What a great place to learn aviation history, space history and this year they have the traveling DaVinci exhibit which was just amazing. 4D theater, flight simulators and space shuttle simulators along with some amusement type rides for the younger ones. Over 60 different restored planes on display. We spent a good 3-4 hours touring this Museum.

We were travelling between hotels, and this was a stop on the way. We went in, not really knowing what to expect. I mean Air Zoo - animals? But what we found were planes from many eras, There were rides having to do with the air as well. There are even simulator rides, one of a space shuttle launch and... More

I enjoyed my trip to the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The prices are a bit high, but it allows you to use all of the rides in there as much as possibly throughout the day. There a many planes and they are all in very high condition. Some of the planes are very unique and special. The building is... More

We live locally and my kids love to go to the air zoo to ride a few rides and then get some popcorn and pop from the cafe. The flight simulator is hands down their favorite ride. But, there are also several fun rides for younger kids (my 9 and 12 year old still like those as well). It's a... More

Had friends from out-of-town and decided to fill in a morning. Low expectations to begin with, ended up spending 6 hours! Great collection when you put together the main building and the annex, with lots of engines as well. Not Smithsonian grade but really good, in my opinion a nice complement to say Dayton Wright-Patterson. Really good collection in impeccable... More

This summer we're teaching our kids "The Science of Flight" and this was a perfect spot to learn about flight in a fun way. There are airplanes on display, but also amusement park rides that the kids can ride endlessly. They especially loved the flight simulators.

This was quite fun to go visit. Went with daughter and two grandsons, we all had a great time. The area where planes were was nice, clean and the gentlemen answered questions very nicely. The eating area needed attention along with the restrooms...they were a mess!

Nothing gets you more pumped up then being able to be right next to a blackbird (super sonic military airplane) and being able to touch it. it was an amazing feeling to be in the presence of such an amazing plane. But the blackbird isent the only plane at the museum. Theres tons of other birds there. My most favorit... More
