Take the Time

This is a small section of the larger Museum, but it is worth the walk through. I definitely enjoyed the extra time I spent there.

Located inside the huge National Museum of the US Air Force, this small attraction is moderately interesting unless you're a real aviation buff. The interactive displays for kids don't always work and the staff can be churlish. They are not part of the excellent museum staff and volunteers. HOWEVER, do not miss the Air Force Museum itself. It is a... More

There is so much that can be learned from our aviation pioneers. Just reading the small plaques attached to each person’s picture is filled with information about the person and very enlightening. I definitely ran out of time before I was able to complete my walk thru the museum. I will definitely plan on spending more time during my next... More

Part of the Museum of the US Air Force. Definitely walk through it - it's a small room compared with the others in the Museum - while you are at the museum. It is not a "separate" trip, in my opinion

Basically, this area of the AF museum is primarily for people seeking information about specific luminaries in aviation. I would definitely like to spend more time here, time permitting. Worth walking through for the average visitor, but not worth the time compared to all else that is around

Visited this place with friends and family. Won't take much time to visit this place alone, but since this is inside the Wright-Patterson Air Force Museum, you will need at least 5-6 hours to cover the whole museum.

Tucked in the AF Museum is a tribute to the Milestones of flight. The stories of mans ascent to the skies is told in artifacts, pictures, and tableaus. These are the best of te best of aviation and space travel.

The aviation Hall of Fame not only honors heroes and aviation achievements but also had several interactive displays that children seemed to be very much enjoying. With lots of places to sit and look at displays or watch movies it made for a spot to rest after touring much of the other museum.

The Aviation Hall of Fame is a stop on the Dayton Aviation Trail many people miss because they walk right by the doors. That's because the Hall is located inside the much larger National Museum of the US Air Force and people rush past the Bob Hope exhibit between two major display buildings and don't notice on the map or...

Birth Place of Aviation! Best in the Nation. I've been to Wright Pat and the Aviation Hall of Fame a hundred times. Always find something new and interesting to see. Take the family! Something for everyone and it's educational too!
