Nestled inside the National Air Force Museum, it's a good stop. My favorite was taking pics with the space suit. There was a lot of information there, we didn't spend a lot of time there as there was so much to see inside the museum.

What can I say - I go here several times a year, more when people visit. The museum is truly outstanding for an aviation enthusiast. (as is the whole Dayton area) Memphis Belle is there now - OUTSTANDING!

Located inside the National museum of the United States Air Force. Those who who helped design, develope or promote aviation are honored here. There are some fine examples of how airplanes work!

This is a very educational and fun display. Lots of hands on interactive displays. There is a great photo opportunity with the space suit display. We have been to the museum many times and always stop at the Hall of Fame.
