Not Big But Worth a Visit

The tour of the museum, with accompanying audio guide, took about an hour. Fantastic airplanes, well presented descriptive panels and wonderful people that run the place.

This is a small slice of life and history. But, the really spectacular gem is attending the monthly talks - which are A+++ Just Fantastic!!!

We were here for a friend's Master's graduation celebration. You can rent this place out for private functions. It is really neat. It is small, but there is a lot of history about the WACO company, and models of the airplanes in the hangar. Our friend who works in the Air Force has his pilot's license, so he was able... More

This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the time. Nancy (curator) was very nice, and took a lot of time to explain the various planes at their facility. The hangars are small, but the planes are absolutely beautiful. An inexpensive and fun activity for anyone looking for something different.

They offer an included audio tour that lasts approximately 30 minutes over 15 points of interest. They have an annual fly in in September which looks to draw large crowds. There is a free flight simulator as well. Overall... More

This small museum dedicated mostly to the Waco (rhymes with "taco") planes built before WWII is a must see for local airplane enthusiasts. It is small but the guides are knowledge and on the day we were there he was exclusively our own. It was interesting to the plane-but teen and his father too

There are two small hangers with beautifully restored vintage aircraft and a number of exhibits that cover the early days of aviation, during which the WACO company played an important role. There are a few interactive exhibits [not working the day we visited, however], as well as a factory exhibit to give perspective on how these aircraft were produced. It's... More

Actually we went up in Sept of 2014 but that wasn't an option from the drop down on the review. I'm female, older, and love planes, trains, and automobiles. 1st on my bucket list was a ride in an open cockpit biplane. My daughter went with me and it was worth every penny! She lived about a mile from Waco... More

This is a must visit if you are interested in airplanes or history.. This is good for all ages and some exhibits are hands on. They also have a fly-in and offer Waco Airplane Bi plane rides.... If you are in the area stop it..you can spend 1 hr or 3hrs.

For Waco or Biplane enthusiasts this is a small focused local museum. They have lectures which are really amazing for this small place. All have been very interesting
