If you are in Denver and love airplanes, this is a fun stop. It is not a huge museum, but it has some nice airplanes to look at. They have an X-Wing fighter from Star Wars here which was fun to see.

Well worth going to see all the old airplanes and read about them. There are many more exhibits with antique equipment to view and read about.

Interesting airplane museum and our large convention party reserved it for the night. Live music was a little loud--well you couldn't carry on a conversation at the table. Enjoyed the display on Amelia Earnhardt the best. Some neat stuff here and enjoyed the luxury bus...More

The exhibit is housed in just one hangar. A welcome video features Harrison Ford. There are dozens of aircraft on display along with items about space flight. The writing on the descriptions could be larger for those of us who need reading glasses. There is...More

From a replica of the Wright brothers’ first plane, World War II aircraft, Vietnam helicopters, and gliders,to many displays about astronauts and space travel, this museum has it all. You can pay a little extra to practice your piloting skills in a flight simulator.

It's a great spot to visit once. Absolutely fascinating if you have an interest or knowledge or airplanes. What a great collection. Not quite as kid friendly as I had hoped, but my kids still liked it. Especially the gift shop :)

A huge hanger that has been turned into a museum. Huge collection of jets with lots of information about each role in the war.

Planes were immaculately kept in the huge hanger. Volunteers were there to answer questions. We even spoke with a retired Air Force Pilot who actually flew one of the aircraft on display. Highly recommend a tour of this museum.

There are so many interesting things in this hangar! We especially liked the whimsical machines that aren't really meant to fly. The displays are well designed.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites Cherry Creek, which was about a minute 15 drive from the museum.
