If you're interested in some air history and happen to be in the Fargo, ND area, stop in and see the displays. Had never been there before and enjoyed our visit. Group tour being given to what looked like a summer time youth group and tour leader was extremely knowledgeable in his presentation and was keeping the kids attention.

Very historical displays of planes and the history of each. The Japanese Zero, the Corsair. Can't say enough about this facility - any aviation buff would love this.

Loved it. Shown around by two young enthusiastic boys who were very knowledgeable indeed. Lovely Museum not too big and ideal for adults and children alike. Easy to find near the airport.

The museum, when I visited, had very few aircraft on display; maybe eight or ten inside and three outside. Their one building is fairly small; they were also set up for a reception, so maybe a plane was stored elsewhere. For me, the Corsair and the Mustang were the most interesting, as well as the Huey helicopter. It took me... More

Lots of great planes to see. Go on a tour so you can hear their history. Makes it come alive. One of the fun things to do in Fargo.

The staff is very informative . If the younger kids are there ask them about the warbirds. There knowledge will blow your mind. If you are planing an event, the space works nice and is priced right.

We had our son's 10 yr. birthday party here. We invited 8 boys and they all enjoyed the outing here. The teenage boy guide explained many things to the boys. This would probably be a good activity for children 10 and up who are interested in planes/aviation. I wouldn't recommend the tour for younger children. We took the option to... More

If you are a WW2 aviation buff, this is a must see when traveling in the Fargo area. The museum takes about 1 - 2 hours to walk through depending on your reading time. Spacious museum with high southern exposure windows that let in a flood of natural light. An excellent number of vintage aircraft including mustangs and a Japanese... More

This is a very interesting museum (how many places do you know with an ICBM in the parking lot?) and probably one of the more interesting things to do in Fargo, although an hour is adequate for the visit. You'll see everything from early airplanes to space vehicles, with extremely well written explanations of everything. Lots of fun, even for... More

this is a nice small museum, within walking distance of quite a few hotels. You can walk right up to the planes and the interpretive walls are very interesting and informative. They had much information on women pilots through the ages that I did not know. There is a wall with dogtags of the fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan which... More
