Being airplane "geeks" we loved this museum. It is not the "Museum of Flight", but it is interesting looking at how air travel has changed since its inception. The tour was informative and the tour guide was interesting and loved kids and questions. I don't...More

Went to the museum on a Friday when it was open. Nice little collection of objects related to commercial airlines, especially TWA. Enjoyed walking through the Martin 404 and the Lockheed constellation. Shows you how air travel has changed greatly in the past 60 years

A wonderful history of air lines. So educational and fun at the same time. They are closed on Mondays. There is a small admission charge.
