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

We stopped in while traveling through Fargo even though we have been to several air museums across the country. The Fargo museum is small compared to others, but has some interesting displays.

This was a quick visit with some interesting planes but you can see the whole thing in about 30 minutes. It's a self touring type of a place. However, that being said, it is a great place for veterans and those interested in the history of planes.

I understand they were setting up for a wedding. However, there was only one helicopter for my kids to play on. Super disappointed. Unable to touch anything other than the one helicopter. I felt like we were funding someone else's flight club. Would definitely not recommend, especially to families with children.

I'm an aviation enthusiast, and enjoyed this small museum. There are two hangars with a variety of restored aircraft and educational displays. There is also a good sized gift shop and a fairly large aviation library. For only $8, this is a winner.

We brought our son here for his birthday and he loved it. The museum has a couple of airplanes that guest can go into, making it interactive and fun.
