While visiting family in Crowley Texas we went with daughter and grandson to the museum. My daughter is a proud employee with AmericanAirlines and was excited for us to see the museum. There is a movie overview, a full size plane, examples of jet engines and even uniforms to view. If you have a few hours at DFW while waiting... More

Wonderful movie about AA to start of the visit, must see for Avgeeks :) Also quite interesting is the status of the current American Airlines and the videos about its daily operations. Makes you enjoy the next (AA) flight way more

We had time to kill before we had to be at airport so thought would check this place out. It was alright. A lot of the hands on display's didn't work. Some of the displays could use so sprucing up. But it was alright to kill time and be close to airport.

This museum is great for airplane fanatics like my fiancé is. He was very amazed by all the aircrafts and information they had on display and for me it was ok. Not really an airplane or aircraft kind of person but my fiancé loved it. We went for a family trip so we had kiddos from an infant to toddler... More

I found the museum neat because I grew up in a town where most people worked at a plane factory, and I worked at a factory making blades that go into jet turbines. The kids liked it because they also had a Lego exhibit.

A very well done museum about the history of one of America's premier original transcontinental airlines. The original AA dc-3 is wonderful ( resplendent in its iconic buffed silver skin, orange edging and blue eagle and AA original logo). I loved the supersonic models from the 1960's and the funky uniforms and wings.

History of American Airlines museum. Not surprising since they have a large training and administration complex just behind. Little activities and play area for small kids. Some interactive exhibits for older kids/teens. Several interesting cutaway displays of aircraft parts. The main exhibit is a restored DC-3. I've seen several military versions (C-47) but not one that was factory built as... More

An aviation museum that is dedicated to airline flying is unheard of, and yet the CR Smith Museum soars with this one. Artifacts from the beginning of commercial travel lead to the most modern and unique forms of airline travel, including the early 747's with the piano bar. Presentations and hands-on displays make this one of the most educational museums... More
