“Free museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

Spent an hour here and especially enjoyed seeing the lunar modules that are on display. Easy to walk around and not too large a museum.

“Crowded!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

My husand and I have visited many times; each time it is crowded! We enjoyed the air travel through the decades exhibit; flight attendants have come a long way.

“Been back twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

Went first in August 2010 and then again in February 2011. My son loved looking at all the planes.

When we went in 2010 my 10 year old was not with us but he had given me a list of things that he wanted me to check out for him. The staff were great in pointing out the displays that he wanted me to see.

It was even better going back in February 2011 and being able to share with my son the displays that he had previously asked me to see.

Love this museum and cannot wait to go back

“Great place for a child who wants to be a pilot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

My son (& husband) loved this place. It had such wide variety if interactive displays. A huge McDonalds is located inside the museum. Great for refuelling after a big day sightseeing.
