So maybe it isn't the biggest museum in Texas, however it's certainly awe inspiring to think that these machines are still airworthy. There are volunteers around if you have questions, and you can arrange flights in some of the planes, for a price.

Awesome place for anyone who likes aircraft. It is a wonderland for my 8 year old grandson! It can be hard to keep him from going through the ropes!

We visited this museum since the days that we were in Galveston it rained a lot and we couldn't be outdoors. The museum is nice and has a good number of aircraft on display. We wouldn't recommend it for small children though, since they can't appreciate the significance of the aircraft and there are not activities/displays geared for children. We... More

I have been visiting this musuem almost every year but before hurricane Ike came it was one of the best aviation museums I have ever been to. When the airplanes got destroyed only 15 airplanes are there. Before Hurricane Ike there was 30 and it was very interesting. The airplane rides are great.

Awesome planes on display. The fact that many of them are flightworthy makes it even better. Not much for building decor, but, hey, it is basically a well maintained hanger! Would loved to have wandered through the roped off area in the back, some interesting looking pieces there. Unfortunately, did not have the time to take a flight in one... More

I recommend it for Memorial day or Veteran's day. Good family fun, get your Patriotic... More

Go back in time and see vintage planes. Very interesting museum. You can actually take a ride on many of the planes if you reserve in advance.

This is a well thought out museum with a great collection of aircraft from various ages. We really enjoyed the time we were able to spend here. Would be a great place for children.

What a wonderful learning experience for all young people to see in order to understand how and why we live in this free country! Many of these aircraft helped win our freedom and seeing them helps youngsters to see things they don't teach in schools any longer.

Looking at all the old planes was interesting. It didn't take us very long about 30 minutes. It was a welcoming break from the heat.
