My guy, myself, his Mom and sister went here 9/2013 and admission was free. Parking was free. There were not many people there wandering through the museum. The exhibits were interesting. The museum was smaller than other museums inside. The employees were nice and informative. I spoke with a Weatherman there who explained "Lake Effect" snow in the Cleveland OH... More

Too bad if you missed the annual IWASM event: "Corks on the Concourse". This year's theme, "Flying Fiesta," was ¡fun-tástico! As always, there was plenty of food to be had and wines to taste. The auction baskets were packed with a wide variety of quality items, and... whoever won the bid for the leather flight jacket certainly has a special... More

Very interesting museum - take the time to read the stories of the first women pilots and the struggles of them to be taken seriously by NASA during the early space program. The artifacts on display are interesting included a tire from the space shuttle.

I brought my 12-year-old niece and she thought it was fun and educational. I did too, though I wish there had been more stuff for kids to actually do.

I came Here, mainly because it was free. It's just a hallway and a gift shop. But I did enjoy reading about women pilots from the past. There are some planes that you can look at as well. There is also a propeller that looks the same as an obstacle in stage 3 of America Ninja Warrior. Worth a five... More

We only visited this museum because it was free, Even though it had some interesting facts, I am glad I didn't have to pay. It took only about 30 minutes to wander through.

Wiman can be great pilots. As a pilot myself (commercial, multi, instrument), I always looked down on them (as an engineer I looked down at wimmen engineers too) but I've been wrong They were brave and heroic. Many many intersting aspects of flying including the fact that they had no seat belts in those days and pilots and passengers did... More

The brochure says: Take Flight! Discover the Women of Aviation & Space. Free admission. I believe that this is the only museum of its kind in the world featuring female aviators in ALL aspects of aviation & aerospace. There's even an impressive research collection -- Fay Gillis Wells Center. There are a lot of events here, too. Book Sale, Rocket... More

This was an interesting museum to visit. We parked at the SS Cod and then asked permission to leave the car there while we walked to this museum. The museum was free to enter, very small and the exhibits felt spaced out to take up more space than what was really needed. It was worth the visit since we were... More

The collection is spread over half the "public" space in a virtually abandoned air terminal. When you enter, you are not at all sure you are in the right place, or where to begin, but resist the urge to leave. Wander the place and explore. We spent an hour and came away with a whole new understanding of our space... More
