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.

I have about 2 hours to kill before taking my flight and decide to visit the museum. I love planes and anything related with commercial aviation. You can learn about the aviation industry start it and how American Airlines start it too. You have a lot of interactive exhibition. I spent about 1 hour before going to the airport.

I really wasn't expecting much when I visited recently. How interesting could Aviation be for a Senior citizen. I couldn't have been more wrong. There are so many interesting types of interactive exhibits, films and interesting memorabilia for folks of every age. There is really something for everyone in the family to enjoy even an authentic 1930's cargo plane! In... More

Went here a few weeks for a summer camp field trip. The kids had tons of fun with all the cool hands on stuff they have there. There is also tons of stuff to look at for the adults to keep us entertained as well. For me personally, it wasn't something I am very interested in but I really enjoyed... More

Take the time to visit even if you are not an aviation buff. Not a big place, but lots of cool stuff to look at.

Went over Spring Break, I was surprised that there were not more people. This museum discusses the history of commercials flights in the US from the American Airlines POV. It's pretty well laid out, and easy to follow in sequential order. Very nice volunteers will assist you. The gem is the airplane that you can get on and poke around... More

Located in the American Airline main headquarters. Its cool i guess. Just a way for American Airlines to tout their history for empoyees and visitors

This Museum was very educational and it has so many actual pieces that you can see all the things you always had asked yourself or wonder about planes. There even is an actual airplane you can go inside. The Kids Really like the interaction and they even have a flight simulator. The Shop inside is quite nice and they have... More
