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

Nice museum, but smaller than I imagined. All the planes were "working" planes and there were other things to look at including a small library. They let you get right up to or under the planes. Nothing is roped off, you can't climb inside them, but was nice to really see some of these planes up close. Beware of well... More

This is by far one of Fargo's best sights. If you are visiting and like aviation you need to see this place. They just expanded and it is great.

Not a huge collection but still worth a look if you enjoy vintage war planes. They sometimes run special events, like Vietnam era planes and they do bring special events, like taking a ride on a WWII B-17 bomber.
