We have visited the Hiller Aviation Museum on a few occasions. The displays are very interesting. There is so much aviation history to explore during your visit. We really enjoyed all of our visits to the museum.

The kids learnt how to fly a plane using a flight simulator. They also participated in a paper plane making competition in the lobby.

If going with a young child, buy something small for him/her at the gift shop to help keep them occupied while you go nuts on the chopper sim ;+) Wish we could have stayed longer but I had a flight lesson next door.

Well done aviation museum. Lots of vintage aircraft. (The initial flight stuff not the typical WWII stuff). Very clean and organized. An hour or so should do it. Very clean and slow paced. Not expensive at all.

My son has been here 3-4 times in the last year. Simple and easy to get to with a wide array of both old and experimental aircraft.
