interesting planes

It was very hot outside & would have been better if the air conditioning was working better but they had fans all over. The different aircrafts were very interesting!

This museum highlights the advanced engineering that took place right there, that helped to... More

We had a great guided tour with Walter who is a treasure of information about aviation history especially in the Niagara Falls/Buffalo area. The museum had beautifully restored air planes and helicopters from the early years of aviation right up to the space race. We were especially pleased to see the work of Glenn Curtiss whose museum in Hammondsport is... More

I have to give this small museum high marks. We love everything to do with flight. Even though this museum is not on the level with the Air Force Museum in Ohio, or the U.S Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, it is worth seeing. Here you can see Western New York's contributions to air and space travel. There... More

Western New York has a lot of Aviation History and this museum highlights the many... More

This was an ok little museum in the old summit park mall. The staff was nice and my kids liked the airplane displays. I think it helped we are a military family. It was small and I wouldn't go here to spend the day but it's a fun little side trip if you're out here already.
