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

I have to admit it was not my idea to go to this museum. My husband and son, both being mechanical engineers, wanted to go. I decided to tag along at the last minute. I am so happy that I did! This place is a real gem with a wonderful staff-- many of them volunteers! It doesn't matter what your... More

This is part of a bigger must see museum. If you have time it is a good little side trip but not a main attraction the Aircraft in the adjoining museum.
