Where are we going today?
Check, wheels up, and we are in the air....or perhaps we are just at the Frontiers of Flight Museum!
The whole family can go on this amazing journey through the history of aviation and all the key milestones that have occurred in the past!
Your journey will cover several lifetimes of stories which will fascinate you - from the very early pioneers who had only dreams of flying, right through to the jet and rocket age of today.
In between, there is the faces behind the planes during the 20s and 30s, also know as the "Golden Age of Flight", and of course giving kids the chance to really understand the sacrifices of those who flew in WWII.
The Frontiers of Flight Museum has over 30 real aircraft in it's collection, as well as space vehicles. Some of these were actually made in Texas!
Kids can go all the way back and discover those iconic "early flyers" such as Glenn Curtiss and of course the Wright brothers. There is even a full size replica of that 1903 "Wright Flyer" which of course became the stepping stone into aviation as we know it today!
There are rare artifacts which are incredible to see in person, such as items from the Hindenburg, and of course galleries on some of the wars, like WWI, WWII, and the Cold War.
Let's not forget about the space age too! Aviation covers all things flight, and the Frontiers of Flight Museum has a super cool Space Flight gallery. Did you know that the Frontiers of Flight Museum has the ONLY moon rock on display in North Texas? Pretty amazing! From Boeings to the Apollo 7 spacecraft, if you have a family who LOVES all things flight - this museum is for you!

I have six children and we attended the museum on a home school field trip. I cannot praise the museum highly enough! We were given an amazing tour on the children's level (many of them are 2nd grade and under) and were treated with a level of kindness and consideration that was above and beyond. The staff at the museum were amazingly informative and helpful. The exhibits are set up well and the children loved how "close" they got to be to history. The class on air foils and building airplanes was phenomenal! They loved building their airplanes...Read More

Fantastic museum with a wide variety of aircraft on display. The museum does a thorough job of detailing the history of flight throughout the years. Extremely friendly staff (mostly retired military airmen) that are willing to share their experiences and their love for aviation.
Also a great historical display of Southwest Airlines and even has the first 737-300.

Great trip for the family. Lots of history. There is a small playground for the kids. Not expensive.

This museum is great for the price. They have a lot of displays with great information and the volunteers there are also great. When I first walked in, one of the volunteers greeted me and gave me a brief overall layout of the museum and told me of the unique displays in the museum. If you're into the history of airplanes or have kids who love planes, this is a good place to visit.

Pretty nice for such a cheap ticket. Kids had fun with the exhibits. Plenty of historical information to keep adults busy. Broad range of flying-oriented displays (not just jet airplanes).

The class on air foils and building airplanes was phenomenal! They loved building their airplanes and watching them fly. The indoor flight themed playground was a huge hit as well. We could not have asked for a better experience and I highly recommend it! Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed.
