American Air lines did a great job in not only promoting their company history but also the history of commercial aviation. Even the kids will enjoy this experience

If you like history this place is very good for you to visit. This place also showed the first flight and how the airplane can fly. Don’t forget to take photo with the old airplane and dont miss the movie

The museum is not that big; however, it has a good amount of information about AA's history including videos and equipment from years past. The one downside was a handful of the computer screens and other devices were not working that took away from the...More
