It was interesting, seemed small at first, but we were there for 3 hours and still didn't see everything. My 5 yr old son, 11 year old daughter and my husband and I all enjoyed it. We want to go back another time and finish seeing what we missed this time. The only downfall is the price. For 2 kids,... More

I am glad I went. The planes and the history was interesting. And my children were able to go on the simulator. But once was enough. I wouldn't go back to visit.

We go here 2 to 3 times a year. We live a little over an hour away. My son loves airplanes. There are so many planes to see and learn about. The staff are very kind and educated about the exhibits. There are planes from many different wars. They also have hands on exhibits, a few rides for younger kiddos,... More

A must visit even if you only have a passing interest in vintage airplanes. The museum will catch your interest and keep it. A ton of displays and numerous interactive activities. Fun for the whole family. The second campus where renovations are ongoing is great. There are open-cockpit bi-plane rides. My son was able to talk a bit with the... More

It was more fun than I thought it would be. There were rides, history, hands on fun things to do and interesting movies. Great for kids, parents and grandparents alike.

Took my grandson here for a day trip. He lived in New York and has seen lots if stuff. He said the rides are better than Coney Island. That's saying a lot! Great rides and aviation items if historical importance.

We took a road trip based on our 5 year old's suggestion.... Glad we did! A lot more than just airplanes and a lot to keep the kids interested AND adults occupied. There was a special theme going on called "Popology" during our visit, based on how technology has evolved throughout the years. Very cool! Also, a special visit from... More
