For your airplane expert

This is a great visit for either adults or children. Our grandson that is really, really interested in airplanes. We spent hours while he saw every exhibit.

The museum visit was satisfying and fun for kids. Loved the small plane. There are activities for kids too. Plane lovers would definetly enjoy. Gift shop, theatre are some attractions.

This museum is located near the AA campus very close to DFW airport. The museum includes many "hands-on" exhibits and depicts aviation history as well as the history of American Airlines. There is an entire DC-3 within the museum that you may enter. In addition, the theatre shows a very well done "history of aviation" movie. Overall, as an AA... More

Great museum for airline history buffs. Planes / models / many exhibits / hands on. Gift shop movie area, just a good way to spend a few hours. Near DFW airport and within walking distance of AA training and conference center.

If you're an avid and proud American Airlines history buff or just an aviation geek like myself, I would highly recommend checking this museum out! A short film in real older model AA seats starts you off in order for you to get your bearings. (If you've ever sat in those seats before they'll definitely take you back!) Afterwards, you... More

The museum covers the history of American airlines and you follow it through times. It is an interesting museum but you will be through it in an hour or so, but it is much better than spending time at the airport terminal.

This museum concentrates on how American Airlines got to where it is today. (If you want to see an assortment of planes, travel to the Smithsonian Museum (Air & Space Museum Udvar-Hazy at Dulles Airport), or Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (Air & Space Museum) in Dayton.) At the time I visited, they had a display on the USAirways plane that... More

We went today for Museum Day since it was free. Based on my experience, I wouldn't pay to visit the museum and I have no desire to return in the future as I think I've gotten everything out of the museum that I will get. There were several exhibits that were missing (a huge blank space in the Featured Exhibit... More

Went on a Smithsonian Free Day and even then it wasn’t worth the price. They only have 1 plane (a DC-9) and not much else; a small 9/11 Memorial, the history of American Airlines and some small plane models. There is short movie that is OK however they got their physics wrong plus their history is not that accurate either.... More

If you are looking for an aviation museum with a wide variety of aircraft, this isn't it. It is, however, the fascinating history of American Airlines done really well. The story is told through the use of photos, models and other interesting artifacts of the founding and history of the airline. I was especially interested in the display of stewardess... More
