Tour this aviation museum

Terrific tour led by a couple of former pilots. Each has extensive knowledge of flying, aviation and the Texas Panhandle. Definitely recommend it.

This is a guided tour that lasts around 2 hours depending on the size of the group and number of questions. But the time goes pretty fast as the tour works it's way through the variety of aircraft exhibits. You can get in several, but not all, of the aircraft and helicopters on site. The exhibits are both inside and... More

I enjoyed the old-timers that lead the tours. They clearly have passion and knowledge about the aircraft. The kids enjoyed being able to enter the aircraft.

I've always had a soft spot for air museums. This one is small and right by the Amarillo Airport. There are mostly civilian airplanes and a few military ones. There is a NASA training jet for shuttle pilots and other NASA artifacts. The tour is given by docents who actually give a nice lecture. Pretty friendly too and you weren't... More

Not a large museum but a really interesting guided tour by a very knowledgable gentleman. Interesting to get in the DC3, but unfortunately the nasa aircraft was closed as it is outside in the snow. No admission fee but donations taken, I hope that the enthusiastic volunteers get the funds that they need.

I have visited this museum several times. After the first time, I had to come back with more guests! They also loved the place. The museum has several interactive exhibits, you can actually get into several of the planes on display. And the tour guides are thoroughly knowledgeable about all of the planes and history on display. Know a M.A.S.H... More

We enjoyed our tour of this museum. It was guided by a gentleman who knows about planes in general and about the planes on display in particular. There were military planes and helicopters as well as an ultralight and some other aircraft. We were able to go into the planes and press buttons and tilt rotors on the helicopters. My... More

The two elders giving the tours are a lot of fun and give interesting information. Visitors are able to board at least 2 of the planes, sometimes more. Visitors get to see an item that was on a space shuttle, a MASH heli, a NASA pilot plane, and more. It's a neat visit for a dose of history and a... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this museum, you get a great personal tour of older aircraft, and even have the opportunity to go on the DC3 and NASA aircraft. No admission fee, but they do take donations. Well worth the time!!!!
