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

Great for those who love war airplanes. The restoration on these planes is ongoing in front of you. They offer rides on a few of them. They suffered a lot of hurricane damage and are still recovering from it. All volunteers.

This is a great museum to visit with the family when staying next door at Moody Gardens. The children enjoyed all the great looking planes and the husband enjoyed all the history behind these great planes.

Lots of prop aircraft from WWII through Vietnam. Many are in flying condition. They include a B-17, P-47, B-25, A-26, and many others. A PBY still shows some hurricane damage. Also lots of nose art and a few ground vehicles. Large gift shop and clean restrooms.

Mt Dad was RAF ground crew so I found this very engaging. You look at some of the exhibits, especially the gun turrets and think 'how could, how did they?'. Museum was damaged by Hurricane Ike so needs support.

If you are interested in aviation history, particularly WWII and want to know how it felt to be the first time in a biplane or one of the other vintage planes you should book a flight experience there. Beautifully refurbished planes are on display and the experienced pilots take you on a beautiful ride around Galveston. Well worth every dollar!

We enjoyed the exhibits. Having staff around who could answer questions would have been helpful. The hangar was very spacious and organized.

This was a wonderful place for connecting two generations. Our grandpa was able to tell about what he experienced flying in these machines to the younger generation who needed to know and by being able to see the airplanes it helped them understand about a previous time period and it helped them develop a deeper respect for a previous generation...
