We were lucky to get a groupon admission special here, so we didn't have to pay the full price. That being said, we enjoyed it. Had we paid the full $10/adult price, that would have been different. The museum is very small, but they do have some interesting planes. I am an airplane nut, so I enjoyed it. I would... More

Yes, it is small but very interesting and fun. There are hands on activities for the kids, even us adults had fun. Admission is steep but I think that it is well worth it, because they have a school, camp activities and other functions, so I think it helps everywhere. We took our time and the boys had a great...

I have to report that this did not come up to expectation but there is little to see and aircraft of little interest. People are very nice and try hard to entertain but the exhibits are virtually nil. My problem is having been to Duxford and Hendon this does not rate. If you are in the area by all mean... More

$12 entry fee is steep for the small collection. There are about 18 private, one and two place, private planes inside the building from a broad range of the 20th century. There are a couple of unusual military and research aircraft outside. A separate hanger had several planes being restored by a high school class. I assume museum fees help... More

Bought this as a Groupon for my husband which made the price reasonable. When he walked in he said, "WOW!' He loved looking at all the old planes and reading about their history. I loved the Howard Hughes exhibit. My husband knows exactly who he wants to bring back to the museum.

I visited this Museum over a year ago and I came for their "Grand Opening" last weekend and WOW WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Nothing is the same since last year. They have a whole wall one Florida's contributions to Commercial and Military Aviation, The Florida Aviation Hall of Fame has a new interactive demonstration, Howard Hughes has a large display and...

We bought a Groupon for this museum. So it was $5 a person. I think if I had paid the full admission price I may have felt a little cheated. It was...cute. Very small and the few interactive items they had were very outdated. Also, there are parts of the museum that are closed on the weekends. Seems odd to... More

I took my 5 year old on a whim to see some aviation history. The museum features an indoor hangar facility that house a lot of different exhibits based on aviation. There was even a little plane that kids could climb into and control the yoke and rudder pedals. For old kids and adults there is a computer simulator to... More

We visited during the sun 'n fun airshow and had a great time. We recommend the preferred seating next to the Announcer's Stand. They had benches in the shade and lots of chairs with restrooms nearby and a few tents to sit under. You get an armband for seating so you can come and go as you want. The blue... More
