Really enjoyed seeing the planes and reading their history. The building is very nice, clean, well-lit, and air conditioned. I wish we could go into the B17! So neat to see them all.

This is a rather small museum. There are some great aircraft on display though. Unfortunately you cannot get very close to them. There are ropes around them all. But nonetheless, its a good museum. Worth checking out. ,

Certainly not the biggest museum of its kind but it is very well maintained...everything is roped off and you can't get very close to the aircraft...been allowed much closer at other museums, even allowed inside in some but not here, at least not this visit.

Definitely stop by here if you like to see historical planes. Very clean and a nice gift shop. They even have flight experiences but we didn't do one.

Our 5 year old and 3 year old boys loved going here. Didn't take but 30-45 minutes to see it all but they were happy. My wife and I enjoyed it as well.

If you have a passion for aviation, it would be hard press for you not to fall for the charm of the Lone Star Flight Museum. The planes have so much history and the engineering alone is mind boggling that we build such marvelous engines...More

It was amazing to see the planes up close and to read the history of each. The volunteer staff is very knowledgeable about the history and how each plane was used for different reasons. To actually see the B17 and realize the gunners had very...More
