planes was available to board, there were computer simulated flying modules for several age levels, as well as one inside a cockpit which allowed us to "simulate"... More
