I love the fact that you can get really up close and personal with most of the artifacts. My fave is the Braniff exhibit with an extensive collection of Braniff memorabilla

Enjoyable visit to the Frontiers of Flight Museum. The Apollo 7 capsule was very interesting. The hatch was open so you could see inside. Not much room in n there...lol. There there was a wide variety of aircraft from different eras. Worth your time!

What an amazing museum. We were there for a wedding, but I called my husband to bring the kids early because the museum was so cool. They loved the exhibits and all the planes to look at.

Yes, but as in all situations with toddlers, they must be supervised. It is not a place where they can just run and touch everything. There is a very nice play area however just for them.
