Nice museum, but really didn't have anything new, if you've been to any Air Force museums before. Was a very hot day though, so the walk outside was a little unbearable. Inside was nice though.

This was a great activity for the kids! We went here on a rainy day and it was an excellent and educational experience. My 12 year old son loved it!

This was a fun time for us, with exception of the heat. The outside area has several historic planes/jets to look at and read the history of them. My 8 year old was looking at all of them and deterring how fast they could fly. We settled on the BlackBird!!! Inside has several nice exhibits and demonstrations as well. We... More

Most of the aircraft are displayed outside. The museum building has four aircraft and some great exhibits on the history of aircraft ordinance. Also a small display on the Doolittle Raiders that trained in Eglin. Friendly and helpful staff, good afternoon activity with kids.

Perfect place to stop for a short visit and learn about the USAF. Many aircraft on static display outside and inside. Look up close at bombs, missiles, and ammunition. You could spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours here. They have a small gift shop to get some last minuet souvenirs. Best of all--it's free. This facility is manned... More

Lots of old airplanes, both outside and inside the building. Lots of exhibits inside, lots of history. The facility was very clean, as were the bathrooms. They had self guided tours. A must see if you like any type of aircraft.

Free!! & full of history, lots of stuff to see. The facility was clean & the staff was very friendly. We went on one of our cloudy days when we weren't sure if we could boat or beach it. Very worth the visit. Drop a donation at the door, it can only get better if you do!
