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.

A good museum showcasing the history of American Airlines and the history of aviation in general. Quite informative for kids and can be a great outing for kids. Visuals on how the airlines industry works were really good. Slept through the documentary movie though!

I !will never forget decades ago when I took my foster daughter's brother to the C R Smith Museum on the Home Campus for American Airlines just a tad SW of DFW. He was mesmerized. We both love to fly, but our feet stayed on the ground while our heads were flying from the present to the past and all... More

What a hidden treasure. This hands on history of American Airlines is filled with pleasant surprises. The lego interactive is terrific and the DC3 you can walk into even smells like it's been around for more than half a century. Don't miss the film.

This is a good place for families with children to visit. The cost isn't exorbitant and there are lots of activities to keep children entertained.

CR Smith is a lovely, small museum about airline travel, specifically about the formation and history of American Airlines. There is a very good video for your viewing pleasure as well as an airplane to examine and enjoy.
