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

We called and made an appointment to visit the air museum Sunday 2/23/14. We were able to talk to one of the volunteers who told us to come by, she was doing a tour. (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

This museum is a hidden gem. Full of WWII items and historical information. Flight 19, which disappeared in the Burmuda Triangle, started here. There are hundreds of airplane models and the volunteer staff is wonderful.Great resource for High school or College students doing history projects. They run on donations and volunteer help. Right next door to the animal shelter.

By all means go to this place. It is really a labor of love for Dr. John & Minerva. They really need your support. Anyone who has any interest in our nation's history needs to go. Check w/them when they are open & buy some souvenirs. Also, be careful when you turn on your navigator as it will direct you... More
