This is a great little air museum located at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, MN with easy and short access from I-494. They don't have an extensive collection of aircraft, but what they don't have in quantity they make up for in quality and the knowledge of their volunteers. Unlike most museums, Wings of the North has a team of volunteer docents that guides you through the memorabilia collection inside and then then aircraft collection in the hangar. It's the volunteers that makes this such a unique experience. Their knowledge is exceptional and they take the time to answer all of your questions. The collection includes the Stearman in which President George HW Bush (41) earned his wings while he was a naval flight cadet in Minneapolis. If you're visiting the Twin Cities and are into aviation, I also highly recommend the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Chapter Museum at Flemming Field in South St. Paul. Also the Northwest Airlines History Center has a wonderful little museum that's run by several of the NWA retirees. This is located in the Crowne Plaza Hotel on 34th Ave just off I-494 from MSP airport. And finally, if you're up for a drive, the Fagan Fighters Museum in Granite Falls, MN is simply top-notch. This is a very enjoyable 2-hour drive from the Twin Cities through the heart of Minnesota farm country.

My family and I visited the museum today. We had a wonderful time. The staff is super kind, the tour guide was really nice and knowledgeable of what he was presenting. The aircrafts were awesome. A lot of good history. My father (airplane lover) loved it! My six years old son as well! It was a nice family experience.

It is an absolutely incredible museum! Our family all had such a good time there - they were also VERY patient with our 2-year-old daughter as she is full of curiosity (but also full of respect, thankfully!) Their gift shop is amazing and the book store is a gem I could spend hours in all by myself.

Ed Koch was the Docent on our group tour - very affable. It was a good facility with far more displays than I imagined. Their aircraft displays, although modest, were fantastic.

A nice facility, with knowledgeable tour guides, who know about the aircraft and the locals who were involved in WWII.
