“An Excellent Little Museum With A Big Heart”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I will start by saying this is absolutely one of the best aviation museums we have ever visited! We visited this museum with our three children (ages 9, 6, and 3) and had a wonderful time and would definitely go back. We have recommended several other family members and friends to this museum as well.

The museum is an easy one-hour drive from the Colorado Springs area. There is plenty of available parking and our great experience started at the registration desk. The admission price is VERY reasonable and the staff were helpful right from the start.

One of the jewels of this collection is the beautiful B29 "Peachy". One of the kind gentleman actually took us on a tour inside this airplane, all the way up into the cockpit! He was so kind to all of our children, and answered every question they asked, and even asked them some questions to keep the interaction going.

There is also a nice C47, a T-28 Trojan, a C-131A, and numerous other helicopters and airplanes. What we absolutely LOVED about this museum is not only can you get up close to these airplanes (and you don't have to view them through plexiglass!), they actually ENCOURAGE you to do so! They have several exhibits that you can go inside including the impressive Hurricane Hunter and a new C-130 cockpit exhibit they were working on.

There is a fun kids area where they can dress up in military costumes and sit in a small flight trainer. The staff were all so friendly and kind to us during our entire visit. This really is a museum for families!

This museum earned a full 5-star review from us for doing such a wonderful job of promoting aviation and history, having great hands on experiences, and making it come alive for children by being so friendly and welcoming to us! Great job!

“Great military museum”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Has a B-17 and lots of other aircraft and they are adding more aircraft and hangar space everytime I've been there. They have docents available for even a couple of people. Half price coupons are available att all the tourist info sites. Definitely worth an hour or two. Stop next door to eat at the Spitfire cafe and you can listen to and watch the main runway while you eat.

“An excellent museum”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We were lucky to have Harry one of the mainstays of the voluntarily operated museum to show us around and give us a personal tour. His knowledge of the aircraft and the crew was outstanding and clearly he loves his job. Well worth a visit
