Wings Over The Rockies Air And Space Museum Reviews & Ratings
Very good. All aspects were phenomenal. Service was great. Setting was superb. A nice clean environment to view all kinds of aerospace items. The one problem is its size. It is not a very big place, the whole area has stuff on the sides, but the middle of the place is entirely empty.
Great air and space museum. A little leaning toward military. Not a ton of really modern places but a good collection of Vietnam era and older machines. And nice facts to go along with them. Appreciated the exhibits dedicated to the history of flight in Denver/Colorado as well
We spent a couple hours here with our young kids (4 and 6 yrs old). They enjoyed the kids area and the simulator. My husband, whom has his private pilot's license, very much enjoyed the simulator. They had a lot of cool planes to look at. Would have given it five stars if they had more hands on exhibits and/or if they would've had planes you could get in to. A few looked like they may allow people in them, but not on the day we visited. Overall, I am glad we visited during our stay in Denver.
Oh, where to begin!!! The absolute marvel of this MAGNIFICENT museum
It's a bit overpriced for what you get. But we had a good time. Cashiers could work on being more courteous and professional. I appreciated the ability to be able to walk beneath some of the aircraft to get a good view.
