I've been to a lot of aircraft museums. Wings over the Rockies is one of the finest! There are so many things this museum is doing well, I cannot list them all. Yes, this museum has the aircraft! But it is far more than that. There were interactive displays. Very importantly, there were niche displays for the forgotten and often... More

This is not as large as the massive and impressive National Museum of the United States Air Force at the Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio which is a national treasure but the display content here justifies spending a few hours refreshing memories of those men and women, some local, some heroes, some both who put their lives on the line...

We were there at a fund raiser and browsed the calendar. We decided we have to come back when they get their new exhibition. Can't wait to see the DaVinci Machined, 65 interactive. Starts April 1st at 5:00...

What an educational place for kids and family. Try their stimulator, go on cockpits, learn the history of aviation and see different types of planes by US Air Force. Neat place to hang out or have a birthday party.

I went with my wife and kids (18yr and 13 yr old). The staff/volunteers were welcoming. It's a self guided tour. If your not into planes you shouldn't go. Had a small section on space flight. The kids were bored for the most part. They enjoyed the flight simulator, but that was an additional cost(simulator could cause motion sickness).

I have a 10 year old who is obsessed with planes and if his speechless reaction is any indicator, we had an amazing visit. The place is huge with planes from various points in history and different countries (and different planets if you count the Star Wars fighter). You can easily spend an hour here just looking around. We also... More
