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

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
