4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The variety of aircraft and the multiple modes of transportation available for viewing are very impressive. This is a great attraction in the Galveston area.

“Airplane Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My son and husband enjoyed this. They have done a lot of work since Hurricane Ike. They have some great planes and tidbits of history. Unfortunately, there was no one that seemed eager to answer questions.

“Lot of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Much of this is still suffering from the hurricane but there is a lot of aeronautical history here. Would have liked to been able to see inside some of the bombers like I have at other museums but very informative visit.

“Airplane garage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We certainly enjoyed our visit to this place, most of the planes are in working condition (or being worked on to get them flight-ready). That makes it special. Big tribute to WWII, and much info about "nose art" on bombers that we didn't know/had never seen before. Worth it for us.
