I took my husband here as one of his Birthday gifts. He totally loved the place! Yes it's small but, if you take the time to explore it is a wealth of information and memorabilia. We were there several hours exploring! The staff is also pleasant and happy to offer assistance!

Although fairly small the Florida Aviation Museum really "packs in" the unusual and familiar in one place. There are some rare and unique aircraft on display, and some exhibits to bring on nostalgia as well. If you work in Aviation or have an intrest in the same, take some time to visit. Especially now that Fantasy of Flight has "gone... More

This attraction is well advertised in all of the tourist information materials which "float" around Orlando, Kissimmee and environs. Regrettably, what we saw was not what we had expected from the promotional material. The museum is quite remote from all other "things to do" places in the area but, with a vehicle and a GPS, not that difficult to find.... More

This is a nice, small aviation museum that is worth an hour or two if you are in the Lakeland area. Some really interesting airplanes, but nothing to compare with the big museums. They have a big an famous air show in April every year.

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...
