A nice way to spend a couple of hours out of the summer heat. There are a lot of model planes, full size planes, engines, seats etc. There are numerous short video presentations that are well done and informative. My daughter who teaches 1st grade has brought multiple classes there for morning field trips and tells me that the boys... More

This is a great place to take the kids (young) when its really hot. The exhibits are really interesting although they could be a little more interactive with visitors in my mind. They is a play park for young kids which is a great way to get them to burn off energy. The food offering is poor. The days they... More

This was a nice museum with some very interesting flight history and displays. We really enjoyed the Apollo 7 display. Great way to spend a hot or rainy day.

About 20 Sr. Adults from our church enjoyed an informative morning at this well organized museum and flight exhibits. The volunteers made us feel welcome and spent time giving information on many of the exhibits. The consensus of the group was that it was a very worthwhile outing.

This was a fun place for my small kids to visit. They enjoyed all the planes and some they even let you sit in. It had a great play area in the back for the kids- they didn't want to leave. Prices weren't too bad either and pretty easy to get to.

If you are into aviation and/or the history of aviation, then this place is really great. The layout is conducive to exploration by patrons of all ages. The only thing I would think that could make this place greater, is if the planes had more interactivity. A flight simulator or some cockpit that you could actually sit in would have... More

Numerous vintage aircraft meticulously restored. This is an excellent visit for young and old. Located on East side of Love Field the airport is a Dallas landmark since 1917 was a flight training field .
