Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really? Open Saturdays and Sundays only? And even then only open 11am to 4pm?
Recommend they carve out .5% of executive salaries to hire a full time attendant M-S 9 to 5.

We had a great time visiting this museum for my Dad’s birthday. Walter was incredibly knowledgeable and provided us with a wonderful free tour of the facility. His back stories added tremendously beyond the plaques on the walls.

Wanted to get away for my birthday and decided to go to Niagara Falls to see the aerospace museum which focuses on the aviation history of upstate NY and includes actual aircraft from Curtiss Wright, Bell Aerospace and the Consolidated Aircraft Co.

They had a unique one of a kind Cunningham-Hall GA-36 built in Rochester NY (was first plane to feature double motion wing flaps devised to lower landing speeds and not flying speeds) which was exciting to see as well as an actual control panel used by a mission controller during the Apollo moon missions. I love space so it was nice to see what items they had including a Lunar Ascent Engine and Rocket Belt (like seen in "Thunderball").

The place includes a few nice helicopters and lots of items celebrating the aviation history of NY. Being on the airport grounds, you might get lucky to see various planes taking off or landing.

Highly recommended museum for history and aviation buffs.

We have visited Niagara Falls several times over the years and it seems to change slightly by season. This is the first time that we went to the museum and found it not only closed but the building up for sale/lease.

If you're interested in aviation at all and in particular aviation history in Buffalo, NY, this is a must see museum. It has extensive photographs and actual aircraft on display from Curtiss Wright, Bell Aerospace and the Consolidated Aircraft Co. You can walk through yourself or enjoy a tour. Our tour guide Walter was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend it and plan on spending at least a couple hours there!

My husband’s father was stationed at the air force base and my father worked for Moog, yet, neither of us ever visited the museum. When we found out about it, we decided to take a tour with our 13 year old son. Walter L. was available to lead the way and he was amazing !!! He knew what he was talking about and he was very educational and not boring. I learned so much about aviation and now it is just more me and my husband can have discussions about and I will have knowledge and understanding. Great visit

My husband loves anything to do with aviation, especially if it’s near an airport. Fortunately our home is near an airport and husband is a pilot! We have made our backyard a wonderful experience!

I had a wonderful visit with my daughter. The people there made it interesting for my daughter who isn't really an aviation fan. The exhibits are arranged in an easy to follow order and the staff is very accommodating.

Located near a small airport this place is well worth the drive! There is free parking right out front, and wheel chairs inside who need them.

Pricing is reasonable, plus the vet discount is extended to Canadians as well!

The museum is rather large and there is a great deal to see. There is also a play room for kids, with colouring and toys.

Well worth the drive! I look forward to returning.
