It was super interesting and had a little something for everyone. We enjoyed the indoor exhibits as well as checking out all the planes/vehicles/bombs outdoors. It was a really great time and it was free!!!

We decided to visit this museum on a rainy day. Lots to see and do here. There is no charge for the museum, although there are numerous boxes to leave donations. The outside exhibits are wonderful. My young children enjoyed reading the plaques and learning about each aircraft. This is definitely a must see if in the area.

We stop here every time we travel to the florida coast to pay respects to those who sacrificed so much. Great displays, awesome aircrafts, and we have been fortunate on 2 occasions to partially view an Air Force awards ceremony, though I am not sure the purpose. Very touching and educational.

It's not huge but there is quite a bit to see. Its fun for 1-2 hours. We went in the afternoon when it was getting very hot outside.

This is one of the best Air Force museums I've been to. Great assortment of aircraft and the displays inside are very nice. The F-15 painting on the wall is just plain creepy how it "follows" you as you walk by it.

My family and I have visited here several times when my girls were smaller. While in town visiting family we stopped by again.This was 4th of July weekend and was a great reminder for our family of how thankful we are to all who have and still serve for our freedom. It is always interesting to see the planes outside... More
