Was really excited about going to the museum, but was extremely disappointed upon arriving. The staff member working the front desk was more interested in talking to another staff member than taking my admittance fee of $10. The $10 admittance fee is also way too much for you will see. None of the simulators were operational during my visit. There... More

Fairly easy location to get to at Love Field. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the aircraft on display. We liked reading the history of commercial aviation and really enjoyed the viewing the history of aviation in military. Everything from the space capsule to the pancake to the SR 71 jet engine was well presented. Definitely worth the... More

Every so often the museum brings in World Warn II airplanes and offers flights around Dallas. You get a feel for the flying machines of 70+ years ago. Shake rattle and roll is a favorite term of music but I'll bet it originated from flying on those military flights of yesteryear. The experience of flying on these ancient aircraft gives... More

Great for aviation buffs who enjoy seeing historic and futuristic aviation exhibits. From first flight to space travel with an opportunity to walk in and around full size aircraft. Great resorations and historical exhibits.

It can take several hours to get through this museum and it covers both military and commercial flight. A highlight is the Southwest Airlines displays which you can go in and out of. Also a cockpit of an SR-71.

Located just off Love Field, it is somewhat confusing to get to. They have a small collection aThud, a T-33, an Apollo capsule, an F-8 and a few more. The entry fee of $10 was really a bit much for what you see. Our docent was a little over-enthusiastic. After seeing the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, it was a... More

A good place to visit while you recover from jet-lag. If you're having a stop over in Dallas, and staying at one of the motels near DFW Airport. This place is next to Dallas Love Field Airport, easily reached by DART train from DFW Airport, then a short bus ride. Look for the Soutwest plane sticking out of the Museum... More

Worth stopping in and spending some time here for a very reasonable price. We spent a few hours and enjoyed it very much. Lots of planes and interesting facts and exhibits. Apollo 7 exhibit was nice and unexpected to see. All the different eras covered with actual items and planes from all times in easy to get around buildings. Plus... More

See the aircraft from the early days of flight up to the Apollo 7 spacecraft. Great for all ages as my 14 yo son and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
