This FREE museum has a lot of interesting things to look at, including a replica of the atomic bombs used in WWII. Lots of interesting planes etc. - good gift shop too. Small, but you can see a lot without it taking up your entire day!

This museum is filled with real fighter plains and helicopters. Original training cabins and a theater that shows an excellent documentary of the developments in Eglin Airforce Base and the U.S. military. I left proud of our armed forces and wishing that more young men and women could visit this place and learn about the long tradition on honor and... More

We were in town visiting family and our first time to the Fort Walton area. We saw this museum as a drive by and stopped. It was an awesome surprise. We all learned a lot from the Veteran who greeted us at the door. Our children 17 and 15 really enjoyed it as well.

For people who like everything about airplanes and army, it's one of the best places in North Florida, with Pensacola museum. Good choice of airplanes, lot of explanations, you always find the answers to your question... Very nice, a place to visit! And lot of big Air Force airplanes around the museum.

This has to be one of the best military museums we have ever visited. The aircraft on display were great to see as were the many interesting displays in doors. The displays are very well organized and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Would recommend for families or couples that are on holiday in the Fort Walton area. Best of... More

From the 30 minute movie tracking the history of U.S. military planes to the "up-close" and personal hands-on exhibit of the many planes on site, we enjoyed seeing how much progress has been made with each new model. Volunteer staff that spoke to us were knowledgeable and very helpful. There's no charge to go through this Museum (but donations are... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum. He's a former Air Force fighter pilot, so it was special to once again see the plane (F-100) he once flew. With all the planes, weapons, and pictures that are displayed, we found it to be a very educational experience. We wished we'd had more time to spend there,... More

Although I was being dragged to this museum it was really very interesting. Hubby loved it. It was full of old planes and educational material about the Air Force and the establishment of Eglin Air Force Base. If you are a plane buff or military bluff you will be in heaven. For others, you might even enjoy it too!

To see the planes actually involved in our history is great. They have a great variety of planes outside and wonderful museum on the inside.
