None of the displays work, not that clean, expensive, biggest waste of money you can have more fun looking at the free airplanes at air power park

Unfortunately a lot of the exhibits were down (flight simulators), which is a common trend amongst museums of this nature. Overall though the quality and content of the museum was very impressive and kept us busy for several hours. It was great to see the Yankee Clipper and Origin next to one another for a great size comparison. If anything,... More

We purposely extended our vacation a day to come here....the kids are very disappointed! !! Most of the interactive exhibits are not working...the simulators are the same thing you can do at any state fair! There is a better one for us to attend where we live in Oklahoma! !!

I remember going there before when I was much younger on a school field trip. It was a lot of fun... back then. Many of the other interesting exhibits were gone. They were doing construction on a new area and, the area that wasn't under construction many of the exhibits were non functioning. So you paid to look at planes.... More

We are so glad we took the time to visit this place when we were back in town . My husband was excited to see that the F4 was still in the museum . He loaded the missiles on the F4 (that is hanging from the roof ), many years ago when he was still in the Air Force .... More

We took our two young boys here, and they not only loved every minute but learned a few things too. The whole setting is impressive because their are planes suspended everywhere you look, and the exhibits are interactive. The Apollo 12 command module is on display and very interesting to see up close. Real planes you can walk into and... More

It has an I-Max movie theater. There are a lot of hands on activities for kids. We really liked the trip to Mars with lot of visual and sound effects. It felt so real that one of my relatives panicked a little when the rocket took off. There is a fee but it is low. There is a free parking... More

We loved this museum because the was so much to do and see. We look forward to going again. It was amazing how many airplanes and helicopters are on display. We especially liked the flight simulators and the gentleman who did the science demonstrations.
