Very inexpensive and quite fun! My little guy especially liked the flight simulators, the rescue helicopter, and Big Red the aircraft fire truck.

Thank Judith C

The lady on the desk was so friendly and welcoming. We are from Scotland and surprise, surprise, she said she was due to visit Edinburgh on a UK tour very shortly. She went next door to ask one of the Gentleman who volunteer to assist here if he would show us round. Having just finished his lunch he consented! He clearly, was a very experienced Pilot from bygone campaigns. He took us through all the displays they have. A comprehensive explanation of the evolution of American Fighter planes as well as many of the support and reconnaissance planes, you just would not expect to see such a varied range of American Aeronautical Armory in an enthusiasts volunteer scenario. Congrats to you all and many thanks to our guide fro such an interesting presentation! (Sincere apologies for not noting his name)

What a great place. They have a lot of cool stuff inside of the museum as well as cool planes. Our tour guide Ken told us that Fort Worth has been a major hub for aviation since 1908. A must see

This is an excellent choice for anyone even moderately interested in the history of air support for the United States military. A guided tour will take two hours or less and will include interior and outside exhibits of retired fighting planes and helicopters, many of them with notable histories. Our guide offered expert knowledge as a retired Two Star Admiral and carrier commander! My family and I though it was an excellent visit. What a great value!
