Not a plane person myself, but take your husband there and he won't mind you shopping as much! Good collection of planes and great restoration after the 2008 flood. They are to be commended!

This is a must-see if you're into aviation. Even though my family and I are not, we still enjoyed our visit. There are many different planes on display. Don't expect to take too long in this museum.

This is a must see if you're into Aviation history. This museum is still a work in progress and it is very interesting to see some of the restorations still taking place. Plenty of aircraft to view. My only one complaint is that you can't walk right up to the servicemen/women flags (they're on a wall) in order to view... More

This is a nice smaller museum that has some interesting aircraft. Doesn't take long to go thru but is worth the visit if aeronautics is an interest.

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. It is a self-guided museum, with placards providing significant historical information about each of the craft showcased. This is an enjoyable excursion for both adults and kids, because of the close proximity of these great machines. A tour takes less than an hour and... More

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
