Visited on a rainy afternoon in August just after school started. The museum was virtually empty which makes me mildly concerned for their future but also made for an extremely easy and fun visit. They have interesting displays on early flight, flight exploration(with some particularly cool stuff on polar expeditions), both world wars, modern aircraft and the space age. The... More

Pick a seat in your very own Southwest jet. Everything from barnstormers to fighter jets to a space capsule.

This was really cool for the whole family. Kids loved it. If you have an interest in planes, if you are a pilot, this would be interesting to you. Fun SWA memorabilia.

Imagine my surprise tripping across this flight museum very unexpectedly! It is surprisingly big, has a lot of planes, including a Southwest 737. You can move as slow or as fast as you wish and the staff/volunteers really seem to love what they do. High recommended!

A surprisingly nice display of planes and plane history. We were here for a company event and enjoyed walking around and looking at the full size planes as well as replica models.

I went during the "Great Heat Wave of 2016", as I had no desire to do any outdoor activities. It's very educational, pretty informative, and has a number of interesting planes on display (including a space capsule, which was my favorite). Gives a pretty good bit of history on flight from the onset to the beginning of consumer travel, to... More

Great pieces of history, informative. Got to go into some WWII planes that were out on the tarmac and that was a lot of fun and eye opening.

You could go through the whole place in an hour or two or if you read everything and watch all the short... More
