Although quite a small place, they do have an interesting collection of planes and aviation memorabilia. It’s worth checking before you go, the day we visited there was a private event being held, but they very kindly allowed us to look around nevertheless.

This was a wonderful visit. They have a great many cool old planes, engines and there is a small section devoted to the history of Howard Hughes with some of his personal scrapbooks and writings as well as some of his Hollywood pilot gear that he wore when filming one of his movies. There is interesting history about biplanes and... More

We decided to stop by here on our way to Mickeyland and stayed the whole day! It was a nice suprise. There were things for the whole family. Nice write up on aviation history in Florida, so much Howard Hughes artifacts that kept me busy for hours while my kids played in the simulators and drew pictures. Lots of very... More

Here's a place where you can see a superior display of aircraft, engines and history. It holds many experimental aircraft and one-of-a-kind planes. Especially interesting are the Navy F2Y Sea Dart and the YF2Y-1 Hyperbipe. A really interesting and informative place to spend an afternoon. Call ahead for special programs and seasonal activities, and you can visit individually or call... More

A really absorbing (even to those like my wife not deeply interested in flying) and well presented local museum. Not stuffy or boring - good history of local airport development and aircraft over the years. Not expensive. Good any time or for a rainy day.

A very interesting collection of aircraft and power plants. The cut-away of the jet engines is very enlightening. There are hands on displays and flight simulators. Great for adults and children alike. Spent 3 hours and could have stayed longer!

I have taken my grandchildren there twice. The facility is made up of several buildings holding displays of aircraft and memorabilia. Besides the main exhibit hall are several hangars with vintage and present day aircraft. Many of the local owners are there and are happy to talk to you. We went by a restoration building and knocked on the door.... More

We attended this year's airshow and enjoyed our time there. Saw lots of things and enjoyed the friendliness of the workers. I just have a few suggestions for those who are organizing this event. With the weather being so hot for most of the days, the portable washrooms became unbearable to use. There needed to be wash stations at every... More
