If you’ve got some time to kill before your flight out of Dallas-Ft. Worth there’s no need to visit the airport bar—although that isn’t necessarily the worst idea. Instead keep the rental car for a few extra minutes, and take a visit to the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum right on the outskirts of the airport complex in Fort Worth, Texas.
In a nutshell, the aviation museum shows off the history of American Airlines, and there’s plenty of interactive exhibits that keep you from dozing off during your visit. The museum’s Flightlab reveals how exactly airplanes stay up in the air, along with explaining all other kinds of stuff related to aerodynamics and flying machines. There’s even a Flight Simulator where you can test your skills in the cockpit, but just be sure to call ahead—(817) 967-5904—to ensure it’s open during your visit.
