Great museum to visit

Great history of AA. I was at the headquarters and went through it. Nice collection of memerobilia. The docents are all retirees of AA and are interesting to speak with.

Had a few hours to kill, and - being an aviation buff, we decided to visit this museum. It's full of history and educational exhibits and videos, as well as some hands-on items for kids. You can also tour the vintage DC-3 aircraft permanently based there. The History of American Airlines is an interesting adventure into the many changes in... More

If you're an American Airlines or aviation fan then you'll enjoy this place. I love how they change the interactive hands on part of the museum for children. There really is something for everyone to enjoy!

A great tour through the history of the Worlds Largest Airline! If you go see the short film in the auditorium about the first aircraft to carry passengers and how air travel has changed over time.

very well done and put together. refurbished DC-3 on display for boarding. history displayed in circular format from 1938 to present. many interactive displays. AA was innovator and leader in industry. one of their innovations was flight attendants (stewardess back then) short movie while sitting in 1st class airplane seats. again with the information overload.

If you are an airline buff (or even if you're not), this is a great place to visit. There is a lot of history in this museum, some interactive fun and a great film to watch. It takes two hours or more to do this museum justice, so don't rush through it. Take the kids, take your parents, take the... More

We visited recently which was our 2nd time. The last time we figured out was about 13 years ago (WOW how time flies). Our visit was late on a Saturday and we almost had the theater to ourselves for a private viewing. It was a great film. The displays are very informative with lots of trivia of interest that I...

First time visitors on 4/14 . I thought the Museum was excellent. The real deal is that my wife with very little interest in aviation history said; "We have to come back." MY only regret is that they don't have a working simulator, which other "aviation" oriented museums [I can think of Lexington Museum in Corpus Christi] have. But the... More

My son loves airplanes. We have been here twice. They have a short film (they do change it but I'm not sure how often). The displays are set up to show how the industry changed. They have a some very nice tribute items for 9-11. They have a gift shop but I found it to be pricey. They do charge... More

A museum that interests children is a rare find in a suburban area, but the C.R. Smith is one we're fortunate to have in the H-E-B area (where Fort Worth meets Euless). Exhibits geared toward children rotate through the year, so it's good to check the schedule. Our kids enjoy getting inside the big DC-3, learning about the controls with... More
