There are a ton of great air museums all over the world, from the Royal Air Force Museum in London to the Pima Air & Space Museum in Arizona and the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington, D.C. There's a case to be made, however, that the best of them all is in Dayton, Ohio. There on the grounds of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force has a massive collection of rare and important aircraft from the entire history of aviation.

It a great museum! We go there every year (excluding Covid). Some very cool things there!

I was just there! Went to see the DaVinci exhibit. I only live about 12 minutes away.

Excellent museum. Live only 30 minutes away. Free. Normally busy. Used to meet WW2 veterans there. Went to some of the Doolittle group reunions including the last. 4 hangers, plus some outside stuff. Highly recommend.

We go several times a year. We will walk several buildings and leave. When we go back, we pick up where we left off

One of the best.

I even got to talk to two Phantom drivers about their time on the F4 from the mid sixties through to the eighties. What an eye opener!

Fascinating place! I've been there twice and spent most of a day there each time.

Agree one of the best anywhere.
