Wow. Such dedication to the job by this almost all volunteer group of people to provide a great look into the early days of air warfare. To think the same job is done now by one person in the cockpit of a jet it took a crew of ten to do with four engines. This is a must see when... More

The Lone Star Flight Museum contains dozens of restored and model aircraft from the WWII era.

We were staying a few days in Galveston and I am a big airplane and flying buff. We made sure to visit this attraction. The self guided tour took about 1 hour. They have a broad range of vintage aircraft. Most were from WWII. I think the only jet is a MIG-17. They have a few aircraft in flying condition,... More

I know Galveston is probably not on most UK visitors itinerary but if you are at all interested in aviation then this super museum is a must. There is a good variety of really well preserved flying and non-flying airframes with everything displayed in an easily seen manner. The staff are excellent. When we visited the place was virtually empty... More

They had a very interesting collection. They had several large world war 2 bombers. It was worth the visit. It took about an hour and seniors were $5.00.

If you like vintage aircraft (particularly from World War II), this is the place to come. Absolutely loved it!! There was so much more to see than we expected. They also have a wonderful gift shop.

The museum is small but incredible. The planes are beautiful for lack of a better word. The stories that go along with each are intriguing. I loved the American flag with the flood line from Ike. If you love history, stop in. You won't be disappointed.
