I traveled alone for a meeting, had some down time and stopped in. Very interesting exhibits and really cool to see actual planes. Admission is free (donations are accepted) and it wasn't too crowded, which is nice.

Relatively small museum but worth a second trip if I get back to Ft Walton. Several aircraft also on static display most of which one can get up close to peer into and around. Displays were very helpful in explanations making a tour guide unnecessary - though I don't think that's an option anyway. While I typically don't buy tourist-type... More

the Air Force Armament Museum was a great stop for us - we had a day with little to do and we are glad we chose the museum to fill that day.

Small and filled with older displays, but very interesting. Well worth the visit. Close to the beaches and a pleasant way to spend some free time.

A very nice stop whether you have kids or not. Lots of things to see and do including an array of older aircraft. I would recommend it no matter what branch of the armed forces you served in!

Excellent way to spend a few hours getting acquainted with the history of US Air Force armaments. The museum also has a very good display of various aircraft, model planes, a wall of Medal of Honor winners and a collection of small arms. The displays are very well done and very informative. The only downside .... all restrooms under renovation... More

neither my husband nor myself knows anything about the Air Force, planes, bombs, armament, you get the picture. The weather in Destin (where we are staying)was rainy and we had a free afternoon to check out the area so we looked on Trip Advisor which took us to this museum. What good advise. The museum was layed out nicely. It... More

We decided to visit the museum since we were in Fort Walton Beach. Some of the planes outside brought back memories. The AC130 gun ship I remember from the days in Vietnam. Impressive display of fire power at night. The SR71 taking off and disappearing over our apartment in Okinawa. The B17 that I took a flight in and stood... More

Good afternoon or morning outing for a dose of aviation and weapon history since WW2. Plus, it's free! Don't be surprised to see some type of official USAF ceremony going on-- retirement, change of command, etc.
