What an educational place for kids and family. Try their stimulator, go on cockpits, learn the history of aviation and see different types of planes by US Air Force. Neat place to hang out or have a birthday party.

I went with my wife and kids (18yr and 13 yr old). The staff/volunteers were welcoming. It's a self guided tour. If your not into planes you shouldn't go. Had a small section on space flight. The kids were bored for the most part. They enjoyed the flight simulator, but that was an additional cost(simulator could cause motion sickness).

We spent several hours enjoying the displays of planes etc with all the stories attached to them. It is a well maintained and very large area and wonderful to stroll around.

I have a 10 year old who is obsessed with planes and if his speechless reaction is any indicator, we had an amazing visit. The place is huge with planes from various points in history and different countries (and different planets if you count the Star Wars fighter). You can easily spend an hour here just looking around. We also... More

Found this on Tripadvisor while stuck in our condo during out ski trip due to bad weather. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We were greeted at the door wroth smiles and a warm welcome. The collection of aircraft is awesome with the majority of them having already been preserved or restored in excellent condition. The hangar it's self... More

I took my 9 & 10 year old here yesterday. $30 entry combined. There are only a few items children can touch. The rest is looking and reading. The welcome greeter, Robert Moody, was more interested in his personal phone call making plans for his night than giving us information about anything. I give my 3 stars for cleanliness and... More

I was here for the annual Colorado Avalanche Meet the Team party in November and was reminded what a great venue this is for large parties. There are several areas to set up bars and food, lots of places to congregate, and the planes are such great conversation starters (not that that's needed when you're talking to an Av!). Anyway,...

Recommend for air and space enthusiasts. Has many educational and historical displays. I loved the film in the Harrison Ford theater. Plan on a 2 hour visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

There are so many things to see and enjoy. The planes, the uniforms the officers wore, the history about where happened and where are all interesting to see and read about. There are even a few items available for purchase.
