Very crowded. Cars parked in overflow lots and along roads. The air show was spectacular. It makes you proud of USA.

As an Air Force Retiree it was great to go down memory lane. It's a must for everyone to visit. You won't regret it.

Armament generally means bombs of one sort or another. This place includes the aircraft that carried the armament and aircraft that enhanced armament delivery systems. And one of my favorites, the SR-71. Many other aircraft are also on display. Highly recommended.

If you are into military stuff then you have to stop by, its free and have quite a display of planes that have their own history by themselves... Very interesting and educational...

As the names implies, this museum is geared towards armaments. We enjoyed the looking over everything. it has two levels with an elevator, Outside there are several planes and helicopters. Remember this is Florida and it can be very hot outside and rain.

The first thing you notice is all the HUGE planes just parked outside. As a 24 year old I was even saying "wow look at that! So cool!" Inside is a little dull but has some cool history in it. Good stop for kids and good rainy day activity.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit as a family to the armament museum. It is free (yay!), but they do accept donations. A veteran volunteer greeted us at the entrance and provided maps of the museum and was very informative. Lots of history here, even a nazi flag! Plenty of planes and helicopters outside to view from WWII on.
