The Frontiers of Flight Museum is an aerospace museum located in Dallas, Texas, founded in November 1988 by William E. Cooper, Kay Bailey Hutchison, and Jan Collmer. Originally located within a terminal at Dallas Love Field, the museum now occupies a 100,000-square-foot (9,300 m2) building at the southeast corner of Love Field on Lemmon Avenue. The museum is an affiliate within the Smithsonian Affiliations program.
Aviation historian George E. Haddaway promoted the founding of the museum subsequent to donation of his extensive personal collection of aviation history books, journals, photographs, as well as archives to the University of Texas at Dallas as the nucleus of one of the world's finest aviation collections, the History of Aviation Collection.
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. Exhibits include the Apollo 7 Command Module; a World War I Sopwith Pup biplane replica; artifacts from the German airship Hindenburg and other airships; and over 200 World War II aircraft models.

  • More than I expected. Exhibits are well done and interesting. A lot in a very small space. Worth the trip.

  • Compared to the Smithsonian or Ohio Aviation this is a tiny museum. It is, however, very nicely organized and has several items on loan. There's a Blue Angels plane, as well as a space capsule. Lots.....  more

  • 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!
  • We had some time to kill between leaving our hotel and arriving at the airport for our flight. This place was really fun. It's large and spacious, great for kids. Plenty of things to do. It's air conditioned, has plenty of restrooms, and a gift shop on your way out. The volunteers make this place! A lot of them are retired military or use to work in the airline industry in one way or another. At only $10.00 per adult, it's an inexpensive and pretty relaxing time.
