My third visit. This is a working museum, so it is a little different each time I go. The aircraft are restored and kept in flying condition, some of which are the only flying examples in existence. The volunteers are enthusiastic, dedicated, and knowledgable. Appropriate for all ages.

How often do you walk into a museum and are made to feel incredibly welcome, plus, are surrounded by enthusiastic volunteers. This museum may not be huge, but its quality is high and the docents knowledgeable. We had the pleasure of being there when a pilot was flying his P 51 Mustang outside. What a thrill to see that beauty... More

Wow! My wife and I went here in Nov 2016. Utterly humbled by the Aviation history of WW II on display here. A National treasure. The history of the men and women, the aircraft and the love put into this shows in every corner and wall. Make time to see this. We took a guided tour then had lunch at... More

Great Museum. We started doing the tour on our own and ended up talking with so many volunteers the entire way through the museum. The volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Our kids LOVED seeing all of the planes, doing the flight simulator and getting to meet Mr. Bill Klaers who let us see the inside of one of his... More

The staff and the exhibits here are excellent, would definitely recommend if you have a couple of hours to spare. I felt that the guided tour was a little long (2 hours), but my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was very informative and obviously passionate about the subject, and it was great to see all the old planes (and... More

Great museum! Very informative and the staff was very knowledable and friendly. Lots of history to learn. We had a wonderful guide named Rick who obviously loves his job.. Off the beaten path but at the Colorado Springs Airport. If in town you must see, check dates in the winter time...you won't be disappointed.

My son is a huge WWII enthusiast and wanted to see this. There is a lot of interesting things, but a little overwhelming. We did the guided tour and he was very informational but we did feel the tour was a little long.
