4 Hours At DFW, Cool Things To Do There?

Thu Apr 28, 2005 3:49 am

Howdy all, I will be taking my first trip to DFW tomorrow basically so I can just get in the air again, but also because I have never been to DFW. So my question is what is a good restaurant to eat at and what are some cool things to do at DFW? Is there a good spotting location from inside the terminal, an observation deck, airplane stores? Any seasoned traveler to DFW or anyone who has been there please help.

Thanx a mill.

AmericanAirlines® C.R. Smith Museum

Hours & Directions | Booking Events | Gifts That Last A Lifetime

The AmericanAirlines C. R. Smith Museum is much more than a museum. It's a sight-and-sound, hands-on, window-seat look at the world of flight. It's an adventure offering you a chance to hear, see, touch and be a part of the exciting aviation industry. Best of all, it's a great place for the entire family - or any group - to enjoy time and time again.

The C.R. Smith Museum, just south of DFW Airport, is a one-of-a-kind adventure into the world of commercial aviation. The museum opened in July 1993 and is dedicated to past and present American Airlines employees and C.R. Smith, longtime American Airlines president and aviation pioneer.

The museum is a non-profit organization funded by the generous gifts of corporate partners, AMR employees, AMR retirees and museum friends. The museum is operated by the C.R. Smith Aviation Museum Foundation and emphasizes hands-on learning through hands-on displays. Get directions to visit the C.R. Smith Museum Gift Shop.
