At $8 each it was really good value and a must for any aviation enthusiast or children. The exhibitions are in pristine condition, and well displayed, staff were friendly and helpful. On the negative side the shop is quite expensive and some of the exhibits would benefit from a little extra space.

If you are an aviation enthusiast you will enjoy this small but very informative flight museum. I enjoyed my visit. It only took 45 minutes and I stopped to read about each exhibit. I hear the museum is moving to Ellington Field in 2017 so I'm glad I visited before it leaves Galveston.

Well preserved collection of classic planes with links to Texas.....but that's it - very little else once you've walked round the hanger. Is it worth $10 - not really

Lots of interesting items to see, but doesn't take very long to see it all. The workers are very nice.

Very interesting to look at the planes and memorabilia. You can take a plane ride for a fee. Very nice people. Very worth going to see.

My husband and I flew on a biplane. Open air plane all around galveston. It was a one seater with just the pilot who was great. He pointed out landmarks and answered questions. Everyone there was great! Well worth the money! Then we went thru the museum. A great day!

We had a great visit at this Lone Star Flight Museum. There is a lot to see at this museum. There are several old WW II planes, Army jeeps and and old 1941 Chevy truck to see. They also have a shop where you can purchase t-shirts and models of planes, and toys. We will be sure to come back... More

This gem of a museum is tucked away next to the Moody Gardens Hotel. If you are interested in aviation, and especially WWII airplanes, do NOT miss an opportunity to visit this museum. Reasonably priced at $10, you could easily spend hours walking through the exhibits, which are not limited to planes but include many other even earlier exhibits, some... More

Great place to bring the dads & grandpas....especially those who have served in the military (whatever country that may be). My guys could have stayed all day...me -- you've seen one plane, you've seen them all. But....I'm always happy to recommend this historical Galveston museum!
