Enjoy the Goonie-bird!

Everything American Airlines is here. Great for kids and adults alike. Have returned numerous times since it first opened and each time I learn something new. Great place.

This is a great museum. I have been to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, and that museum kept reminding me of this one. It is a bit biased toward American (naturally), but it presents a good overview of the history of aviation in general, especially civil aviation and airlines. There are a lot of real... More

The CR Smith museum is a must for airline and flight buffs. There are many displays that explain lift and how flying works. Fun things for the kids to do. The old DC-3 is fun to look at, and the movie is awesome - you sit in first class seats and can buckle yourself in! Nice gift shop also.

I am a dedicated US Airways employees and love aviation history and for that I gave this a 4 but overall this museum needs some updating. Hopefully after the merger is done they will devote some time to this nice museum. Best part is the movie theater with all of the aviation seats.

Still not made up my mind about this spot. It seems interesting, the DC3 is amazing to stand under and go into (although a little pungent). Obviously most of the exhibits relate to American Airlines, and they try very hard but some of the interactive stuff is aged, and the movie is a little disappointing. The shop has some Amazing...

Spent a couple of hours at the air museum with kids ranging from 19 months to 16 years old. All had an enjoyable time, including the 19 month old who is enthralled by airplanes, as did parents and grandparents. A great indoor break on a hot North Texas humid day. Lots of interactive exhibits for the kids. The adults loved... More

This museum is one of the most interesting we have visited. It details the history of American Airlines and the airline industry. Take the kids. There are many interactive exhibits that they will enjoy.

This free museum is great for both adults and children. From a full size plane to a hands on flight simulator, this is a great afternoon adventure.
