  • Really interesting place, somewhat off the beaten path but worth the trip to check it out. Makes for a great complement to a day at Johnson Space Center if you're hanging around I-45 for the day.

Family friendly!
  • What an awesome little place. It's filled with so much history and beautiful collections that have been donated by locals. The guys there were super nice & helpful and the planes look amazing there. Even the tickets are cheap so no excuse to not go.
