A very nice aviation museum. I liked the murals behind the planes to give the impression of how things were.

It was a great little museum packed full of history, aircrafts, and aircraft parts. My boys absolutely loved it, especially sitting in the cockpits. We would have loved to do the flight simulators, but there were about 5 busses worth of students doing them. The field of aircrafts down the road is a bit sad...kind of like a plane graveyard. The gift shop isn't great either. The museum itself was fascinating, and at only $5 a person, completely worth the time.
A small museum dedicated to the aviation. It is has wonderful replicas of legendary planes, as the Wright bothers or Spirit of San Louis, an real pieces. Also an extensive objects collection related to the aviation.
This is an awesome museum! These folks have done a great job on their exhibits. My favorite is the Vietnam scene with the Cobra and the Little Bird. My only wish is it was bigger. Something really cool is they have some cockpit trainers you can get it and it gives you a great feel if what it is like. We are definitely adding this to our regular quarterly stop along with the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
We had a great time taking our family to the flight museum! Our young kids loved it. Pricing was reasonable, and parking a breeze. The exhibits were really fun and informative. There’s plenty to do and see; enough to keep you busy for several hours. The surrounding neighborhood is a bit rundown and some of the exhibits were closed or not clearly labeled; nothing that’s a deal breaker though. There’s a fun gift shop at the end. I would recommend it to others!
I picked up a group on and decided to visit this place on a whim. This was definitely the smallest aviation museum I have ever visited; however, I was extremely impressed. Even after visiting the Smithsonian this museum had a lot of value. The main part of the museum was divided into recent and older aviation displays. The highlight of my trip was seeing a Navy Blue Angel demonstration airplane and my favorite jet the A-7. They also had a small section down the street with maybe 12 airplanes to include the SR - 71 Blackbird spyplane. My kids enjoyed the freeze dried icecream sold in the gift shop. Definately worth the visit if you are in the area!
