Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum, Cahokia IL

Location: 2300 Vector Dr, Cahokia IL 62206


We visited this museum on the way back from Eckerts. I'm glad we didn't go out of our way to visit because frankly it was a bit disappointing. I didn't really know what to expect, but I thought there would be more real airplanes. In actuality the museum is all indoors. It's just 2 rooms full of memorabilia. My kids are 5 and 3 and they just didn't enjoy looking at things in glass cases. I think this would be better suited for older kids. We saw a lot of historical artifacts which I found interesting, especially the Ozark Airlines area, because my stepmom was a flight attendant for them in the 70's. There is no entrance fee, but the man working did say I was free to leave a donation, which I was glad to do.

 This green and white plane used to belong to Howard Hughes.
