This is an all volunteer run attraction and the passion of the docents and staff is truly admirable. Great memorabilia and wonderful storytelling. A must see for all you locals and aviation enthusiasts like me. Our docent, Gary answered all of our questions and it led to even more great stories. He has extensive aviation experience. If you are a... More

This is a neat museum located at the southwest corner of the airport. There's a room set up to resemble a living-quarters room in the junior BOQ (Batchelor Officers Quarters) such as the one George H. W. Bush stayed in when he was a naval aviator cadet at the naval air station (now Fort Lauderdale International Airport) here during World... More

My husband rated this a 5 for WWII history buffs and those interested in Flight 19. This small museum building is history in itself as it is the only remaining building of the Naval Air Station at Fort Lauderdale. We visited on a Thursday after calling to make sure the museum would be open. There is no admission fee but... More

(call to see if open prior to visit). We arrived and spent about 45 min looking at the displays inside of the building. A lot of... More

If you have any historical interest of Ft Lauderdale's role in WWII then you MUST visit this site. Unknown to the public, this Museum is a labor of love by a dedicated MM22 and his cadre of volunteers. Packed with history and pictures and personal artifacts you could spend the entire day exploring and reading. Signatures fro Medal of Honor... More
