Over the past couple of years we’ve had a chance to visit a bunch of museums dedicated to aviation and flight.
Aviation museums always seem to feel quite unique compared to your typical museum. They can also be a lot of fun for everyone. The best part is that many of them are interactive and you can even get the chance to go on some of the planes on display.
Here are the aviation museums that we’ve visited over the past couple of years:
- The Barbados Concorde Experience
- South Dakota Air & Space Museum
- Mitchell Gallery of Flight at General Mitchell Airport
- Frontiers of Flight Museum at Dallas Love Field
I came across a slide show from CNNTravel featuring the World’s 14 Best Aviation Museums. The museums listed sounds pretty amazing and I would love to visit some of them in the future.
Of the 14 museums listed, 5 are located in the United States. I visited one of the U.S. museums (in bold) that made the list many years back and I’d be willing to bet that many of you have too.
Here is the list of Best Aviation Museums:
- Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum Washington, D.C.
