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.

Great displays.

Enjoyed browsing parts of history as we ended our trip to Fargo. The historical significance and presentation was great. Did not take long to walk thru.

This was a nice small museum. My young children enjoyed some of the hands on aspects, and my older ones enjoyed reading about and seeing some of the planes. It is a bit pricey in that it doesn't take long to walk through, but it was a nice random thing to do as an outing.

Though not large, this museum has a good collection of air worthy and static aircraft that are all in fantastic condition.

I always enjoy seeing aircraft museums as I travel. This one in Fargo is small but has some interesting aircraft type. The reconnaissance drone was particularly interesting. I had actually never seen a drone in person, and it was nice to finally see one. This museum can easily be seen in about 30 minutes, so not a huge chunk of... More

This an interesting place to visit. Most of the aircraft in the museum are still airworthy. Unfortunately a number were away the day we visited. Still what was there was interesting and well presented. The exhibits are also well done. The Minuteman missile just outside the facility is a great photo op. The Duggy, a C-47 painted bright yellow with... More

This is a solid museum. I was most impressed with the 2 or 3 homemade planes that had been donated to the museum, that was something I hadn't seen in other air/space museums.

Great place to learn about the history of planes. I thought it was money well spent and the employees were very nice and helpful. My favorite plane was the Duggy AKA The Smile in the Sky. :) You can actually go inside it as well, which made the experience even better. I learned a lot and my grandparents also enjoyed... More
