There are lots of aircraft and air museums in Florida but this little museum in Lakeland is one of the better ones. Most interesting you'll find some very unique items from Howard Hughes and some of his many aviation accomplishments and artifacts. There also a variety of very interesting biplanes and stunt planes that will peak the interest of any... More

Smaller museum with limited displays. The front entrance staff (young lady) was very cordial. No place to get a snack, bite to eat, or drink. Was told I could tour the Boeing 727 where I was pretty much asked to leave by the maintenance crew. Good Bob Hoover review as well as Howard Hughes. Nothing much else to see. Or... More

Had a little time to fill while visiting Lakeland on business so I thought I'd visit the Air Museum. I'm so glad I did; everyone was so nice and informative. The exhibits were awesome & this place is well kept. Needed a little more time to fully enjoy so I will go back again.

Small museum but very interesting for the old plane enthusiast. Reasonable pricing. Active duty and retired military get free admission. The personnel are delightful and you have plenty of time to enjoy the many displays. We spent an relaxing afternoon at the museum.

This is a wonderful museum to take a step back in time and see some roots where aviation truly took off. I've already included photos for you to review we hope these help. You can complete the tour of the museum within two hours and that is while you explore every corner the offer. They have a great collection for... More
