We went there on a Friday and it was not crowded. We were given a free tour around and that made all the difference. Our guide "Gary" was an army veteran and quiet knowledgeable. There is a play area with an aeroplane that kids could climb into and pretend to be pilots. Our kids just wouldn't come out of that area. You can see a Boeing 737 plane upclose and climb inside. It is housing the Southwest Airlines memorabilia. We also used a Groupon coupon that is available as of writing this, that allows entry for two for the price of one.

Not the largest air museum but informative and well presented. Very helpful ex-service guides to add expert knowledge. Visit spoiled somewhat by inconsiderate parents allowing their children to should and scream excessively (albeit in the play area) - so loud it was impossible to listen to some of the exhibit presentations.

This museum, located near Love Field in Dallas, offers a look at the history of flying from the Wright brothers to a view inside today's jumbo jet. When our seniors group announced a trip to this flight museum, I wasn't sure about going. But it turns out that the $6 entrance fee (senior rate) was well worth the time and the money. A WW II vet took us on an hour guided tour. Afterwards we could browse areas of personal interest. My favorite was the living history program where "Amelia Earhart" and "Wylie Post" told us their stories. The impersonators even looked like their characters. I was amazed at the interior of the Apollo 7 command module on display where 3 astronauts sat side by side in such a small space. This museum is interesting for the smallest child to seniors. They offered a wheel chair (at no additional cost) to one person in our group. You can get more information at http://www.flightmuseum.com.

Went to a dinner hosted at this museum through a conference. It was very interesting to see the vintage planes that hang from the ceiling and really cool to see some fighter jets up close and personal. There are facts about each plane and a section about the history of commercial airlines. Even some airline seats you can sit in.

In the back is an area for kids with some climb on toys. Also, Southwest Airlines literally has a plane lodged into the back of the building that you can enter and see what it's like in the inside of an airliner. Pretty darn cool.

I recommend this for a quick trip as it doesn't take a really long time to go through everything, so you don't have to spend a whole day at a museum. Lots of good picture opportunities and the planes are colorful and very well preserved.

Volunteer retired pilot interpreters are often on-hand to give a personal recollection and more insight to the experience of being in these craft. Compact and varied collection with exceptional preservation.
