So much aviation history in a small area. Please be sure to make donation as admission is free. A lot to be learned, interactive exhibits as well. Great place for young and old.

A lot of planes here to see. if you are a plane guru you will love it. I took my dad down here the second time and he loved it as well, being a Vietnam Vet. he was around the 105 they had in inside. I have been to NAS in Pensacola and I would recommend both museums

If you are traveling on Highway 85 South to Ft Walton Bch stop in and have a look around the first thing you will see is the fastest aircraft ever flown the SR - 71 right out front. Very impressive sight as well as the other static display aircraft. History buffs we really enjoy the time you spend.

I love that our community supports history and the military. Coming here always gives me a since of pride for my country and for my freedoms as an American. This is always a place I take visiting guests from out of town. It os both fun and historical!

Great place to visit, budget friendly, & allows the kids to see something in real life that they have otherwise only seen in books or on TV.
