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 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.

Mostly helicopters (what would you expect, right?) but also lots of fascinating early fixed wing. Great mix of cool looking stuff for the kids and history for those who are interested. Displays are very well done. Interactive stuff was a little lame for these days, but I don't imagine in this era of tax cutting and sequestration the museum gets... More

Great place to take the whole family, especially the kiddos they will love it. Very nice display of old aircraft and I believe that it is free can't remember if it cost anything it's not much if it does.

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
