This was our 2nd visit with our 1st in late July 2007 so it was great getting to go back.. very nice to be able to tag along with a senior citizen group and learn more about the airplanes from the docents volunteering that day. Looking forward to seeing their new facitily when it opens.

On a hot summer day, it is an air conditioned venue with a collection of WW 2 and other planes. If you have an interest in them, then go, if not, skip. I spent about an hour there and saw all. Didn't see many children, as would be unusual for them to appreciate the collection of "old" planes.

The museum is a fun place to go in Galveston. Kids love seeing the old warbirds. There are many indoor exhibits. You can rent a ride in one of the planes.

Worth the visit! The aircraft are nicely displayed and offer lots of great history and interesting info. My 9-year old grandson really enjoyed this museum.

For the size of the place I would have expected way more aircraft to look at. The price of the ticket was a little steep for the amount of planes that you actually get to look at.

This was a great old warbird museum. It's not very large, but the old planes are fascinating. I took my ten-year-old son and we had a great time. On Thursdays, the volunteer staff offer tours inside the B-17 Flying Fortress that is housed there, and rides in some of the restored aircraft are available.

The museum is easy to locate and there are no parking issues. The museum has some very interesting exhibits and almost all of the planes are flight worthy. Some work was being done on the planes and I found that interesting. The museum is not on the scale of some of the larger museums and a couple of hours should... More

It was a great little place to wander around looking at old planes. It was very interesting to see, just wish it was bigger. Place is kinda small for the price.
