The U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of over 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. Approximately 50 beautifully restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are proudly displayed both inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the Museum's grounds. The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.

This museum has a nice collection helicopters and airplanes. Some are one-of-a-kind. Unfortunately there was not much information displayed about any of them. The docent who we talked to knew something about 1/2 of the items we asked about. The place is not being maintained very well either. They were out of brochures describing the aircraft outside. The women's restroom... More

I recently went to a graduation ceremony at Ft. Rucker and while I was there my husband and I went to the museum...since we hadn't been in years. If you're not into helicopters and military history then this is not the place for you. This museum is a bit on the small side, but they do a really good job... More

The U.S. Army Aviation Museum at Ft. Rucker, Alabama is an outstanding opportunity to see army aviation history up close. Beginning with a Wright Flyer, progressing through Spads and onto helicopters, the history of Army aviation is exhibited here. While there are no WWII fixed wing aircraft from the Army Air Corps except an L-4, every helicopter flown in service... More

You either need to pass the gate of Daleville to get inside of Fort Rucker to see this museum. There are plenty of model for those Aviation enthusiasts to drool over and enjoy reading the history of those airframes. Beside Aircrafts, it also cover those in Medical field and Air Traffic Control simulation as well. You can also shop for... More

I've had the opportunity to visit several times and have always enjoyed learning something new. Even attended several ceremonies held at the museum for retiring officers/ NCOs. Great exhibits too! There is a gift shop with many great items for sale that are patriotic and reflect the pride of our Army Aviators. On one occasion, LtCol Ollie North (ret-USMC) was... More

Excellent museum of Army Aviation history from World War I to present. If you like helicopters this is the place to go. From early Sikorsky to Piasecki to Bell. Includes modern too.

This is one of the most visited attractions in the Wiregrass. The museum is well laid out with reasonable explanations of what you are looking at. This gives you a good understanding of Army Aviaition from its beginning to the present time.
