This museum of aviation history is built on a site where it was made. The collection is astounding. It walks you through the real history of aviation and the people who made it. It is a great place for families, flight aficionados and the young and old alike. Superlatives fall short of describing this facility. A must for visitors in... More

Having been to both the Smithsonian Air and Space Museums in Washington/Virginia I have to admit that this museum was impressive. Especially the WWI and WWII sections as well as the accessible Concord and Airforce 1 planes.

There is all kinds of history here with history dating back to the early flight of the Wright Brothers to Space Exhibits. They even have John F Kennedy's Air Force One, replica of the Space Shuttle and a couple of pieces of Amelia Earhart's plane. We spend several hours here. I will go back.

Lots of airplanes and great exhibits. Old and new airplanes of all sorts and a lot of Boeing and aerospace history. This is one of the best Aviation museums in the United States and well worth going to.
