Owner description: 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.

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

Great place to go back in time and see military aviation from infancy to now. Outside exhibits are interesting also.

Up close and personal with some of the finest, historical examples of Army Aircraft and Aviation related items that exist anywhere in the world! EACH aircraft has a "story" to tell, and you can feel the Pilot's spirits in the memorial room! You won't leave as you came, guaranteed!

You get to go into the belly of one of the troop carriers, and sit in the seats our military guys used. Kids loved this.This is a working base where training is constantly going on. Gift shop had very interesting memorabilia.

Very cool and educational place to occupy the family's attention on something besides personal electronics for a couple of hours. There are a couple of hands-on things to do in this clean and well-designed museum, but it could benefit greatly with some modern, interactive activities e.g. a flight simulator. Go for it!

Our family of 7 spent almost 3 hrs in the museum. The kids (9 and 13) were in awe of all the planes and helicopters. The facility is huge. So much military history in one place. Two floors of things to look at, read, watch on video, etc. The kids liked getting into the cargo plane and hooking themselves into... More
