We visited during spring break, and even then it wasn't very busy. The staff are very nice and helpful, ready to answer any question you may have. I loved the 737 display outside, but was sad that I couldn't climb in the cockpit. I took lots of pictures and look forward to seeing how this museum will grow in the... More

My husband could tell me what kind of plane we were looking at before we stepped up to read the explanation, which is well presented. Of course, he is an 'old fart' and 'old planes' are a real love of his. Our time spent was a step back to a simpler time in aviation. The enormity of the planes up... More

This museum is as much about reading the history of flight as it is seeing it. I really enjoyed it but my kids went through fairly quickly with their dad. It's a very informative overview and the staff is very knowledgeable. There are some nice restored planes as well as many scale models and other flight-related displays. In contrast, my... More

Focus is mostly on more modern planes with a few older reproductions. Most have short history of that particular craft but no detailed background info. Would be nice to be able to walk around the planes but there are barriers that are too restrictive in my opinion. Didn't offer much I didn't already know. It's small but it's only $10.

Even if you are not an airplane buff, there is something to capture everyone's interest. Soft play area for kids, real airplanes to admire, read about, and some times enter. Good aeronautic displays, too. Located essentially next to Love Field.

This was a delightful experience. Loved the Apollo 8 capsule, seeing something that returned from space was amazing. The F16 out front had Texas connections and was interesting. Lots of Southwest Airline history (seeing the airplane stuck outside the hangar was fun). The history of Branif was unique. You need to see the 'Pancake Airplane', also. Price at $8 is... More

I visit this attraction the last day in Dallas. I wanted to go to DFW airport without going to visit one attraction in town ... This attraction is very close to where I was staying in the Market Center just 15 minutes. Just go to the military history section, there was no time to see more from the little time... More

Attended a special catered event there, where you eat in the midst of all these planes and displays. Cool displays and informative things to see; didn't have kids so can't comment in that althou they do seem to have some cool kids things. Only 8 bucks for adults - pretty good deal!

Went to a 4 year old's birthday party here-the kids had a lot of fun in the play area. The rental fees for the 2 birthday areas are pretty reasonable. Other areas are also available for rental for events. My husband and I had some time to stroll into the museum area. There are multiple excellent exhibits in a very... More
