A museum dedicated to the history of flight. There were some signs, and a lot of airplanes. Great to go to if you like airplanes, but don’t expect to learn much, the information was basically the type of plane, and how the museum got it. It looks like just a bunch of old planes in a hangar, there isn’t really... More

This isn't the biggest museum, but they've managed to put a great deal into the space. As some have noted, and as some displays allude to, hurricane damage several years back took a toll on the museum and planes but they've done a great job restoring the place and the displays. Great value and good for at least an hour... More

Inexpensive, friendly staff, great way to kill some time in Galveston. They have several flying aircraft (they sell rides in some for great prices) and many in various states of restoration. They've got a rare PBY in the back of the back hangar. Drop in any day 9-5 and show them we still like airplanes!

I've been to a lot of flight museums. This one has one distinctive plane (a rare bomber that still flies) but everything else is pretty ordinary. Definitely a collection that is broad rather than deep. Quite a few are trainers and the like, not warbirds. Most are restored only in the sense that they bought old planes and refurbished them...

We have visited other aviation museums, so this is compared with a couple really large ones. The museum is nice, worth a ticket as they are a nonprofit and have some nice examples. The problem they have is small real estate. If you go be sure to look at the photos of the damage that hurricane Ike caused in 2008,... More
