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!

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!

Lots of planes and jeeps. Gift shop gives you the opportunity to take home a great gift to represent the museum. Depending on what days you go, you can take a ride in a plane! Still kicking myself for not taking a ride! $10 for adults, $8 for kids.
