Location: Creve Coeur Airport- 3127 Creve Coeur Mill Rd, Maryland Heights MO 63146
Adults cost $10, kids under 12 are $5, and kids under 5 years old are free. I would call before you go, as they have seasonal hours. During the school year they are only open on the weekends.
Why is it called Creve Coeur Airport if it's in Maryland Hgts??? Well it gets its name from nearby Creve Coeur Lake. They are a non profit and have over 50 antique planes in 4 separate hangars.
We saw about 6 different planes take off, the kids loved watching them!
My daughter brought her Planes book, she's obsessed with planes and even had a 3rd birthday Dusty Crophopper party.
These little planes are RC planes
My daughter figured out how to make the ailerons go up and down. It blew their minds.
This is an old Cardinal baseball team plane!
In addition to old planes they have some old cars too.
This is the only time they'll ever be in a Mercedes I'm sure.

If you have kids who like airplanes I think they would enjoy this place. There are a few other options around town for airplanes but I think this is the best one. There is the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum in Cahokia, and the Prologue Room in Berkeley. But both of those places are mostly planes you can't touch or play in which is boring. Every year an air show comes to town also, usually at Scott Air Force Base or at Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield.
