Museum is located right next to American Airlines' training facility and can be accessed by all (note opening days). The museum boosts a good display of the journey and history of American Airlines' and all the airlines that merged to become American Airlines. The centre piece of the display is a DC-3 aircraft that operated for AA previously and the... More

There are so many displays that you can hang out for several hours. They also have traveling displays that change often so each visit is different. The uniforms and aircraft is cool (a little smelly). My 8 year old and my 15 year old both had fun, which is hard to do!

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
