Overview

The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is a museum focusing on aircraft and nuclear missiles of the U. S. Air Force. The objective of the Museum is to preserve and display historic aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and provide STEM education sessions to the young generation. The Museum is a $29.5 million, 300,000-square-foot (28,000 m2) building that features a glass atrium, two aircraft display hangars, a traveling exhibit area, a children's interactive gallery, a 200-seat theater, a museum store, an aircraft restoration gallery, and a snack bar. The glass atrium is constructed of 525 glass panels that encase a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The Museum hosts regular travel exhibitions and several special events throughout the year. The Museum's Education Department is committed to fueling the curiosity of children across the Midwest and to educating them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Regular STEM sessions, workshops and camp programs are available at the Museum.

Our group spent about 2 hrs here and had a great time. Anyone that is interested in airplanes will love this place. The kids (age 13 and 6) also had fun.

The SAC museum is well a visit. The ability to get "up close and personal" with large aircraft is humbling. Some of displays (especially the one dedicated to the holocaust) can be inspiring and exciting. In short, the museum offers much to occupy a half-day...More

Half way between Omaha and Lincoln is a small but fabulous Aerospace Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate. Parking is free and plentiful.

Lousy lighting, pricey to go in, pretty dismal signage. Great planes, that you just don't see that often (B36, B1, SR71, C119). TIGHT displays. Very disappointed.

This museum is about 25 miles south west of Omaha, a short drive from the city. Admission is pretty inexpensive and there are daily tours at 11 AM. If you can't make a tour, it's otherwise pretty self-guided. Two extremely large airplane hangers contain over...More

The Route 66 car show was also happening. Very cool to see the cars and motorcycles among the planes. The museum is clean, and there are many people available to give tours and answer questions. Only negative was the snack bar. Tables were dirty, service...More

We have two kids ages 5 and 7. This was the perfect indoor activity for a hot summer day. We spent easily around 2-3 hours here and the kids (and mom and dad) loved it. The hands-on kid area was a lot of fun and...More

Probably the only way is a taxi but may be cheaper to rent a car. It is just off I -80 so very easy to get to. But is several miles from Onaha depending where you are in the city.

Unfortunately, unless you get a cab, there is no public bus route that comes to the Museum.
