Sometimes you just need to spend some time reliving history. This is one if them. Seeing the complete airplane from the Miracle on the Hudson is worth the visit. This is great for kids to see the history of aviation. Nothing fancy or spectacular, just solid exhibits.

Our last visit was due to my wife wanting to see the newest display of the US Air plane that went down in the Hudson River in N.Y. Impressive. The museum is not a large one although it continues to grow. Something there for all....young or old.

We have been here many times with friends and family when they are in our area visiting. We always enjoy going and one cannot help but come away awed at the Miracle on the Hudson that day!

If you like history, planes or military this is the place for you to visit. From civilian planes to Vietnam era helicopters and war planes the Carolina Aviation museum has it all. I found it extremely interesting looking at all the cockpits and gadgets these planes have to offer. A great day trip out for the guys.

My wife and I took our 5 year old daughter here before we dropped the rental car off at the airport. All three of us loved it, they even had a photo scavenger hunt for my daughter. Great info on all the planes with some hands on opportunities. Loved the info about the plane that crashed into the Hudson river.... More

This place is a nice place to spend a couple hours. There are lots of planes in which 3 of them you can sit in. The Hudson and seeing all the military planes was the best part. However I do not think its worth $13 a person and there are fans in the museum but no ac. .

We took a short vacation trip to Charlotte, and I took my 2 kids (ages 3,boy and 8,girl) to the museum. They absolutely LOVED this place!! My 3 year old didn't want to leave. They have a cute little work sheet for kids (my 8 yr old loved it and it kept her engaged). There are at least 3 planes/jets... More

We made our first visit to the Carolina's Aviation Museum and absolutely enjoyed it. The actual Miracle on the Hudson plane on display was great as well as all the other aircraft. Easily accessible from interstate 85 and the staff were very friendly and informative. I highly recommend visiting this place for any aviation enthusiast !

This museum is nicely maintained. There are a variety of aircraft on display, with the most substantial being the Miracle on the Hudson plane. The corresponding documentary airs on a TV in a back corner for anyone interested in watching. There is also one plane you are able to sit in - perfect for photo ops! A few planes are... More
