I took the kids a while back. My daughter texted her mom to please help her. My son on the other hand loved it. I found it very informative. The interior of the building is nicely down and packed full of information and great examples.

Truly amazing museum. Being able to get up close to the numerous, amazing planes was fun for the whole family. I can't believe it's free! Be careful using Google or Apple maps to get there. The routes take you into the military base instead of to the museum. Luckily, the base entrance has a guest center that provided us the... More

Visit one of the Florida Panhandle's amazing military museum, the Air Force Armament Museum. Veterans, take a trip back in history. Non-vets, see what your daddy, your granddaddy, your brother and uncle did while in the military service of the USA. Bring your camera.

We went to this museum on a day it was raining. Time well spent! They had plenty to look at. Planes are all around the building outside along with a few inside. Inside the building they have all kinds of artifacts and articles from all wars and military operations. We really did enjoy it. My four year old son loved... More

Had an hour to kill before leaving town. Outstanding museum full of missiles, munitions, and airplanes. Pretty much everything for everybody, museum is well kept up and helpful staff happy to answer questions. Great place for any age group.

A great variety of war planes and helicopters outside and a great variety of planes and bombs on the inside. It's free. There are some movies and plane simulators if you want to see just how many switches and dials an Air Force pilot needs to look at. It's a fine museum if you have an hour or two to... More

Loved this place. The airplane all show where they flew and the crew that was on them. It's a museum ran on donations.

We have visited the museum twice; once before kids and then with kids. We really enjoyed it both times. Anyone interested in military history, aviation, or just wanting to see some neat things should consider a visit. Plan on making a day of it as there is much to see.

we loved the walking tour of AF aircraft and the plaques which described. There are interesting displays inside and the museum is not too big as to be overwhelming.
