Carolinas Aviation Museum
For kids or people who love aircraft this place is great!. Small museum, but the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Good collection of old aircrafts and fighter planes. Worlds first aircraft designed by Wright brothers and Flight 1549.
This museum is must see. Really nice people with educated guides. They care about your experience and, oh by the way they have a ton of stuff that you want to see. Check out this museum. Its the anchor store for the airport ... and maybe for Charlotte.

Very impressive airplanes and awesome information. Lived their gift shop with such unique items and the staff was very friendly. My only criticism was that it is a little small, but still impressive.
I found it to be very dark, dismal and boring. I'm rating it 4 stars though because the kids with me LOVED every minute. We went on family day so it was free, if we had paid admission, I would have been sorely disappointed. Restrooms were clean. Nice gift shop.
Visited the museum on a Sunday. I was very surprised at the number of people visiting. It is reasonably priced has a lot of great history. Each exhibit has plenty of posted information and history. My personal favorites we're the Piedmont DC-3 and Miracle on the Hudson. The hangar doesn't have any AC, which wasn't a problem since it was cool outside, but I can see it getting quite warm in the summer months. A must for any aviation enthusiast.
