  • I have been to several business events here. It is interesting to visit. The area has been built up, so there are not a number of restaurants nearby. Its not the Washington Air and Space museum, but i...  more »

  • If you are into airplanes, this is the place for you. We had a really good time recently wondering about the museum for a couple of hours. It is small, but very interesting. Something for all ages.  more »

  • Mostly handicap accessible. A lot to learn and read about each object or moment in history. I off course adored the star wars stuff. There were a few cool things the kids could interact with which kept them busy. We were there about 3 hours. I would of stayed longer but the kiddos got bored. It would be super neat if they had and an adult and children designed audio tour, but the object hunt they had was fun.
  • My husband and I visited the museum today, and I must say I was very disappointed. The entire space seemed disheveled and unorganized. Many displays were dark and many had no identification or explanation. There were some well presented showcases, but overall it seemed like they were in the middle of a move. We have been across the entire US and have visited many many air museums. This was the worst example I have seen. My recommendation would be for the curators of Wings to visit Pensacola‚Äôs Air Museum and see how a well run and organized a museum can be.
  • I enjoyed this place. My late Father was a officer pilot who flew a couple of those planes and jets. Brought back lots of fun memories as a child. Most i loved the cravings depicting war soldiers. The artist got that right.
  • A few years ago it was five stars. I try to go by here every two to three years to see what's changed. I was disappointed they took down the American Volunteer Group, otherwise known as the AVG display in the China Burma theater. Also missing was the overhead picture of lowry Air Force Base 30 to 40 years ago. It was nice to see the aerial photo of the base so you can pick out where you lived and went to school. The biggest disappointment was I didn't see Colonel William Bower's display, a pilot with the Doolittle Raiders. I know he used to have a display but wasn't able to find it. A volunteer at the Museum said he don't think it's displayed anymore. Out of the 6-8 times I've been here, this one was disappointing.
  • Great educational place! Our 10 years old son and I were at the Young Eagles Flight Experience last Saturday. Danny was thrilled about the flight! He experienced his first flight with a pilot at the Centennial Airport. The program was absolutely free! A good way to introduce your kids to the world of aviation! Highly recommended!
