The gentlemen who showed us around were both wonderful with our kids (ages 4-9), engaging them at their level and allowing them to interact with all of the pieces in the museum to their hearts' content. It was truly an excellent and memorable experience for our family.

Housed in the historic Curtis-Wright Hangar 2 (listed in the National Register of Historic Places) is the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum in Cahokia, IL, which houses a considerable amount of aviation and aerospace memorabilia and photos. Not many places where you will see a pilot license signed by Orville Wright! They also have several vintage space suits, models, and a few aircraft and engines. Sad to see there are insufficient funds available for the repairs to this fine old building which houses so much history.

My kids had fun with the simulators and watching planes take off and land.

Learned how old space tech would detect fire through gamma rays (can pick up a flame on the other side of your body blocking the sensor, which he showed us). The guide was very knowledgable and told us about many of the pieces on display. It is small- but a great stop and we even got to see the gold sink in Howard Hughes' old JetStar.

The kids enjoyed this. It was pretty small, but really interesting. The tour guide was excellent.
