A "must go" place for the town especially if most of your group are male. You could learn the aircrafts history here. Really impressive

Visit before they move to Houston! Sadly hurricane Ike in 2008 caused huge damage to the planes and other artifacts, and the owners clearly do not wish to risk a repeat performance. Exhibits include an immaculate B24 of the type used by the Doolittle Raiders. The collection of nose art is captivating.

I was there on a rainy day during mid week. Which was fine as all of the planes are housed in 2 hangers. With the exception of the people doing the annual inspection of the B-17 (to keep it flying), I had it all to myself. It was great to be so close to so many historic planes

We have been here several times. My husband enjoys the vintage aircraft and reading about WWII history of the Air corps and Navy airmen. We look forward to visiting this museum when we can to see what is new.

My husband and I really enjoyed the Flight museum. It has approximately 20 planes from the WW"II, Korea, Vietnam era. Very Interesting- It has placards about the planes and plane art. It was a nice way to spend a rainy, windy afternoon in Galveston Island. They have had a nice recovery from Hurricane Ike- thanks to volunteers and the Sea... More

This was an average museum. I have been to other museums with more planes. The gift shop needed more items to purchase. It looks like this museum will continue to grow and I look forward to seeing what they can add to it.

I heard about it and wanted to see for myself on what it was like. The museum was reasonable priced, senior discounts and easy to walk around. The planes were fun to see up close and the history was great! A must see.

Great place to spend some time. If you love vintage aircraft this is the place. If you have the time and the money to book a flight on a vintage plane even better. It is located next to Moody Gardens so it is easy to make a day of it, if you are visiting and can afford the Moody Gardens... More

1. Bottom Line Up Front. As a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer and history enthusiast, I have had the privilege of visiting quite a few museums of this type all across the United States and abroad so my expectations are typically very high. I was not disappointed; all of the aircraft are in pristine condition and most (if not all)... More
