What to do in Denver, in winter, for non-skiing visitors? Museums of course. And since Hubs is commercial pilot and 17yo son is aviation history buff, seemed like a no brainer. A single, enormous hanger is home to over 50 planes from various eras of...More

Had an enjoyable couple of hours at this museum looking at lots of exhibits. Mostly naval warplanes but nothing wrong with that plus a B1A Lancer and of course Star Wars X Wing Fighter and a B52 outside in the car park.

This place has some really great exhibits. The personal perspective of Astronauts was interesting. I also enjoyed the history of Continental airlines. There is so much to see and learn in this museum. Fun outing for people who are not even airplane enthusiasts. Great fun...More

If you have a little one who is into airplanes and/or spacecraft, this is a great way to spend a half day. Kids 6-12 would probably enjoy it most. There are many aircraft in the hangar to check out, interesting historical exhibits, and a moving...More

A huge B52 bomber greets you outside the museum and then there's a great collection of post-WWII aircraft including a B1-A bomber. Unbelievable! It's massive. There's an explanation of each aircraft in the museum (a big old hangar) so you can learn a fair bit....More

I was stationed at Lowery for training in '77 and did a visit to the base in '17 after a wedding party. It was O.K. I was surprised at how much "Denver" has grown around the ex-USAF base. Dozens of the old USAF buildings are...More

A super historical place covering time during World War II and beyond. There is a fun beer garden next door as well as an ice cream shop in a rocket ship.

This museum features a good mix of old and modern planes along with their histories. It also has one or two one-of-a-kind airplanes. The gift shop is mostly for kids, sadly. I would enjoy seeing more merchandise for adults. They have very knowledgeable staff on...More

The museum focuses on war birds from 1950s to today (no WWII planes, but they do have nukes). The displays are nice set up with information pages for each plane/exhibit. The docents are terrific - they know their stuff - many from first-hand experience. Plan...More

Hi xtc663, We have a B-1A Bomber, not a B-1B bomber. Only the B-1B Bombers were ever in service. The model A aircraft were used as test machines. Thank you very much for your visit to the Museum! We hope you had a great... More
