Lots of Vintage, restored and flying aircraft. A choice of several options to fly one of the War Birds with an advanced reservation. You won't be disappointed!

Well laid out museum with some interesting aircraft. Having seen pictures of it after the hurricane I'm amazed it's back

I think my husband and son could have spent all day looking at vintage planes and its history. I enjoyed the museum for about an hour and was ready to sit and people watch while they continued looking and reading every detail of everything in the building. You can even book a flight in a vintage plane.

Museum has lots of old airplanes and helicopters. They've all been very nicely restored. You can get very close to view them. Our event also included a bbq buffet that was excellent. Didn't know tha museum existed but glad our conference held an evening event there. It was well worth the visit. They also have a good size gift shop... More

Wow!!!!!!!!!! The inventory of WWII thru Vietnam aircraft was awesome. The only drawback is that you couldn't touch anything.

Much better than we could imagine. Great assortment of planes - many still operational. We learned a lot from this experience. Very reasonable price.

Unfortunately they are still recovering from a hurricane several 7years ago but everything is coming together. great restorations in progress, several complete and ready to fly. Up close and personal with most of them withing inches of your face. Obviously a labor of love for the volunteers working there. I'd love to see the PBY-5 when it's restored. I hope... More

Small airplane museum close to Moody gardens. Staff were friendly. Maintenance workers were working on planes while we walked around but were eager to answer any questions.
