One of the best space and flight museums. You can see one of the older Airforce 1, Concord and other large planes to walk in such as 747.

This is the best museum experience in the West. Give yourself a good three hours to do it all. Historic location of the most important airplane company in the world.

What distinguishes this one for me is the walk on accessibility of the Concorde SST and the Space Shuttle. the interactive displays, and The Red Barn restoration showing the earliest tools use to create aircraft. Well worth the investment of time and money for all... More

It was a very interesting experience. Now, how did the lady tour guide do this? Beats me.... she did not have a heat sheet as she guided us around. She memorized the whole thing!!! She explained each place what to expect. Awesome. We had a good time. There were about 20 of us, btw.

We love our membership at the museum. Always new exhibits and special events to keep us coming back. Both in door and outdoor exhibits. Plenty of free parking, a cafe and many historic planes to examine.
