“Great air/space museum, get a tour from a guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

I took my parents and 12 year old son to tour your museum yesterday. We looked forward to a chance to wander through the museum and the air park.

We were met by Gus, who gave us a GREAT tour, customized for our interests and time availability. Gus was an excellent docent – very informative, great stories, wonderful guide. Well beyond our expectations. There's the museum you start in, and with a guide/docent you can also tour a plane and the hangar with the Peacekeeper missile bunker, both are recommended. And missiles and planes to see in the airpark.

You do need to call them in advance to arrange entry to the base unless you are military.

“Very cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2009

This place is really cool. My husband's family and mine have been in Colorado for over 100 years so it was so cool to see the old airport they use to talk about. The "model" air craft in back are awesome!! Lots of neat flying history. Highly recommend it.

“very enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2005

We enjoyed our visit to the Peterson AFB air & space museum. There is a small museum with neat displays plus outside there are large, real airplanes and rockets from around the world! The museum is free, they are closed on Sun & Mon. We enjoyed our visit!!!
