National Museum of the US Air Force
Welcome to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Prepare to have a high-flying time at the world's largest and oldest military aviation museum! Whether you are an educator looking for a STEM connection or a youth group leader or family looking for fun aerospace activities, we have a variety of programs to meet your needs. Because we want your visit to be the best it can be, we encourage you to review all the materials in this section carefully before your visit to familiarize yourself and your group or family with what the museum has to offer.
First time visit for my family and me. We enjoyed as much of the exhibits as three toddlers would allow. 😉 I loved the little atrium style cafe, the gift shop, the photo booth, the service and staff. The overall cleanliness of the place was excellent, and the vehicles and aircraft were exceptionally maintained. I also liked that they had free access to strollers, as this made the visit a lot easier with little ones. We are from Iowa and will definitely make the trip, again. Thank you all, at the museum, for making this a great experience.
This place is truly unbelievable. Very friendly and helpful volunteers, hundreds upon hundreds of vehicles, many of them unique. The free admission makes the expensive food and gift shop sting less. I have no problem contributing to this incredible facility. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
Run. Don't walk. Run to visit the National Museum of the Air Force. I finally got to check this off my bucket-list in October of 2017 and was not disappointed. As you drive towards the museum, you get a sense of the size/scope of what you're about to experience. The museum complex is absolutely huge! The variety of the aircraft, the way they're displayed and the information that is presented is absolutely stunning. We only spent a 1/2 day at the museum and are planning a return trip back. The only thing that was lacking was the space-shuttle. Beyond getting a feel for the size/scope of the shuttle, we were disappointed with that. Everything else was phenomenal.
This museum is absolutely brilliant. A must see for anyone interested in aircraft and necessity to book at least one whole day. I would never think I see so many rare and unique planes in real. In addition nice shops with aircraft stuff, outside park and more events. Free entrance as bonus. Thank you!
My husband loves planes and I'm not very interested in war museums. BUT this is AMAZING and I returned 3 times now. This is a very engaging and comprehensive presentation of aircraft from the early days to the present. The R&D aircraft are fascinating. It is family friendly and offers free guided tours. Plenty of docents are available to answer questions. FREE admission!
