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.

Nice museum, but smaller than I imagined. All the planes were "working" planes and there were other things to look at including a small library. They let you get right up to or under the planes. Nothing is roped off, you can't climb inside them, but was nice to really see some of these planes up close. Beware of well meaning adults who will give you a guided tour, whether you want one or not. Overall I did enjoy the visit.

This is by far one of Fargo's best sights. If you are visiting and like aviation you need to see this place. They just expanded and it is great.

Wow, B-17 rides, the only flying B-29 in the world, P-51's... What a weekend. This place is way cool and the people were great.

Not a huge collection but still worth a look if you enjoy vintage war planes. They sometimes run special events, like Vietnam era planes and they do bring special events, like taking a ride on a WWII B-17 bomber.

I h ave been to the air museum several times with visiting relatives. The hangar that houses the planes is not large, so the visit can take an hour - or more if one talks with the guides. Anice feature is being able to climb in many of the planes to get a ral feel for them.
