Hill Aerospace Museum Reviews
Lots of planes both indoor and outside with information about each one, sometimes with a Utah focus as Hill AFB is next door. We only had 90 minutes so no time to watch videos or special topics in... more »
Great free activity to see. So many cool planes to look at, amazing history to learn, and you get to be right up next to some of the coolest flying machines in existence. Can't ask for much better more »
Always worth a little extra drive to spend the day here. Awesome planes and exhibits. Favorite has to be the SR-71 Blackbird and one of only a handful of museums that have this jet. So many aircraft you can spend hardly anytime looking at each plane and still have ti take over an hour. Or spend the day taking in each exhibit and take your time which is what I recommend cause this place is packed with some awesome aircraft. well worth the cost of admission (which is free).
One of the best USAF museums without a doubt! Admission is FREE and the museum is staffed by an amazing group of volunteers, many with detailed knowledge of aircraft and some amazing personal experiences. I live nearby and have visited this place many times and have always enjoyed it. Thanks to the museum staff and volunteers for all they do to preserve this important piece of Aerospace history!
