My husband and I enjoyed the museum. I like the fact that it wasn't busy when we went and we were able to take our time. Loved the restoration of the old planes

There are some beautiful specimens here, notably their B-17, P-47 Thunderbolt and A-10 Skyraider. It is a huge hangar facility and it is easy to view the pieces. A bargain at $8 as well. I would have liked to have seen more information on the individual aircraft themselves in terms of their particular histories, acquisitions and restorations - just like... More

My son loves to go to air shows and flight museums. We had some extra time in Galveston, so we stopped in. He was very surprised (pleasantly) that there were so many different aircraft at this museum. The staff were very friendly and answered questions and shared some facts about the place. It was a lot of fun!

Went with my cousin, we both enjoyed seeing the planes & being able to remember some of them. This is a very nice working flight museum. Will return on a day they are flying some of the planes, would be great to see & hear them.

Although this is a small museum, it was worth the drive to Galveston, My six year old loved it! He has a love of airplanes, and this just tickled his fancy. I do wish they had something that was a bit interactive with the kids though. Maybe a hands on feature or something. Other than that the planes looked well... More

So well displayed and spotless its hard to think this was a display of war machines. They shined like vintage cars and made you proud of the men and women who used them in the past and take care of them in the present.

Have been a couple of times & never crowded. Tour admission money goes to a worthy cause. Would like for my grandson to be able to go inside a plane maybe?

I visited on February 6; annual maintenance work was in progress on several of the planes that are flown in the summer, including the B-17. The workers were very willing to chat about mechanical details, it is clearly a labor of love. Conversation with them was a fascinating bonus. Look at the American flag on the right as you enter...

Well, what a surprise! Considering how much damage the hurricane made, the contents are really well presented. The Catalina I know was left there and is the most beaten up of all of them but as my Dad flew in one in the war it was my favourite (of course). Shame to hear about the 2 seat Mustang that crashed... More

The Lone Star Museum is recovering from a terrible hit by hurricane Ike. Some planes could not be saved, but they have done a remarkable job restoring the damage to some of the salvageable planes. Others are still being repaired. Rides are also available in a few of the historical planes. I gave a good friend of mine a ride... More
