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.

Liked the recognition given to so many who added to the significance of aviation plus the hands on displays which the grandkids really enjoyed

This is inside the Air force museum, not sure why it is listed separately. very good if you're into the people behind the planes.

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!

I can't say enough about this museum! As an aviation buff, I loved walking around all the HUGE planes and being awed by it all. Although it's not the real thing, the space shuttle trainer I've very cool. Another favorite is the Red Bull capsule that Felix Baumgartener floated out of from the edge of space. A truly must see...

Give yourself plenty of time to explore this museum - perfect visit on a very hot day as there is lots to see inside air conditioning. There are sites outside, as well as omni max theater.

Definitely worth a visit. When I lived in the area we always took visitors there and everyone enjoyed it. The kids always looked forward to the IMAX theater and the dehydrated ice cream. I will definitely visit again.

A nice side room at the USAF museum. It has hands on experiments to teach kids the science behind flight and brief bios of many famous pilots.
