Owner description: Located just off I-29 interstate, The Fargo Air Museum is an easily accessed pet friendly, must-stop location. North Dakota's premiere aviation destination, the Fargo Air Museum's dual hangars are home to aircraft of all eras - from a modern unmanned reconnaissance drone to the "most accurate recreation of a Wright Brothers' flyer the Smithsonian Institute has ever seen." A "flying" museum, many of the airplanes occasionally take to the sky, a unique feature not found in the vast majority of the nation's static-display air museums. More than just a simple place to display its many aircraft, military memorabilia and exhibits, the Fargo Air Museum also houses one of the midwest's largest Aviation libraries. In addition, the museum hosts educational day-camps, speakers and seminars for flight fans of all ages to enjoy. The Fargo Air Museum is a fantastic choice for a unique venue for corporate & private events and has quickly become a local favorite for hosting wedding ceremonies and receptions. Please email for event rental information. Located across the street from the Fargodome, the museum is also surrounded with dining opportunities and is conveniently just moments away from the Fargo's Hector International Airport.

Many vintage airplanes and helicopters, many of them combat aircraft. But for me, the gems were the billboard displays on aviation pioneers, and particularly women pilots and test pilots. That part in particular was fascinating.

Pros: A few nice planes.

Cons: There were seriously only a FEW planes. Might have been nicer if they had had more. Especially since most of the planes out back were privately owned with homemade signs. Very expensive for what you get to see.

Very enjoyable, lots to look at, sit in and read. Cost was reasonable and you can stay as long as you like.

I love planes and the Fargo Air Museum has a pretty cool collection, especially for a small museum. Love the plans and vision for expansion of the Air Museum.

I promised my 11 yr old son we could go here since we were in town for baseball. It is a big hangar with planes, displays, a library, and various artifacts. My aviation knowledge is zero, but most things have descriptions/signs and you can go through self-guided at your own pace. One thing I wish they had (as a novice) was something to indicate which were replicas and which were real. We were almost going to leave and one of the staff members called to a volunteer named Martin. This knowledgeable young man and another one told us anything you'd want to know (and then some). One 4-5 yr old little boy exclaimed, "This....is....AMAZING!!" They were setting up for a wedding when we were there but it didn't seem to take away from any of the displays that I could tell. Modestly priced and a good way to spend some time if you are in town and need something to do. Obviously, you would need to have an interest in airplanes to get the most out of it. They do have a fair amount of t-shirts/souvenirs available for sale as well. One other thing is if you have the brochure, not everything in there is on display, since the stuff is on loan and comes and goes. Most was there however.
