  • The museum had some nice displays, but many of them look a little tired. They were in the process of some updates and look forward to visiting once they finish the new women of aviation display.  more »
  • Lots of cool exhibits located in an old airport building. You not only learn a lot, but get a sense of what air travel was like back in the day.  more »

  • Going through the Kansas Aviation Museum was like being a time traveler. Beginning with Doc and all its amazing reconstruction one winds their way through a progression of airplanes ending out on the tarmac with newer representations of the industry. A person can take a self-guided tour but on hand are a number of pilots and professionals that are eager to answer all of your questions. Had we been able to gain entrance to the control tower it would have been a five-star visit.
  • Went here with my Dad. There was a lot to look at concerning the aviation industries and planes made in Wichita. Was really informative about the aviation history in the Wichita area. Also had a big campus to explore. They had some hands on exhibits, and an some airplanes to look at on the premises. Highly recommend this place to visit. It is a local treasure to explore.
