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.

My husband and I went to see this museum, we have gone to air plane museums since our son was small and still goes. We really liked the museum it has a nice exhibition of planes. They have to hangars and some planes outside the museum. They did have a Calla dinner in the evening so they were getting ready for that so gift shop wasn't open but we still liked the museum, and would love to go again

Aviation museums are tough. If you want to have a decent sized collection you either need a massive building or you keep the birds outside where they’ll deteriorate. Given this is in the middle of a Dorset populated state, it’s a good museum.

The museum has free parking. The basic admission price is $10 and there are several discounts available (student/military/veteran/senior/children). Children under 4 years are free. It is not vary large but there are several (mostly World War II) aircraft on display. There are several videos available on a constant loop and other historical information. There is a gift shop. It is worth a visit if you are in town.

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.

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.

There were a LOT of interesting exhibits here. If you like old airplanes, you need visit.
The staff are quite knowledgeable and friendly.
I got there very early and ran ahead of the crowd. It was was great to see so many airworthy aircraft in one place.

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.

The lady at the desk was very nice but it fell apart quickly after that. My sons did not realize they were not allowed to touch anything, neither were we as most things are not roped off, in the place and went to a helicopter and tryed to pick up a helmet on the seat. Before I could say anything some guy ran up to them, grabbed them by the shoulder and told them to "use your heads, your in a museum". Even without the jerk being there we may have spent ten minutes as it is very small, noninteractive and expensive. Upon exressing my displeasure as we left I was told "at least my money went to a good cause". Id suggest not taking any kids who like to do more than hold their hands behind their backs. We went down the road to Bonanzaville were we paid less, got to enter a huge cargo plane as well as tour a fantastic place, and they got to touch some stuff.

Fargo Air Museum is easily reached, because Fargo and West Fargo have a grid layout. The museum is located in one hangar with about 13 aircraft. It is enhanced by WWII posters, memorabilia, and uniform displays. The staff are friendly, informative, and chatty. A Navy veteran of WWII was working on displays and talked with us over cups of coffee. A small gift shop offers books, videos, and souvenir clothing.
