This is a great little museum. Lots of interesting planes. Very educational and very friendly staff. We have been there before while attending sun n fun and they are always improving it. The staff is very helpful and informative. You should plan a stop here.

I traveled across the country to this great event. Worth every effort. Aviation is always exciting but being up front and close to the action makes this event a cut above. Bring the children and start the new pilot population.

The museum is very small which was unfortunate because we specifically set up part of our vacation around this stop. There are some nice experimental planes on exhibit, and a few larger planes outside but not much else. There were workers everywhere setting up for an upcoming event which was extremely distracting.

This is a relatively small museum but that said my attention span for anything is seldom more than an hour anyway! There are several small airplanes inside and it is co-located with an airfield which will keep airspotters happy for hours. There is a static display outside of an F14 Tomcat - awesome plane and getting up close and personal... More

If you are an aviation enthusiast, you will enjoy the museum. It is fairly small (takes about an hour if you look closely at everything) but has alot of neat airplaines to see.

Our 9 year old is really into air planes. I found this place through our ASTC Passport we have with our home museum. It was a good resting point on our drive from Fort Myers Beach to Orlando. It is small, but there is a lot of info packed into this place. They apparently have air shows that are fantastic,... More

If you are into your aircraft then this is where you need to go! I travelled from UK to visit this show and what a show it was. Definately worth the time and money! Facilities are ample, the people and staff are exceptional, and the aircraft are beautiful. I was not left feeling bored once there was something at every... More
