Went here with two toddler aged kids and two adults. There were enough interesting exhibits for all ages. A lot of hands on activity and a couple of rides including a flight simulator. The staff was helpful even though their English was limited.

The museum was huge and full of beautiful aircraft. My favorite part - the display of hundreds and hundreds of model airplanes from around the world.

My husband and I had a good time visiting this museum. There were a lot a of interactive things for both of us to do beyond reading about the history of each item.

We visited the Museum on the day that Typhoon LionRock was expected. The wind and rain were already picking up a bit but since it was still morning, and the typhoon wasn't expected until late afternoon, figured we had time to visit, and we were right. Checked out the outside airplanes first - interesting displays. Then inside. Loved the old... More

Great spot with superb scientific exploration for the kids. Top notch aviation museum that really wouldn't be expected in such a rural spot. Misawa's aviation history makes this a real gem.

This is a family and kid friendly spot! My children loved the science area upstairs and getting ice cream from the snack bar afterwards. When the weather is good there is a wonderful area outside for playing and running around. Buy the "passport" (as my Japanese friend calls it) which is the year long pass, it pays for itself after...

It's a great place to bring kids on a rainy or snowy day. The park would be a great place for a family picnic. Make sure to check out the jets parked outside.

You can see all kinds of airplanes and sit or walk through some of them. They have flight simulation, and a whole lot of science stuff to try and experiment with. A lot of fun not only for kids. The weather should be good, because they have the most planes outside in a park.

There is lots to see here. We love this spot. It makes a great winter outing. The displays are interesting, lots of hands on exhibits and classes. This was fun for our entire family - from 4 - 50. The setting is beautiful for a picnic if the weather is nice. We judge all other air museums by out memories... More
