The exhibits and static airplanes were worth a visit and the admission if you have the time, but not very exciting for young grandchildren unless they are heavy into aviation.

The museum is constantly improving. Has added handicapped access, an elevator and air conditioning within the last year. Nice area for the kids to learn and visit.

VERY AWESOME place to see old airplanes and learn history of airplanes and their use. Go up in the control tower and look out. Buy souvenirs.

My relatives and I were in the area for a wedding. Having a day to tour around, this was the only thing that I thought would interest my 1 year old son. We were a group of 14 including my boy, a bunch of relatives in the military, two college students, 1 high schooler and my aunties. We all found... More

I was passing through wichita, saw the sign and thought why not and spent a couple of hours looking around the museum, also going up into the control tower with views over the airbase. The staff are really friendly.

Not a bad place to go at all. Had a lot of aviation history stuff. Had a lot of simulators both mechanical and computers. Very kid friendly and a lot of computer stuff for them to do. You can even go up into the control tower. They also had a display of airplanes outside. However, only one was accessible in... More

First rate museum for the person interested in aviation. Many examples of aircraft and the history behind each of them. Some were actually built in Wichita and have a special history of their own.

Kids and adults both enjoyed this fantastic museum. History of aviation and displays well done. Not enough advertisement for the treasures it provides. Will go again for another trip down memory lane.
