  • Fun for both adults and kids. Very educational for adults and I could have spent all day reading the various exhibits. Since we had our 2.5 year old son we mostly catered to him. He was in awe of all the different airplanes and exhibits. There is a large play area with educational play. Would definitely come again.
  • I think it’s safe to say this is appropriate for all ages. Our 1 year old had fun crawling around the foam blocks in the kid area, our 3 yr old and 5 yr old were inspired by the STEM/play area and the interactive displays throughout, and there are interactive engineering and electrical stations for older kids. My husband is into aerospace and I perceived this to be a slightly less interesting stop on our trip, but I was impressed! I believe his highlight was seeing the B36 that he’s always wanted to see, but is quite rare now. Worth a stop! If you are mildly interested, you can likely spend 3+ hours and if you are a fanatic, you could probably spend 3 days!
