Located within the Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson, this is a very interesting little museum of aviation heroes. We especially enjoyed the video of the Apollo crew and engineers.

This is a great place to take your kids. My son continually wants to go back to visit. If you are a local or visitor, I definitely recommend checking this one out!

This museum has lots of interesting information and exhibits. Of course, the period planes are great, but there is more info about pilots and others. If you enjoy history and aircraft, you will not be disappointed.

This is part of the Wright Patterson Air Force Museum. I enjoyed the history presented. So many people represented in the history of manned flight.

Having just spent a few days taking in Washington DC's sights (including the National Air & Space Museum) I was worried about 'museum fatigue'. Thankfully my kids (8 & 9 year olds) picked out exhibits they liked and were distracted by the interactive maths/science display. This was far and away the best museum I've ever been to, and if I...

I would highly recommend visiting if you ever have the opportunity. This is a free museum, donations welcomed, and it was an excellent place to visit. There is so much to see and so much to learn. If you're ever on the area, give it a try!
