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.

Spent a great afternoon with the kids at the Aviation Museum. Just enough information and history to learn, but still things for the kids to crawl in and click on to have fun. Great little museum if you're in the area.

Ft. Rucker is the home of Army Aviation and a visit to the museum takes you back in time. Lots of helicopters and planes of the past. A wonderful history trip for young and old. A definite "must see"!!

I come from a Boeing family so I've been to multiple flight museums. I really enjoy meandering around this museum with family and friends looking at the various aircrafts and other flight related items. I really like the displays they have with mannequins depicting a realistic setting of how the aircraft would have been used. The one thing that I... More

My husband was stationed at Fort Rucker during Vietnam War so this was a must stop on our trip. The museum has tons of helicopters and planes. They plan to expand in the future so probably will go back one day.

We stopped here on the way to Nashville and it was well worth the stop. This was a great display of the history of Army Aviation going back before the creation of the Air Force. The majority of the aircraft displays are helicopters including the first Presidential helicopter. Anyone with an interest in American history from a military perspective would... More
