This museum near DFW very completely covers the history of American Airlines, one of the first commercial airlines, and thus much of the history of commercial aviation. Detailed exhibits of the many airplanes, and each facet of what it takes to run an airlines, one can get a much greater appreciation of commercial airlines and American Airlines in particular.

We took our three kids (9, 11, and 13) here for a couple of hours. We all enjoyed it, although my younger two liked the traveling exhibit, which was similar to a children's museum (little grocery store, etc.) better than the main airplane exhibit. I enjoyed the museum the most. The DC-3 was interesting and I really liked the wind... More

The museum is ok. They have done a few changes throughout the years. We liked the movie, however, the music on the background was so loud that we could not understand the narrator. There were about 8 people in the auditorium and we all felt the same way.

This is a great place to spend a few hours. During our visit we learned about the history of American Airlines through some very nice exhibits and a short film. The DC3 was interesting to tour as well. The volunteers were very informative and nice to talk to. With the museum being so close to the airport, we were also... More

Nice way to spend a few hours learning about American Airlines. They have a DC 3 on display to show you what flying was like back in the beginning. Their timeline of how the company has grow is amazing will all sorts of details. If you have some time before catching your flight out of DFW, visit the American Airlines... More

It's tough finding affordable places to take kids in the summer. I have known about this museum for a long time but never looked into going until a few days ago. I took my 9 year old son and my mother mostly for a Lego Castle exhibit the museum was hosting. I won't say much about the lego exhibit because... More

have been numerous times and always neat to watch the short documentary about how American Airlines got started. Lots of display items to see with the showpiece being an origional DC-3 that you can walk into. They have a small gift shop with t-shirts, model plane kits, etc. There's a very small entrance fee but well worth it. If your... More
