This place is very cool if you like planes and history. The inside small but well done, but when you get out into the hanger WOW! They have a number of great old planes in different stanges of renovation along with old Jeeps and such from WWII. Very cool place and very well priced.

very interesting museum for aviation enthusiasts and kids alike. It is worthwhile to visit as well as helping out the museum trying to recover from hurricane Ike.

They have a wonderful exhibit of planes. For what you "get", a little expensive for a family of 5. They are still recovering from damage sustained in the 2009 hurricane.

My husband loves history - especially military history - so I agreed to take a break from the sun during our Galveston visit and check out the flight museum. What a fun way to get out of the heat and check out some history. We paid the $5 extra to get inside the B-17 - that was really cool. Very... More

A great museum with lots of planes and their history. I liked my visit and learnt about the planes's history as well as the first women flight association. Interesting.

Several years ago we went to this museum. I remember that my son was able to sit in some of the airplanes. This time, there was no planes to sit in. Took less than 30 minutes to see the planes. Not worth the price or time unless you have someone fascinated with airplanes.

Enjoyed the old planes and some of the other displays. Not a huge place but well done. Nice little gift shop too.

For an aviation nut like me, this place is a must visit. Like a kid in a candy store, I enjoyed walking around the hanger admiring all the aircraft. The B-17 was pretty cool! All the restored aircraft there were just too cool. The staff of volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable when it came to information about the aircraft.... More
