Great display

There were planes there I had not seen at other air and space museums. Great history. My son got to play "practice" landing an F-14 on an aircraft carrier.

We absolutely loved this museum!! We weren't sure if we were going to make it there or not, so glad we did. It is awesome the planes are so cool. My kids had fun doing the simulators (they cost more). We also enjoyed all the great planes on show. This is somewhere everyone should go at least once. Honestly though... More

SO much history! Beautiful displays! Lots for children to learn with. My favorite were the models of old United planes with everybody dressed up and the old airplanes.

My husband, 8 year old daughter and I went here for an afternoon. The value was incredible and we were there for about 2.5 hours. They both did the flight simulator as well and totally loved it. I enjoyed all the stories and the feature on Ameilia Earhart. It was a bit long for my daughter, but from the Star... More

Very nice, interesting, clean, well maintained displays. Good variety, some whimsey. Simulators are not realistic. Motion base simulator is a carnival ride. Controls way too sensitive, PIO unavoidable. Fixed base simulator is much better with a fairly good visual display and a visually interesting stable of aircraft. I could land it. But it's basically just a computer game, no real... More

A nice mixture of different eras of aviation, with a focus on military planes. It had some space exploration exhibits, as well as an X-Wing fighter. It is self guided and you can walk up to and under many of them. You really gain an appreciation for the scale of these planes. Dont forget to finish your tour by going... More

We throughly enjoyed this museum as it was well laid out and displays were informative. The primary exhibits focused on planes vs outer space. While I don't have children I was pleased to see the areas that were set aside for their education and entertainment. My only suggestion would be that they obtain NASA posters that I have seen elsewhere... More

This is a wonderful place to take kiddos! It has planes that they can climb into, sit in the cockpit, push buttons and have a real thrill. It has an interactive educational room for all ages of kids! It also has a Star Wars section to really excite all Star Wars fans! Easy to get to and even easier to... More

This is nice Air Museum that has a great variety of planes. They also do a good job of explaining the history of the former AFB. I also found out that this is where the USAF Academy started. The B--52 out front and the B-1 inside are very impressive. I wish my grandson was along to the the Star Wars... More
