Things to do at Frontiers of Flight Museum Dallas

Local Mom, Gwendolyn visited the Museum with 4 kids under the age of 8, so our perspective for this review is based on the perspective of a parent of younger children.

The Museum is all inside so it’s a great option for rainy days or very hot days.

Your admission gets you into the museum & the play area

The museum is geared towards older kids – probably like 8+ – whereas the playground area is geared towards kids 6 and under. I think this is probably their biggest issue.

We enjoyed it overall as a morning outing, but the museum part was more just fun to look at and quickly walk through for my kids (too much text and way too deep into aviation history through the years – literally from the Wright Brothers to hot air balloons, to WWII, to NASA!).

My kids did like that there were lots of airline seats you could sit in, and all the airplanes hanging from the ceiling are really pretty cool!
So we did like it, but it was for sure a museum where I was reading them most of the information.

The playground area is on the other side of the building & consists of an airtower to climb up, a few little play airplanes to climb, and then a big aircraft to climb in and “drive” and then a side on the other side to exit.

As Dallas Love Field is a base for Southwest Airlines in Texas, the plane is made up of Southwest Airlines parts.

There is a Gift shop where you can buy gifts and toys for kids who love all things aviation.
