Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, facility is clean, and the museum layout has a great flow. Nearly all of the aircraft on display are flight worthy, and patrons of the museum can go for flights in many of the aircraft displayed.

Beautiful new facility located near Ellington Air Field. If you are a flying enthusiast this is a must visit while you are in the Houston area. The aircraft here are not rusting relics. Most if not all are in exemplary condition and flyable.
A great way to spend several hours in this museum for the family especially if you like airplanes. The majority are from World War II era and are in fantastic condition. Many of them still fly and you might get to watch them. For a...More

I am a volunteer docent at the museum. Our Aviation Learning Center (ALC) is currently one of only two in the USA. It operates weekdays for scheduled groups of students from 5th through 12th grades. On weekends, the simulator portion of the ALC is available to the public at specified hours as our Pilot Experience at an additional charge to the museum admission and with minimum age requirements. The full ALC experience takes about 3 hours for students to complete. Separate from the ALC is the museum's Flight Academy (FA) which is part of the general admission charge. The FA contains a number of hands on, interactive exhibits demonstrating the principles of flight and also includes 2 hang glider simulators. The simulators are great fun for all ages.
