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

Somewhat small and compact it is located downtown and highlights the role women have played in aviation and space. There are some very interesting parts of the museum and it is free. It is in fact an airport in the downtown area. You can also go there to get a flying lesson with no experience required. Parking is wide open... More

If you are ever in Cleveland, you HAVE to check this place out! It's right down the street from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (which I didn't visit because per my own rules set forth in the first few entries, I'd already visited there in 2006 or 2007 with some friends), the Cleveland Science Center, and the Browns'...

This museum is very underrated. It's free, and in the concourse at Burke Lakefront Airport. The concourse has many amazing artifacts from notable women aviators in by-gone days. It even has a wedding dress in the lobby. There's a lot of history and information available, and you'll never know who you may run into while you're there.

Enjoyed hearing the history of women in air and space travel. Learned a lot I didn't know before. Interesting displays and the docents are knowledgable with interesting stories. Hands on displays are great.
