A very nice museum. Due to the air show it was quite crowded, so we intend to go back on a "slower day" and take in the exhibits. This is definitely a stop on any airplane buffs list as well as anyone interested in not only the history of flight but the history of the World Wars. Parking is a... More

I like planes and this place is good for that. A lot of history on Republic which was here at this airport from the beginning. The displays are good and just a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this museum. It was more than I expected. Irwin, a World War 2 veteran, told us a personal story of his experience as a navigator during a mission. He was captivating! We sat in a small room that was a replica of the room where he learned of his mission. Then, we... More

I brought my two young daughters to the American Airpower Museum recently after seeing a broadcast about their exhibits featuring the roles of women in WWII. I was pleasantly surprised to see how prominently displayed the exhibits about these extraordinary women were, as well as the quality of these displays. I have travelled to many other aviation museums around the... More

We went here Memorial Day Weekend for the air show. It was fantastic! The exhibits were very well done including the special exhibits on Women during the War. We got to see the Corsair, Mustang and other World War II planes. The museum also hosted the United States Air Force precision demonstration team, the Thunderbirds. Many of the owners of... More

Took my son to see the planes. The staff is very attentive. We had a private tour and our guide allowed up to literally climb all over vintage planes from WWII. Many were built on the island. This is a great place to take a 7 year old boy!

If you're into warbirds this is more than worth the trip, especially on the weekends when they fly. This isn't about planes on static display. The Corsair, Mustang, Warhawk and more all take to the air. Plus you're standing in a piece of history--the hanger where they actually built P-47 Thunderbolts. Great for kids and adults.

Very well done exhibits, many are 'hands on'. The staff is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the airshows they put on.
