We always like to stop here when we are in Destin. Has a good number of aircraft outside, plus some nice displays indoors. Kids like seeing the big guns, bullets, and missles. An easy ride out from Destin, and we usually ride back through Ft. Walton or Niceville to get out of the "touristy" areas.

Free attraction and friendly staff. Lots of big planes outside and cool photo ops. I think it is worth the stop to see the big planes and other gear.

Good alternative for the beach if you need a day off or have questionble weather. Tour the outside exhibits, then cool down in the inside. Walking is easy. There is a lot of information but you do...

My children (4 y/o twins and 6 y/o) enjoyed the museum. Lots of planes and helicopters on the outside to look at and walk around. The inside had exhibits of missiles, planes, gear and even 2 flight trainers. We went though it quickly but it's 3 days later and they are still talking about it. Great piece of history. Highly...

It was nice and you can't beat the price ( free), but it just wasn't my thing. We liked looking at the big planes and helicopters but nothing for younger kids to do, just look at stuff.

Visited this museum with my 14 yr old daughter and 18 yr old son and veteran husband. We enjoyed the greeting we received and all the great history. There are two fighter jet cockpits to sit in. My son even donated to the museum on the way out.

This is one of our finest local history spots. Every time we go, either for an Air Force retirement ceremony or just visiting with friends and family, we are impressed with the volunteer staff, upkeep and cleanliness, and updated installments of Air Force and other military history...For all ages.
