This place is a must for aviation geeks. The old school planes, modern day beasts and some nice 4D simulators which were fun. Didn't spend ages as girlfriend isn't the greatest fan of planes (I know right!) but it's free to get into so nothing lost.

As brit I still find it bizarre being searched with airport style security to get into a museum but that's America for ya!

Very nice layout with everything well marked. Tours available and personal audio devices available too. We went on a Wednesday so there were multiple school groups there. This led to a lot more “activity” and watching out for running children before you step. It’s nice to say I’ve been but I don’t think I would need another visit.

Interesting museum with lots to see and take in and about air and space. A few good tour guides that helped bring some of these historic stories to life. No long lines. Recommended

Plenty to see, lots to learn, and great for an educational afternoon. This museum was one of the first museums i ever visited as a youngster in 1953. It was great then, and is even better now since so much has changed and developed over the last 65 years. It is a great learning experience for the youngsters, of today, to see just how it all started and how it has progressed.

Absolutely incredible experience. Looking at the other visitors you could tell that everyone there - even those who’d gone not expecting it to be their thing - was amazed, fascinated, inspired or a mixture of all three.

From the Wright Brothers' first flight, through the Right Stuff's sound barriers and spaceflight, to cutting-edge Mars and deep space exploration, it's all here. There's even the actual USS Enterprise model used in the original Star Trek TV show.

Give yourself several hours at least for this museum and wear sneakers because it’s a big place and you’ll do a fair bit of walking.

I am not sure I can add anything further but I will say, this place was so amazing. It was so cool to see the historic airplanes and jets. Also, I would say that I was impressed with the docents. There was one that came up to us near the Friendship 7 and asked if we had any questions. Then he proceeded to point out interesting things about Friendship 7-that was memorable.

Our grandson was eager to visit this museum along with his grandfather to see all the planes. His favorite was getting to see Chuck Yeager’s plane that broke the sound barrier. There were old history making planes, new planes, and rockets, space vehicles, and several walk through exhibits. Many different galleries highlighted various aspects of air travel and it’s history in the US.
Our 7 year old grandson enjoyed his visit. He wasn’t interested in reading many descriptions but wanted his grandfather to be close by for all moments.

I came to see the Concorde, but there is so much more here, and if you love planes, you will absorb all the history and information this place has to offer, not to mention the space vessels and virtual planet environs.
