Great place for kids. Grandchildren ages 4 and 7 loved going into the 747 cockpit and the 7 year old loved the simulator. Brought our lunch and ate at the picnic tables watching the planes take off.

Spent 2 hours there - I would recommend taking the simulated flight tour - it was a lot of fun and there are hands-on exhibits which I thoroughly enjoyed as an adult.

The museum is much larger than I thought. The displays and planes were so interesting. My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the museum.

Unless you have small children, don't go to the "Skylab" inflatable planetarium show. For us, it was a waste of time as well as the additional $5, and was uncomfortable and geared to small children. There was so much ambient noise in the museum around it that it was hard to hear and sounded like the young woman giving our program was shouting and straining her voice. I especially enjoyed learning about early aviators in the area where we live, and seeing very old models of planes. It totally changed my opinion of aviation museums in general and I would now like to go to more of them.

From Our Editors

Helicopter pioneer Stanley Hiller Jr. founded the Hiller Aviation Museum with the future in mind, using history to inspire future generations to explore and create. He had firsthand proof of the innovative abilities of youth—his design for the first successful coaxial helicopter landed at age 19.

In the museum he established in 1998, 53,000 square feet of exhibits let visitors of all ages discover more than 40 aircraft without the dangers of encountering them in the wild. A narrated walking tour leads the way through them, tracing the history of flight from its humble beginnings in village jumping contests to today's supersonic jets. Fixed-wing and rotary aircraft designed by Hiller and others rest throughout the huge, bright space, while weekends beckon would-be pilots into a flight simulator equipped with huge monitors of bay views and realistic yokes, throttles, and pedals.
