If you are interested in aviation and the history of Bell, this Museum is not to be missed. The experienced staff and well laid out artifacts keep you interested and entertained. The P-39 exhibit is a masterpiece.

Western New York has a rich history associated with flying with Bell Aircraft starting in Niagara Falls. Many aircraft were produced for World War Two. The Areospace Museum has a good collection representing that history. Self directed tour with docents available for questions. Everything is well marked so the self directed tour is very informative. We plan to go back... More

It was very hot outside & would have been better if the air conditioning was working better but they had fans all over. The different aircrafts were very interesting!

The museum had beautifully restored air planes and helicopters from the early years of aviation right up to the space race. We were especially pleased to see the work of Glenn Curtiss whose museum in Hammondsport is... More

I have to give this small museum high marks. We love everything to do with flight. Even though this museum is not on the level with the Air Force Museum in Ohio, or the U.S Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, it is worth seeing. Here you can see Western New York's contributions to air and space travel. There... More

I have seen the progression over the years of how the Niagara Aerospace Museum moved from the Summit Mall, to the Casino, and finally to its new location at the Niagara Falls Airport and I am happy to see it finally has a permanent home. Western New York has a lot of Aviation History and this museum highlights the many... More
