This is inside the Air Force Museum near the Bob Hope exhibit. A number of interactive and static displays. Kids had fun.

This is a nice addition to the museum. Gives history of aviation. Some photos. Some simulation games. Breaks down aviation and makes it interesting for more people and children.

This is attached to the USAF museum. Mostly just pictures and information about famous aviators. Does have some pretty cool hands-on activities good for children and adults alike. Worth a stop if you are already at the USAF museum.

This place is even better than I had hoped. I only had 2 hours and probably saw 1/6 of the museum. Free entry and free parking, pretty easy to get to off I-70.

This is my favorite museum. It's is huge. It will take a lot of time. The movie is great. It had the largest gift shop I have ever seen. There is a new 4th building. I love this place.

If you are only visiting the small National Aviation Hall of Fame room, then 30 minutes is more than adequate unless you have a real fascination for that aspect of aviation. However, the entire museum is over 17 acres with... More
