It's a place where the aviators of the past are remembered, and the aviators of the future are inspired. You never know - your little one in the family could be the next great space explorer or pilot! Imagine that!

The museum has a goal of ensuring the honor the servicemen and women, the aviators and astronauts that have come out of northwest Texas. They also provide kids the experience of seeing and touching the amazing technology of the future! 

There are a number of exhibits at the museum, and a LOT of actual aviation models for the kids to really get up close to. Pretty impressive! There are Mustang and Caribou aircraft, as well as the very fancy named "Pterodactyl Ascender".  There is also an extensive range of models of some pretty incredible pieces of work. 

The exhibits themselves are fascinating too, and a great way for kids to learn about where these amazing aircraft would have been used - particularly in the war. There are photo collages highlighting various war aircraft, including the Vietnam War, Cold War, and the two World Wars.
