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.
A decent sized museum that is a must go for anyone interested in the aviation that's in the Denver Area, with even more at Centennial Airport. Mind you, that some exhibits are a bit on the less maintained side and have certainly seen better days. It shouldn't discourage, since the rest of the museum is in very good shape!
