National Airline Museum Reviews & Ratings
We visited on a free kid's day and were welcome at no charge. That was the highlight. This is essentially a junk yard of past TWA items. While there is some interesting items, they're worth paying to see. Unless you're into aviation history, I'd pass on this one.
Very inexpensive. Great museum wonderful staff. Really enjoyed the tour. You are not supposed to sit or touch much of anything on planes so you have to be mindful of you bring kids. Honestly, if they do everything is covered in plastic so it's safe. Definitely worth a trip.
Good museum for learning about passenger aviation in the 1940s-1960s era. It was really interesting to walk aboard the two planes and compare them to the air-travel experience of today. I also enjoyed the gallery with the old uniforms, photos, and other artifacts. The tour guide was very knowledgeable but focused perhaps a bit too heavily on technical details. The admission is supposed to be $8 for adults but we were charged $10 each.
Great place to visit when coming to Kansas City, a great place to visit if you like history, airplanes, and tech, a great place to come down to. Great learning opportunities to.
Finally got a chance to check this museum out. It is so much more than what I thought it was going to be! The history that just exudes from the entire hangar, let alone the wonderful aircraft they have... This place is absolutely unappreciated and should not be missed. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and was just the right amount of tell you about things and let you check it out yourself. Support this museum, these are the kinds of places that are few and far between these days.
