Located within the National Museum of the Air Force, this exhibit hall is now managed by Dayton History and they are doing a good job. In addition to the plaques and exhibition labels for the many individuals who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, there are lots of hands-on areas and explanations of flight principles and other aspects...

I live near Dayton and would pass by the Hall of Fame to tour the Airfare Museum - What a fool I was. Don't pass this up. Great history, space suit for photo op, etc.

If you are a hardware junkie for aviation history, the USAF Museum is the place to go. An amazing collection of aircraft, missiles and other aviation history. Many programs for family and children too.

I find it odd, that this has it's own listing since it's inside the Air Force museum, but this is definitely a hidden treasure. We didn't explore it until recently and I'm glad we did. They have many interactive exhibits and a lot of cool things that I didn't know about. Overall a pretty cool place.

A DISMAL AND DREARY DAY IN OCTOBER We had been to the USAF Museum several times and decided we'd try something new in Dayton, so we looked up "Things to Do" and found this. Well, I didn't get the address, since I figured there would be big Brown History/Culture Signs along the highway to guide us. Well, I was right... More

This place is fantastic!! Not only shows the history of aviation, but has numerous other displays. You could spend a week and probably not see everything. Definitely a must on any trip to Dayton!!

This museum is inside the Museum of the Air Force at WPAFB. It is free. It is also a stop on the Aviation Trail (get your free passport at the Museum's information desk and have it stamped here. You need 7 stamps to get a Wilbear Teddy Bear.) Excellent displays about aviation and plaques honoring HoF members. Don't miss the... More
