What a great idea but in a tired location with so much unrecognized potential. Dingy and quiet, it does not do justice to the displays and history housed here. That's a shame as it might be easily overlooked. I hope it will expand and improve yet very worth a visit especially to inspire women in aviation.

As a pilot and an aviation enthusiast, I like to visit aviation museums. I like to promote women in aviation as I believe that us men have pushed women out of the cockpit, and frankly, they should be flying as well. That being said, this is a museum which occupies the lounge areas in the smaller Burke airport, and it... More

This museum is one I'd highly recommend for any family to visit. Got a scout or school visit what a great interesting place. If you have a daughter that's the least bit interested in flying or space I'd recommend visiting and even joining the museum. This is one place for a one stop visit along the whole lake front.

My guy, myself, his Mom and sister went here 9/2013 and admission was free. Parking was free. There were not many people there wandering through the museum. The exhibits were interesting. The museum was smaller than other museums inside. The employees were nice and informative. I spoke with a Weatherman there who explained "Lake Effect" snow in the Cleveland OH... More

Too bad if you missed the annual IWASM event: "Corks on the Concourse". This year's theme, "Flying Fiesta," was ¡fun-tástico! As always, there was plenty of food to be had and wines to taste. The auction baskets were packed with a wide variety of quality items, and... whoever won the bid for the leather flight jacket certainly has a special... More

Very interesting museum - take the time to read the stories of the first women pilots and the struggles of them to be taken seriously by NASA during the early space program. The artifacts on display are interesting included a tire from the space shuttle.

I brought my 12-year-old niece and she thought it was fun and educational. I did too, though I wish there had been more stuff for kids to actually do.

I came Here, mainly because it was free. It's just a hallway and a gift shop. But I did enjoy reading about women pilots from the past. There are some planes that you can look at as well. There is also a propeller that looks the same as an obstacle in stage 3 of America Ninja Warrior. Worth a five... More

We only visited this museum because it was free, Even though it had some interesting facts, I am glad I didn't have to pay. It took only about 30 minutes to wander through.

Wiman can be great pilots. As a pilot myself (commercial, multi, instrument), I always looked down on them (as an engineer I looked down at wimmen engineers too) but I've been wrong They were brave and heroic. Many many intersting aspects of flying including the fact that they had no seat belts in those days and pilots and passengers did... More
