This is a great place to visit, they have so many planes. The air zoo had the first set of flying Grumman Cats, and I grew up seeing them practice overhead. I've moved away now, but one of the places I KNEW I had to take my SO to was the Air Zoo when we visited my hometown. My only... More

You can't go wrong by stopping here. First of all, the price is right, secondly, a wonderful time qas had by all. We were 3 generations of family, youngest 11 yrs old and everyone was very much interested in all the displays. So many things to see and do, and even if you are not into planes, you still will...

We loved the museum--all for different reasons. Kids loved the planes and the rides. I loved it for the planes and the historical background that was provided as well. We all loved the ride simulators--especially the fighter plane one. Even my wife who is not really into museums had a great time with all the activities! We will definately be... More

This museum has a great variety of aircraft from the earliest to the latest. There is a concentration on WWII planes but there is even a SR71 Blackbird. My visit was cut short by other commitments but One could easily spend a couple of hours here.ss

Took niece and nephew and we all had a great time. There were many planes and spacecraft to look at and even get into. The kids liked the hands-on things the most. There are a few rides that range in excitement for little ones up to teenagers. We paid extra for a tiger exhibit of sorts and even learned something.... More

Extremely well done museum. A must-see if you have any interest in flight. Colorful, informative. Helpful volunteers. Cafe sandwiches were great.

Free to ASTC members, this museum seemed like a good stop for our family with school-aged boys. We did the carnival rides and the free "grocery store" rides in the kids area. It was simple but fun. Planes are displayed in a whimsical setting. This museum was clearly created by those who love aviation.

We came here with our retired parents and should have planned more than 2 hours. There was more to see than we had expected and everyone was really enjoying themselves. We very much enjoyed the planes, but spent more time in the space exhibit and WWII areas. I highly recommend. There is lots for kids to enjoy here too so... More

We went to the Air Zoo for a wedding and was very surprised what an excellent venue it can become! The wedding and reception took place in the main room, and they staff was on hand to run indoor rides (ferris wheel and other very well kept carnival rides) as well as the flight simulators. The flight simulators are excellent,... More
