My first time back since 1980 so the number of aircraft has grown and whilst my wife doesn't share my interest in aircraft she found the inside exhibits on armaments really interesting. The inside displays were really well put together and explains how the weapons worked in easy to understand terms.

This museum is full of some of the history of our country which should never be forgotten. Upon entering, my feelings were those of reverence and respect for all who've given their lives or made immense sacrifices for this country and other countries of the world to maintain freedom. My father and three brothers all served in the military -... More

If you have an extra hour or two to browse, the Air Force Armament Museum near Eglin AFB in Fort Walton Beach is worth your time. From several planes on the outside of the building to many interesting exhibits inside the museum, you'll find plenty to look at. I was personally fascinated with their gun & rifle collection - I...

My husband and I took our 20 month old son here and he loved it! There are SO many cool aircrafts to look at outside. And a very rare one is here also. You'll have to go to find out which one! The inside is really neat too. Lots of very interesting artifacts. There is a flight simulator you can... More

If you want to see airplanes, bombs, guns, and cool displays, make time for this. It is free to visit, has a nice gift shop, and because you can touch the planes is super for photos.
