The museum features an extensive collection of aviation history artifacts and vehicles, and focuses on the history of aviation and space exploration with an emphasis on the role of the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

As an ex military fighter pilot I thought this museum was very well done with many very interesting exhibits. My grandson and I had a great visit.

Wonderful museum with knowledgeable people all around. The museum itself is great, though some of it's technology wasn't working. For example, some of the simulations on screens didn't work. Text heavy! However, I don't mind standing around reading, which is why I'm rating it 5 stars. With its planes and lots of room, I don't see kids getting bored, especially when there's a play area specifically for them. I didn't get to explore that area because it's only for children and their families. The price is great and the gift shop is wonderful! Restrooms are well maintained and clean. If you're a history buff for WWI and WW2, national and international flight history as well as local history, I recommend this museum. I will certainly be going back!
Educational and fun. Kids will love it. And teens and all. Amazed how many airplanes they have display in the museum space. So much to see. I can spend a day here. Too bad there is no restaurant inside.
