#6 Thing to Do in Dallas with Kids
Visit the Frontiers of Flight Museum. We have been for birthday parties and loved it, and you can also go on your own. It is so fun to walk through the museum, sit in the jumper seat, see a moon rock, climb the flight tower, and talk to your kids about how flight has changed. At the museum I learned the vital role Dallas/Fort Worth played during World War II. There was a flying school in Terrell, Texas where 2,000 British fighter pilots were trained.
From their website, "Dallas Love Field was the base for the 5th Ferrying Wing, including the 601st Women's Army Service Pilots (WASP). These gallant women flew all types of aircraft including the B-24 "Liberator", manufactured at Consolidated's Fort Worth plant, the P-51 "Mustang" manufactured at the North American plant at Grand Prairie, and the P-38 "Lightning" which was modified at Dallas Love Field's Lockheed Mod Center."
This is a pretty cool and educational place to take your kids.
