“off we go into the wild blue yonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Museums usually just display stuff, This place ties each of the aircraft displayed to an era and the people involved. A can't miss experience if you are an airplane fan

“We had a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

So many aircraft to see... so little time. Bring your walking shoes & sense of awe! I went both before the shuttle & after the shuttle came to rest there - it was just amazing to be able to stand close enough to touch the craft that had flown so many missions. I could go back again & again.

“a must”

great place for Imax movies. makes a nice day experience to tour the museum & then take in a great movie. We saw Batman & Harry Potter movies & it was worth the extra cost.

“What an amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We love this place, it's always first on our list to take visitors and they are all "gob-smacked" - everything in here is just jaw dropping. They have wonderful events too, such as Halloween with everyone in costume the children love thins like storm ship troopers wondering around along with R2D2, games, crafts etc. Not forgetting the IMAX theatre - don't miss this place!
