While some museums are static examples of aircraft, the coolest part about this museum is most of the planes either do fly or are capable of flying. If you always wanted to fly in a bi-plane...you can sign up for a ride in the one you’re looking at. I’ve gone for several rides in old warbirds throughout the country as a member of the CAF and this place offers similar amazing experiences. You are literally able to view and fly history. The location is great too since NASA has its training aircraft housed nearby. I would recommend this museum for all ages. We’ve seen kids loving life walking around the planes, senior citizens reminiscing, folks bringing their parents in to have them show which planes they helped build during WWII, and people like myself who just love the history and beauty of the exhibits. If you’re from out of town or a local, stop by...it’s a great experience!

Had last visited the Lone Star Flight Museum when it was still based in Galveston and it has fairly recently moved to Ellington to be more protected from hurricane damage. Their collection of flying warbirds is impressive and should not be missed if you are anywhere around Houston. The new premises are well laid out and you can still be up and close to these beautifully maintained aircraft. Noticed that the museum does a lot of STEM work with the local schools which keeps the love of aviation alive!

Went on a Sunday right after opening after the coved 19 shut down. Everyone in a mask and limited number of people allowed in. The exhibits are very good lots of information on planes the pilots and factories in Texas that helped build and train for the wars. The hands on exhibits were not open but they looked very interesting. Flight simulators and more. Lots to take in and read can spend hours in there Very well laid out museum

A well presented museum offering a great insight in the origins of the ariport and flight in the USA. Wonderful to see so many different warbirds flying and offering rides. Get close up and personal to a B-17, B-25 or a ME262. The only disappointment was the lack of a cafe, just a vending machine. We would have gladly spent some dollars on a lunch.

We visited this museum after it was moved from Galveston to Ellington Field and we can tell you the museum managers did an awesome job. So much history combined with wonderful exhibitions and nice souvenirs store makes a unforgettable visit.

What a spectacular discovery! Having no idea what to expect, we were just astonished at this bright, beautiful place - fantastic and planes displayed perfectly - great informative displays and even flight simulators for the whole family. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed sharing stories and history with guests.

I can’t say enough how terrific this is!

Unbelievable museum, Ret. General Owens and his staff have done an exceptional job at this museum. We only had 1 hour to visit, but will be back. Displays/on hand exhibits, aircraft, etc were outstanding. Highly recommend this museum. Make sure you make time to visit. As a retired enlisted man,(30yrs) I salute Ret LtG Owens, this retired General must have been one hell of an officer. it shows at the dedication and effort put into this museum.

Not a huge museum exhibit, but if you are interested in WWII planes, this is a good place to visit. It was brand new when we went and did not know what to expect. It was very interesting and we spent quite awhile there checking out the planes. I am sure that there is more to see now as they were beginning renovations at the time. Coming from a military family and being a military for many years it is always interesting to learn more history. Worth the visit. Dads your sons would like this!

This place is really good but if you have kids like myself wait to visit. They have a lot of hands on things for children that my 11year old so wanted to touch and play with but due to Covid you can’t. It was reduced for ‘summer special’ but still over priced.

The museum has free parking. When I visited, admission was paid in the gift shop. There are several aircraft on exhibit. There is a good history of aviation in general and Texas aviation in particular. There is also a "hall of fame" of Texas aviators which has some recognizable and surprising members. There are conference rooms within the facility for special events.
