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

I've been to this museum many times in the past. I've always loved it. Actually, I love just about everything to do with planes. After all, we used to live in the Dallas-Forth Worth area and I retired from American Airlines. This museum lays out the history of the airline. It's fun to visit and there are many things to...

This smallish museum is probably not a must see but interesting regarding the history of aviation and american airlines.

Museum is located right next to American Airlines' training facility and can be accessed by all (note opening days). The museum boosts a good display of the journey and history of American Airlines' and all the airlines that merged to become American Airlines. The centre piece of the display is a DC-3 aircraft that operated for AA previously and the... More

There are so many displays that you can hang out for several hours. They also have traveling displays that change often so each visit is different. The uniforms and aircraft is cool (a little smelly). My 8 year old and my 15 year old both had fun, which is hard to do!

This museum near DFW very completely covers the history of American Airlines, one of the first commercial airlines, and thus much of the history of commercial aviation. Detailed exhibits of the many airplanes, and each facet of what it takes to run an airlines, one can get a much greater appreciation of commercial airlines and American Airlines in particular.
