The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force is an extremely enjoying time. There is so much to look at, and if you live close enough, I would advise to come back a couple more times to see everything. It's completely free to tour the museum so don't worry about exhausting yourself to see everything the first time. If you... More

I've lost track of how many visits I've made to the museum. I live three and a half hours away, so it's not like I can just jump in the car and drive across town. Very difficult to see everything in one day, especially if you take your time and really see things. And to top things off, there is... More

My son is 26 now and we had gone last when he was 8. This never gets old and with the new presidential aircraft hanger it is even better. It... More

Enjoyed my visit at the air force museum while visiting the Dayton area! The hangers were massive with great history of all the war planes! Can't wait to return again to see more!

Was a total awesome place. The price is free which was a shocking discovery. Very interesting history of aviation. Small fee for the theater which was a great 3-D film on space travel. I will go back to visit this again. So much to see that it will take more then one day to see it all.

I have teenagers and they all loved going here. My husband and I enjoyed it very much too. It had the biggest airplanes and the best displays. If you like history of the wars and lots of airplanes, you'll love this. Very nice people there to help you too. Its free to get in and its awesome.
