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.

Love this place!! We had a fabulous afternoon at this museum looking at all the lovely aviation pieces. So amused by how they place the Southwest aircraft cut through the building. Oh so cool! It is also located strategically near DAL so don't miss out on the beautiful outdoor view (especially during sunset) with some US air force planes.
