this was an impromptu stop and unless you have time to spend, i wouldn't make an out of the way effort to stop. the museum was nice and unique, good narration and friendly staff, but it appears that they still need a lot more funding...More

Some great history here, the Constellation is a neat plane with cool history and ties to Howard Hughes of course. Really cool look back to what flying was like before everything was hidden behind plastic panels too. And I've never seen it crowded. The vintage...More

For an airline nut, you must go just so you can see the Constellation, the queen of the air, the most beautiful airplane ever designed. And.... you get to go through it. Remember that this is a working facility, with many "in process" displays, so...More

Excellent museum about the airline industry. Just being able to go inside a constellation is worth the admission price.

Nice museum with displays from mostly mid-Century and later. The museum has a strong TWA bent but there are displays of things from a few other airlines. The highlight for me was being able to walk through a Lockheed Constellation and a Martin 404. The...More

We just DJ'd a wedding event for a family member here. It was by far the coolest venue we've ever been to! It incorporated their love of flying, but was interesting and photographer's dream.

The guide was knowledgeable and very interesting. There is a TWA constellation in the hanger that you get to go through, as well as another large plane. We also watched a short film about aviation in Kansas City. The museum is located at the downtown...More

Jeanine C
I have gone twice to see this museum and neither time did I see any directions as to where to go or where to part etc. Is it in the old, original terminal building? where are the airplanes that we might get to see? is it a long walk to the airplane hangars? I am 86 yrs. old and want to see this very much. I have COPD and cannot walk very far (20 ft. at best) so need to know if there are wheelchairs available or are there benches where I can rest for a few minutes before I go on?
