I spent a entire Saturday here, and I loved all of it. This museum has huge hangers filled to the max with historical aircraft. Some aircraft of interest include the XB-70 and the YF-22. It would be easy to spend an entire weekend here. There are many displays that are full of historical information. There are also children's displays, so the entire family can find something to enjoy

Dayton has such a rich history with aviation and that is why its so fitting to have the Air Force Museum situated here, close to the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

You can go through all 3 hangars at the museum and see aircraft from Orville & Wilbur Wright and through current times. You'll be able to see how the aircraft evolved from the start to finish. There are signs talking about how it was used and the specifications.

They have a fabulous gift shop for the aviation buff and a theater as well. You can take your family and spend the whole day and have a very enjoyable time. The cost is FREE.

This museum is very educational and informative about the history of the air force and aviation. The main focus of this museum are the various aircrafts and spacecrafts, offering the very first modes of air transportation of the Wright Brothers to the modern day air crafts that are serving the U.S. Government. Throughout the museum, there are video kiosks that offer further information. The museum is located near Wright Patterson Air Force Base. The costs of admissions is free and they offer a gift shop.

Aircraft all the way from the Wright Brothers aircraft through modern times are housed in several large hangars. Its possible to follow the development of aircraft chronologically as we did, beginning early in the history of flight and continuing until modern space flight. Each aircraft in the over 300 on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum have information about its history as well as its purpose, specifications, and performance. Its not just military aircraft on exhibit, but civilian as well, especially from the early years of aviation. You wont find any modern passenger jets here though (with the exception of those in the Presidential Aircraft Exhibit).

We enjoyed walking around and looking at the exhibits. Especially in the war-time exhibits, there were often scenes set up to show what a scene of an airstrip would look like (for example on an island in the Pacific).

Weaponry is also exhibited at the U.S. Air Force Museum, including various missiles, including those of a nuclear variety (no, they are not operable). We saw bombs in the line of those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as other missiles. There are also models with uniforms and medals exhibited dating back almost 100 years.

The Presidential Aircraft Exhibit and the Research and Development Hangars are located in an active area of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Reservations must be made for the bus which will take you to this area. We had to produce a government -issued photo identification for all of the adults in the party to go to this area. An original passport (not a copy) is required for foreign visitors. A ratio of one adult for every two children is also required. These tours tend to fill up early so its best to plan to arrive at the U.S. Air Force Museum as early as possible in the day. The shuttle bus schedule varies depending on the time of year.

We enjoyed this most of all. The various versions of Air Force One exhibited here covered a lot of history.

PROS: educational and fun exhibits, nice gift shop, free!
CONS: none
