Although this is a small museum, it was worth the drive to Galveston, My six year old loved it! He has a love of airplanes, and this just tickled his fancy. I do wish they had something that was a bit interactive with the kids though. Maybe a hands on feature or something. Other than that the planes looked well loved, nice and pretty. I know some of them fly because you can buy an air ride on some of them. Didn't do that part! I will go again,

So well displayed and spotless its hard to think this was a display of war machines. They shined like vintage cars and made you proud of the men and women who used them in the past and take care of them in the present.

Have been a couple of times & never crowded. Tour admission money goes to a worthy cause. Would like for my grandson to be able to go inside a plane maybe?

I visited on February 6; annual maintenance work was in progress on several of the planes that are flown in the summer, including the B-17. The workers were very willing to chat about mechanical details, it is clearly a labor of love. Conversation with them was a fascinating bonus. Look at the American flag on the right as you enter the first hangar; the stain marks the water level from hurricane Ike. The hangar is not heated so if you go in cold weather bring a coat.

Well, what a surprise!
Considering how much damage the hurricane made, the contents are really well presented. The Catalina I know was left there and is the most beaten up of all of them but as my Dad flew in one in the war it was my favourite (of course).
Shame to hear about the 2 seat Mustang that crashed 1 week after our visit - RIP to those involved.
