Great place for all ages

Took my son and he really enjoyed the time there. Wants to go again. Parking is easy unless it is very busy, there is an indoor cafeteria to buy food.

The museum houses very pristine and outstanding pieces of aviation history. All exhibits are well preserved and maintained. It houses a copy of one of the first carbon-fibre business aircraft the Lear-fan, together with the rather extraordinary flying pan-cake from the late 40.ties. Apollo 7 and a well maintained suite of vintage aircraft as well as some examples of famous... More

If you love airplanes and aerospace history, this is the place for you. Run by some of the kindest, most helpful folks in the state, the Frontiers of Flight Museum is a winner. This place is especially good for smaller children who like airplanes. The Southwest airplane bursting through the window is the best attraction. I would love to see... More

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.
