We enjoyed all of the different planes on display, but it would have been enhanced with tour guides.

Like the "guy" stuff of this museum, fascinating to see the photos of the before and after of Ike. Glad they care so for our flight history.

had booked a flight in the P6 Texan as my 50th birthday gift and it was amazing. one of the best experiences of my life. the pilot was Carlos and he gave me a full 45minutes in the plane. The museum was also fabulous, thank goodness for the volunteers and staff for preserving this place and the exhibits. A special... More

The museum has recovered from disastrous storm damage to now present warbirds and service aircraft from the 1940's on.

This a smaller aviation museum but it also offers you the opportunity for flights on vintage WWII aircraft. http://www.lsfm.org/flightexperiences.html The museum is priced at about $8 and is worth the oppportunity to view the restored aircraft. I was gifted a flight on the AT-6 Texan Trainer which was worth every penny. The flight, on a beautiful day, lasted about 40... More

I had an Entertainment Book coupon that granted two-for-one admission and we thought it would be a nice place to visit on a Saturday afternoon. First, it can be a little tricky to find, but if you just follow the signs to Moody Gardens and/or Schlitterbahn, you'll see the signs that lead you to a big, tan metal building (hangar)... More

Finally went to this museum after hearing about it. 8 bucks is what it cost to get to see two hangers full of planes, helicopters, a couple of army jeeps, a Indian Motorcycle, and a 1941 Chevy truck. Not too bad, but was able to go through it pretty fast. I thought it was just me, but two other patrons... More

It was interesting and the personnel were great, but the museum is somewhat small and will be moving soon because of the hurricanes and the damage they caused
