The CR Smith Museum is named for the founder of American Airlines. In addition to AA memorabilia, the museum offers an excellent look at the he history of the passenger airline business. Do you have children with you? They'll enjoy it, too, as there are many hands-on exhibits and the opportunity to go inside a real 1930's era DC-9 aircraft.... More

Been to this museum 3 times now over the years, last just couple months ago taking our 3 yo granddaughter to see the old airplane. Interesting you can walk up into the cabin and see it all. All other hands on gizmos for the kids are very interesting as well. A must see if you are close by.

Very educational, and a lot of fun for the kids (and grown ups, too). Small, and can easily see all exhibits in an hour or two.

What a wonderful museum. The history of American Airlines is the history of passenger flight in America. The museum is very kid friendly with quite a few activities for young kids. At the same time there are a number of interesting exhibits for passengers and pilots. I especially like the DC-3 sitting in a large open area that is open... More

We saw an ad for the C.R. Smith Museum in a brochure we picked up at our hotel. So glad that we did as it was a great place to tour! The film, exhibits and timeline from 1934 to present are excellent. Definitely worth the trip!

This museum was one of the reasons for coming into DFW. Being an aviation person myself, it was nice to the history involved with American Airlines and a few other variety of airlines as well. There is lots to see and is a must if you coming the DFW area.

A nice museum to visit in the surroundings of the DFW Airport (around 7 USD entrance fee) and just in front of the American Airlines Flagship University. Not very easy to reach if you don't have a car and if you go by bus you might need to walk from the Centreport Station of the TRE Station or take a... More

My wife and I visited the Museum on a free afternoon. Since I'm an airline employee, I enjoy airline nostalgia and back stories of the industry's growth over the last 100 years. The museum has some great exhibits and some really good hands-on displays for kids. An elementary school field trip was visiting the day we were there, but the... More
