About
Located just off I-29 interstate, The Fargo Air Museum is an easily accessed pet friendly, must-stop location. North Dakota's premiere aviation destination, the Fargo Air Museum's dual hangars are home to aircraft of all eras - from a modern unmanned reconnaissance drone to the "most accurate recreation of a Wright Brothers' flyer the Smithsonian Institute has ever seen." A "flying" museum, many of the airplanes occasionally take to the sky, a unique feature not found in the vast majority of the nation's static-display air museums. More than just a simple place to display its many aircraft, military memorabilia and exhibits, the Fargo Air Museum also houses one of the midwest's largest Aviation libraries. In addition, the museum hosts educational day-camps, speakers and seminars for flight fans of all ages to enjoy. The Fargo Air Museum is a fantastic choice for a unique venue for corporate & private events and has quickly become a local favorite for hosting wedding ceremonies and receptions. Please email for event rental information. Located across the street from the Fargodome, the museum is also surrounded with dining opportunities and is conveniently just moments away from the Fargo's Hector International Airport.

The number of exhibits in the museum was very few and they still charged the full admission. They mention some events they had but if they didn't have all the planes why not say closed? They wouldn't let us into the flight simulator because they were only open a few hours a day. They had no eating options

Neither myself or my boyfriend are into planes or the air force but we decided to visit this museum to get our culture on! And we were not disappointed. It was filled with cool planes and facts about where they were when they were active. They had a 2nd hangar filled with more planes. Some dating back to the 1800's. It was a stop worthwhile in my opinion.

Nice museum, not too big. There are places to sit if you aren't interested in the very fine details like your partner may be.

Many different kinds of aircraft and stories. You could spend a lot of time here if you were into aviation and it's history.

The founders did a good job of getting this museum together. It's not cheap, but I expect there is a lot of cost in insuring the planes and keeping up the place. It's not overpriced.

We chose a time before a big event. There were planes everywhere.The attendant let us know this ahead of time. I took the time to read about the bomber pilots during WWII and the several Eagle projects that were on display. Several Vietnam Veterans were setting up their pieces of history for the week-long tribute.

Nice little museum with exhibits spread across two hangers. Interesting displays with information about some of the pilots and personalities behind the planes. Just left us a little underwhelmed though - no wow factor.

Small museum with two hangars. Mostly airplanes, and a small library upstairs. Takes about 45 minutes to go through unless you really love airplanes then you might want to spend more time here. They even have a B-25. I’m not a big plane aficionado, but I enjoyed it. There’s even a small area for children to sit and play while Mom and dad look at the planes.

Good trip. We arrived at approximately 1 pm and made our way inside to buy our tickets. There were two buildings that were adjacent to each other, that were full of planes and artifacts. In front of each plane was an educational plaque, detailing the significance and history of each plane. The plaques were very detailed and provided a lot of information about each plane that was out for display. There were also several mini planes that allowed children to climb inside them, making for a great photo opportunity.

Tip: I recommend spending 2 hours here if you truly want to see everything.

The museum is filled to the brim with everything avionics. Planes, jets, helicopters, and more. There is lots to see and read about and learn. The staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. There are lots of informative boards to provide you with history and information about the planes. A great stop for anyone to enjoy learning about planes and history.

Intended to visit with the friends - to find out it was closed without explanation. Work time was posted at the door, which were closed. There were couple of other people turning around on the parking lot and seeing it was closed without explanation. Forget it. They got one shot to visit and they failed it.

Once again I drug my husband to another museum. He can honestly say that he really enjoyed our visit. There’s something for everybody. I liked the various planes and models. My husband liked the hands on displays and really liked the different vehicles. Museum staff super helpful and willing to answer any questions. Great visit
