Haven't been there in a while and we just saw an ad on TV that reminded us of what a great attraction it is. Great fun for old and young. World War II history and Space history all in one place. We highly recommend the Air Zoo if you are anywhere in the area. You can buy tickets on line.... More

Visiting the Air Zoo was a delightful experience. My 22 year old grandson accompanied me and we both enjoyed the colorful displays, artwork, and history provided as we toured the building. Also on the property were signs directing us to available rides in an authentic open air bi-plane. We returned later to take advantage of this thrilling opportunity! It was... More

The Air Zoo was more then I had expected. For anybody interested in flight history, and W.W. 2 history, this is the place to learn and see things maybe you didn't hear in school. To stand next to the air craft that was used in battle, makes things very real. It gives you a new respect for those who have... More

I had no idea that I would be thrilled beyond my expectations. More than a museum, more than amusement! Like 5 attractions in one... great for adults, kids, and teens. All indoors with the option of a bi-plane ride for additional cost. Simulators, restoration workshops, historical information, space travel, and much, much more.

I highly recommend going to the zoo plenty to do for the whole family and could spend a couple days there. Don't forget to go to the second... More

This place is AMAZING! We visited on a whim while staying in New Buffalo and we are so glad we did. There is something for everyone. Rides are free, food is good and fairly priced, and the staff is super friendly. I can't say enough! You need to check it out!

We were going to Michigan to pick up my son from camp and this looked like the best attraction. Overall great museum with great planes from many eras. Very well kept. Also good exhibit on the space program. Finally the special exhibit is great to remind parents what the 80's were like and what life is like without a smart... More

My kids love the rides at the Air Zoo. We all enjoy looking at the restored aircraft. Depending on how far you want to get into each item at the museum, you can be there a while and you can learn a lot. My kids also love the tiger exhibit. We find the light up rock wall in the tiger... More
