We stopped in briefly to KCOS and noticed a museum. We were beyond impressed. The attention to detail (all the planes fly), hospitality, professionalism and passion for aviation are unmatched. We are planning another trip specifically to spend more time in the museum. On the technical side, watching the skilled craftsmen rivet a wing was an added bonus. For the... More

The aircraft are all restored, and everything flies !! The B-25 on display was used and flown in the movie "Pearl Harbor" ! One of... More

I have been there many times, because of my military background and my husband was a fighter pilot, each time I visit I find a new display that I have not seen on previous visits, there are always new exhibits to see. A must if you are visiting Colorado Springs.

Rare vintage aircraft painstakingly restored, most of which can still be flown. Fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of the work in progress. Knowledgeable staff helped make this visit a learning experience, even for experts. Special tours for children. A great collection of stories supporting the exhibits. Entry fee very affordable.

I took my students here for a fieldt rip and they learned so much through the exhibits, static deiplays and hands on science activities they set up for us.

The National Museum of WW II Aviation is a must see! Amazing Things: From the varying stages of refurbished artifacts to the modern and organized displays, you will certainly discover something new about the time period and the people who fought during this conflict! One may browse the well-presented displays alone or opt for a docent-guided tour outlining the time... More
