Good aircraft museum with some vintage aircraft, as well as Vietnam era jets. Has a NASA Apollo capsule, and a trainer for the SR-71. If you are a aircraft enthusiast, its worth the stop.

Frontiers of Flight Museum has several unique exhibits - an SR-71 (Mach 3 spy plane) simulator, Apollo 3-seater capsule (yes, these three astronauts spent over a 100 hours in there, in a space barely larger than pickup truck cab), Flying Pancake experimental aircraft and a T-35 trainer jet that later evolved into F-18 Hornet. But what makes this place really... More

If you have time this is worth taking a few hours out of your busy day to visit. This museum is never crowded the staff is friendly they seem to be constantly updating and improving this location, I'm fortunate to be Dallas based so our Aviation group has held private meetings at this location. They certainly knew how to setup... More

This museum has some very interesting pieces on display. The "Flying Pancake" is an obvious highlight, but there is also an SR-71 simulator and engine, a space capsule (you'll have to forgive me for not remembering exactly which one, I went in September and it's now January!) and a replica of the Wright Flyer. The main displays essentially take you... More

I learned things at this flight museum. It surprised me that after all the similar museums I've visited, I learned things all around this museum. Each little section has a different story and more history. The kid plane is fun too. Sometimes Groupon sells discounted admission. Parking is free and it is easy to find and get to.

The Museum is a must see for adults or children interested in the history of flight . From Kitty Hawk thru both world wars and the space program , the museum has something for everyone and many interactive displays. There are also two 737 SW Jets for touring in one wing of the property and an excellent collection of posters... More

This place is awesome! They had a few World War 11 Veterans there when we visited. The airplanes and stories are amazing. They have airplanes the kids can get in and play around in. They also have a souvenir shop full of great mementos. We all enjoyed it very, very much and would like to go visit again soon.

My 10 yo son and I had three hours before our flight. We stopped at the museum at 4:20. We had a very helpful volunteer give us tips on what to see. He loved the full size planes and the kids area (and he's 10...). Nice gift shop with a variety of price points. Worth a visit!

I loved taking a look at all the different airplanes that have been made over the centuries. It was fun learning about the history of flight and seeing just how far we have come in the flying industry. Put this on your top 20 of things to see when you are in Dallas.

Great little aviation museum with good feature display of Braniff International and Southwest Airlines. Right next to Dallas Love Field and easy access.
