As a new employee, I very much enjoyed learning the history of the company I am working for. I loved the information and the interactive parts of the museum. The only down side was the old plane honestly smelled HORRIBLE. Like a lavatory.

Great place telling about the start of American Airlines and how I has progressed though the years. Lots of video clips telling a part of the airlines history and many relics accumulated over the years.

A must see for anyone who loves to fly. Many hands on activities. Film and historic displays, including flight stewardess uniforms. Actual early airplane for people to see what early flight was like. Photo ops and gift shop. Easy parking,clean restrooms and handicap access. Fun for all ages.

The museum has artifacts and history exhibits for American Airlines. The largest item is a DC-3 aircraft. The exhibits are nicely presented. The museum is medium-sized - more accurately on the small side of medium. If you are associated with American Airlines or maybe any commercial airline occupation, this should be of interest. I'm not in the airline industry. But... More

Don't get me wrong, we learned some interesting facts about aviation - maybe I'm just not that impressed after coming from the Ross Perot Science Museum last week. The simulation was down when I was there :( so that also may explain my ratiings too. If you have smaller kids (ages 3-5), they'll love the Lego exhibit that currently going... More

Esprcially since US Air is taking over AA this will preserve the heritage of what American irlines was. You can go there on a stopover at DFW if enough time. Its about 20 minutes each way from the airport to AA headquarters. Also hours may be limited so check first, think it might be volunteer staffed by AA retirees. But... More

Great to visit for those who have never visited or for those who like to think about how air travel has changed. Admission was just $7 and included an IMAX type movie. Also have an original DC-3 that you can enter and sit in the seats and think about when it would take hours and hours to get from one... More

My grandson loves airplanes and was very entertained. From the full size DC 3 to the modern 777 engines, it was very informative. All aimed toward the younger crowd but interesting to adults. If you fly a little or lot, you should go just to see the way things have changed.

What an excellent venue, including the IMAX movie presentation. I don't really know what the admission price is (employees are free), but I love to try and go at least once year and see what has changed, updated, etc. Lots of hands-on exhibits if you have young ones, and always interesting scoop on many facets of aviation/history.

This is one of those must go to places. It has an amazing behind the scenes experience of AA old and new. I loved the hanging models that all looked like they were in flight.
