If you love the smell of aviation fuel in the morning, you will love this place.

First, this is an aviation museum. If you are not into aircraft or the art of flying, you will most likely not find this museum too interesting. But if you are one of the many who... read more

First, this is an aviation museum. If you are not into aircraft or the art of flying, you will most likely not find this museum too interesting. But if you are one of the many who are fascinated by the history of manned flight, this is a good place to start. The exhibits range from the mildly interesting to the... More

We went with our 2 1/2 year old daughter and we all loved it! The planes from all the different era's were outstanding! The staff were great and allowed us to go into some of the planes! The toddler play area was so much fun! And you can go outside and watch the planes take off!! great day spent here!

Spent three hours here and all three were spent enraptured by the presentations and displays. The staff was amazingly knowledgable and helpful. It being a Tuesday afternoon it was quiet (which I prefer anyway) but that also afforded me my own personal guide giving me an overview of the facility. I wish all museums were like this. The only point... More

I learned a lot about the Hindenburg. I didn't realize anyone survived that crash. "Uncle Sam Wants You!" and other posters was a trip down memory lane. Good info on the beginning of flight.

I visited over spring break with my children, ages 4-12. They had some extra activities for the spring breakers, such as using computer flight simulators, experimenting with wind tunnels, and paper airplanes. We met a wonderful period-character, Orville Wright, who gave the kids an interesting and memorable "first-hand" account of his and Wilbur's history making plane/flights. There is a cute... More

This is a really neat museum at Love Field Airport. Lots of cool planes and displays. Kids would love it, even the grown ones.

Spent a little time here with my 13 year old son and found a couple very interesting exhibits, especially the POW experience. They had a good bit of information but some of it just seemed dated. The docents were very nice and helpful. It was not a bad way to spend an hour or so out of some Texas midday... More

The museum is certainly not very big or fancy, but they have a decent setup with some interesting artifacts and airplanes. Even some space related stuff, like a space suit you can actually touch and a Apollo capsule. They have a selection of "first days of flight" planes and then a few rare planes, helicopters and missiles from more modern... More

My husband loves everything to do with aviation, so we were thrilled to find this exhibit. We were greeted by 4 elderly volunteers, all anxious to tell us about the museum - their enthusiasm was very sweet. Because of that, I would love to give this place a glowing review ... But, truly I cannot. There are way too many... More
