Don't waste your time or money. This is "supposed" to be "Florida's Air Museum" Florida tax money in the form of grants are being wasted here. I've been there before and have learned that they have sold off aircraft to support exhorbitant staff salaries. I know several of the donors personally and they are shocked to find out that their...

My grandson, his father and I love this museum. It is not the Smithsonian, but it still has a lot to offer. Planes of all ages and descriptions except of course large commercial ones are on display. As a former engineer who worked at Cape Kennedy and the Apollo missions, it is a joy to see one of the "smaller"... More

Although quite a small place, they do have an interesting collection of planes and aviation memorabilia. It’s worth checking before you go, the day we visited there was a private event being held, but they very kindly allowed us to look around nevertheless.

Nice write up on aviation history in Florida, so much Howard Hughes artifacts that kept me busy for hours while my kids played in the simulators and drew pictures. Lots of very... More
