The museum is certainly not very big or fancy, but they have a decent setup with some interesting artifacts and airplanes. Even some space related stuff, like a space suit you can actually touch and a Apollo capsule. They have a selection of "first days of flight" planes and then a few rare planes, helicopters and missiles from more modern... More

My husband loves everything to do with aviation, so we were thrilled to find this exhibit. We were greeted by 4 elderly volunteers, all anxious to tell us about the museum - their enthusiasm was very sweet. Because of that, I would love to give this place a glowing review ... But, truly I cannot. There are way too many... More

Enjoyed my recent visit to the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas. The Museum setting is within a hangar near Love Field. It was fitting to hear the sounds of planes landing/taking off while learning the history of flight, from it's primitive beginnings to space travel and everything in between. So many items on display, very informative, I definitely learned... More

The history of Southwest Airlines is well done, and actually inside of a plane! Also numerous exhibits of Apollo 7. My father would have loved to go here.

If you like looking at old planes and helicopters and a brief history of aviation, this museum is worth a visit. You can walk up pretty close to the planes. Kind of an out of an out of the way museum, but worth visiting. Plan on about 2 hours.

Have lived minutes away for 20 years and this was my first visit. I was shocked at how nice it was and how many interesting and unusual displays there are. I would highly recommend to those of you who have not been, check it out. You can spend an interesting couple of hours there and it's reasonably priced.

I received a great welcome by one of the volunteers who explained the layout and some of the more rare exhibits. All in all it's quite interesting although the number of aircraft on display are limited. That said the information displayed is quite substantial! If I'm to say anything that didn't impress then it would be their gift shop. The... More

Neat air museum. Exhibits and planes were really nice. It had some unusual planes like the Vought V-173 "Flying Pancake". The Southwest Airlines exhibit was especially interesting.

Not the biggest aircraft collection but a great purpose built building with good signage and a very knowledgable staff of veterans who are only too pleased to discuss the exhibits and their exploits in the AirForce. Great for kids and adults of all ages. They don't have a restaurant but don't mind if you use the dining area to eat... More

This is a fun and educational place to go - and the docents are so nice and so full of knowledge about the planes
