National Museum of WW II Aviation is great
Jun 2021
The museum is very clean and the staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. Very interesting exhibits, too. Lots more about WW II than just aviation. It is a great place to stop when in Colorado Springs.

Wonderful Experience
Jun 2021 • Couples
We had a wonderful experience at this museum. Lots of interesting information and all of the planes were in amazing condition. We were blown away that they restore all the planes there and that they can all fly. The hanger where they restore the planes was really cool to see as well. Highly recommend visiting this museum!

Guided Tour
Jun 2021
We had an excellent guided tour. Hans did an awesome job of providing a great deal of historical knowledge and enthusiasm while leading the tour. They have a nice collection of planes along with the restoration hanger. My 22 year old son said it was about 40 times better than he expected after the tour was over. It is a great way to spend an afternoon.

This museum far exceeded our expectations.
Jun 2021 • Couples
If you’re a history buff, this museum is a must see. The effort that has been put in is obvious the minute you walk through the door. The placards are filled with details, the artifacts are wonderfully displayed and the planes!!! The planes that are on display have been meticulously cared for. To get up close and personal with machinery that most of us have only seen on TV was a treat. This place far exceeded our expectations. Wear your comfy walking shoes and plan on spending a good amount of time. There is a lot to see.

Great Museum
Jun 2021
For anyone with an interest in military aviation this is a terrific museum. The planes are in great condition and all are in flying condition. The guide was a retired Air Force pilot. The story boards and small artifacts were well done and as an added bonus there was a tour of the Westpac aircraft restoration shops where some miraculous restorations have been done. Highly recommend a visit.

Outstanding Museum
Jun 2021
This is a great collection of military aircraft, primarily from WWII. The collection is in EXCELLENT condition and most aircraft are airworthy and are flown on occasion. This is a wonderful museum, among the top of the list of museums I have seen. In addition, you can see various restoration projects in progress and actually interact with the people doing the work. The head docent gave my group a wonderful tour and was the best I personally have ever seen. I would highly recommend this museum.

Well Done!
Jun 2021
The dedication of the volunteers, and the professional approach to their operation was impressive, and accented by a friendly atmosphere. They restore their own airplanes, and all the airplanes fly. The story boards explaining aviation starting in World War 1 and ending at the end of World War 2 are very well done. There are many artifacts on display. The area where the restorations occur is on the tour as well. I highly recommend a visit here.
