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

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.

Contained within the USAF Museum, this attraction highlights the aviation achievements of the greatest military and civilian aviators. The area is well laid out with simulators adding to the attraction. Worth looking in on.

The Hall of Fame is housed inside the Air Force Museum. It had some interactive things for the kids to do, such as a mock up of an air traffic control tower. A space suit where you can take pictures. Interesting!
