This is part of the US Air Force Museum that many, in the interest of time, bypass. That's unfortunate, because there is a lot of history in there that presents stories of aviation's greats. There are also numerous involvement devices that are superb for older youngsters and especially teens. While visiting the Air Force Museum allow a half-hour or so... More

This was another hall tucked in the AF museum. Full of school kids when we visited. It did have a lot of information on pilots and astronauts as well as "firsts". Took us roughly 30 minutes to see everything in this area.

I especially liked the Presidential planes and WWII exhibits, visited with my son and my daughter in law, and was very interested in exhibit on the Philippines as my daughter in law is from there.

My husband wanted to visit the National Aviation Hall of Fame & the National Museum of the US Air Force, so I tagged along. I am more of an art museum type of person, but I found both of these museums very interesting. When you enter, you actually start out in the National Aviation Hall of Fame where you are... More

Been to this exemplary aviation museum multiple times; taking visiting family members and friends to see and experience the evolution of flight and military applications. This place is huge and is getting even bigger. While newer sections are being constructed, be aware that a free bus shuttle will scoot you from the main museum to a couple of hangers that... More

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.
