  • My husband and I visited for the first time today. We live in Charlotte, NC and decided to visit the area. We are huge aviation lovers (especially my husband) and we had a FANTASTIC time! When we first entered, the lovely gift shop employee said that their volunteers are the stars of the show. She was not wrong. We befriended Craig, the docent. He took us under his wing and gave us a very extensive, personal and informative tour of the whole museum! He was so lovely and passionate about it all and added a personal touch to every piece. The museum already seemed great on its own but he enhanced the experience 200%. It’s obvious how much love, respect, pride and enthusiasm the staff and volunteers have for the museum and that energy radiates to the guests. Thank you for a great experience. We hope to come back soon! Side note: we loved the Polish exhibit.
  • It was a very good experience. They are hard at work restoring aviation history. I've been there several times over the years. They are always changing things up,putting new planes and helicopters on display. If you are interested in aviation or mechanical minded, it's definitely worth a visit. Their centerpiece is a beautiful B29 stratto fortress. All of their aircraft on display are simply awesome 👌
