I had a free morning on a trip to Dallas, and found the Frontiers of Flight Museum a great way to spend a couple of hours. The Museum has plenty of volunteer docents to answer questions about the exhibits. As a big fan of the Apollo maned space-flight era, I was thrilled with the exhibit centered around the Apollo 7...

We took our grandson here, because he loves airplanes and this was a BIG hit for him. The volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. It was kid friendly and a fun place for him to visit. He loves Southwest planes and really enjoyed being able to go inside the one at this museum.

I went on a Friday afternoon. It was an easy walk from the hotel. The building is appealing and the aircraft on display outside certainly catch your eye. It was not very busy which allowed me to wonder around in relative quiet surroundings. The displays are well presented and although SouthWest Airlines are well represented it brings the Love Field...

I was volunteering with the Collings Foundation on their visit to the museum. The museum has many different types of aircraft on display as well as an interactive Southwest Airlines exhibit depicting the process of air travel. Lots of WWI and WWII facts. Overall a amazing place to visit!

We went there on a Friday and it was not crowded. We were given a free tour around and that made all the difference. Our guide "Gary" was an army veteran and quiet knowledgeable. There is a play area with an aeroplane that kids could climb into and pretend to be pilots. Our kids just wouldn't come out of that... More

Not the largest air museum but informative and well presented. Very helpful ex-service guides to add expert knowledge. Visit spoiled somewhat by inconsiderate parents allowing their children to should and scream excessively (albeit in the play area) - so loud it was impossible to listen to some of the exhibit presentations.

This museum, located near Love Field in Dallas, offers a look at the history of flying from the Wright brothers to a view inside today's jumbo jet. When our seniors group announced a trip to this flight museum, I wasn't sure about going. But it turns out that the $6 entrance fee (senior rate) was well worth the time and... More

Went to a dinner hosted at this museum through a conference. It was very interesting to see the vintage planes that hang from the ceiling and really cool to see some fighter jets up close and personal. There are facts about each plane and a section about the history of commercial airlines. Even some airline seats you can sit in.... More

Volunteer retired pilot interpreters are often on-hand to give a personal recollection and more insight to the experience of being in these craft. Compact and varied collection with exceptional preservation.
