My father was a bomber pilot in WW2, so I am the expected Air Force brat. Love all things airplane, and especially historical stuff. Terrific displays from across the expanse of Manned Flight. It amazes me to see how really flimsy those old aircraft were. Humbles me to think of all of those "....daring young men, in their flying machines....."... More

This museum offers a great perspective on flight history. The variety if interactive exhibits is very interesting. Lots of aircraft to climb in and out of. The exhibit featuring Southwest Airlines is very well done.

Very nice museum, spacious and well laid out. Adults are $8.00 and it is worth it if you are in to aviation and flight history. There was a birthday party going on when we were here, which is a unique idea for a child's birthday. A lot of things were chronicled, such as the WWII POWs, the demise of Braniff... More

The museum is situated right off one off the runways at Love Field so when my small friends and I were on the second floor we really enjoyed watching the Southwest jets taking off and landing. The only challenge with seeing the planes is that the windows upstairs are not standard size so a boost might be needed for viewing.... More

We attended the museum when they were celebrating the anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. The staff were very nice. There was a lot to see including lots of air planes. Not expensive and great way to spend a few hours.

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!
