We have visited other aviation museums, so this is compared with a couple really large ones. The museum is nice, worth a ticket as they are a nonprofit and have some nice examples. The problem they have is small real estate. If you go be sure to look at the photos of the damage that hurricane Ike caused in 2008,... More

Loved the very well maintained WWII era aircraft, and most of them are still in flying condition. I would love to have been able to get closer to some of them and look inside. They should have that option as a premium pass, for those willing to pay a little extra. They also have a very nice aviation gift shop... More

For a decent price you get to see these wonderful restored planes from our history. Also note that these are getting restored once again since they were destroyed in the hurricane. The day we arrived they were giving tours through a B17. It was quite an experience to climb through the inside of this plane surrounded by very informative individuals... More

The staff is friendly. Although when first walking in it looks small there is a lot to see.If you like history or planes this is a nice fun activity in Galveston. In the gift shop they have original painting that look amazing. Although small I enjoyed seeing setting the planes and learning the history behind them.

Having heard of this museum for yonks, from American friends, we made our way there after lunch at Joe's Crab Shack. We were the only visitors at the time we were there yesterday afternoon. The contractors rebuilding the roads on the airport were helpful with getting us around the construction to the hangar. The planes are well displayed, if a... More

Loved the museum. Would have loved to see more planes had they been there. All but a small amount were airworthy. Would love to be able to be inside of them, but not allowed. Great for nostalgia.

This is a must see. It was truly amazing to see the restored aircraft and to also read the history of some of the planes and their crews. There are also some amazing models inside the hangar and gift shop.

Well worth a visit for those interested in aviation. Many great vintage aircraft on display, including a gorgeous Continental Airlines DC-3. Also offer Texan, Stearman and Muscalero rides - check their website or give them a call before visiting if you're interested. Several military veterans and aviation buffs were visiting while we were there - had a nice chat with... More
