I would say no fewer than 6 things were roped off and inaccessible. Aside from that it was a nice, quick museum to go through. A must for the aviation enthusiast.

We went late morning and spent about 1.5 hours walking around looking at planes and playing in the kids area. Huge collection of planes and ability to look at them from many angles - loved it!

Our kiddo is very into airplanes, so we actually took him and some friends here for his birthday. The planes are great, the simulator was a hit, and love the open space of the hanger. Wish you could get in more of the planes though.

This was a neat stop in Denver. Everything is well laid out, the volunteer staff members were very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The DaVinci movie was terrible, but we did learn some about his life. The exhibit itself was good.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites Cherry Creek, which was about a minute 15 drive from the museum.
