This museum has several military planes and one commercial plane. Most of them have been restored, and a few others are in the process of being restored. There are also a few jeeps, and a small collection of nose art. This museum is smaller than I thought it would be, and admission may be a little steep for the size.... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this museum bit it felt run down and it didn't feel energetic, some exhibits are not signed and there is no staff to answer questions. The Gift Shop is not well presented and feels empty and outdated.

I wanted to visit to see the B17 bomber but sadly it was out for a show. The other exhibits are worth a visit if you are in the area but I wished I had called ahead to check as to which aircraft were on display. However is still had some very interesting exhibits and I look forward to seeing... More

A wonderful collection of warbirds. The B-17G Flying Fortress justifies the visit and it is a joy to see one of the last airworthy exemplars of this historic aircraft. However there are many other notable aircraft so you get to see a lot of aviation history for the very reasonable US$10 admission. The gift shop is very well appointed. Don't... More

My wife and sister gave me a birthday gift of a flight on the T-6 Texan which is a type of airplane used to train pilots during WWII. The pilot who flew my flight was Carlos who flies corporates jets when he is not flying at Lone Star. He took me on a great trip around the Galveston area and... More

MY family goes here every time we go to the Island. The displays are first class and they are always adding new aircraft. There is much that is in support of the aircraft on display like turrets, guns, etc.

The airplanes were amazing. They were even taking off and landing some of the planes from WW2. Very reasonable prices.

Even if you are not particularly into airplanes, you will still enjoy the history and art presented at the museum. Plus, it's cool to stand near some of these huge war planes. They also have a nice gift shop with flight related memorabilia as well as World War II items.

If you are flight lover then you can enjoyed. I have visited this museum with one of the friend family who love the flight and we all enjoyed the visit. We were able to see many interesting mini flights. Nice to know about different variety of flights. It is in a small place you can see more no of flights.... More
