  • This museum is very close to Love Field, so we visited prior to picking up family at the airport. It was a great way to spend an hour or more. The museum is laid out to reflect the history of flight, from the Wright Brothers through space travel, which includes the Apollo VII spacecraft and a full size model of the 1903 Wright Brothers airplane. One of our favorites is the opportunity to climb aboard a Boeing 737 Southwest Airline nose, and aircraft. There is also a nice gift shop for souvenirs. This is a great museum to learn the history of flight.
  • Detailed planes and museum exhibits make this places 10 dollar admission worth it. Lots of the planes are hung up in the roof however and they makes it difficult to really see them. The stuff you can see however is awesome and highly detailed. They have an entire section devoted to Southwest Airlines and being as I work there that was pretty cool.
