“Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We are regular visitors to the museum. I worked in the offices during college and never took advantage of my free admissions...the only thing I would change is the cost. I love to take my children-but I feel it is a bit overpriced unless you are traveling with very patient company.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Went along to the museum whilst attending EAA Airventure, both the event and the museum are simply a must for any aviation fan / enthusiast / pilot. The exhibits at the museum are amazing, from Orville and Wilbur to Rutan and much much more.

Very very good!

“EAA Air Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

If you come thru Oshkosh in late July/early August make it a point to stop in at EAA Air Adenture for the airshow-especially on Saturday when they put on a night air show. There are planes with sparklers, an awesome fireworks show and it tops all of that with a finale of a funny car snd the wall of fire. The past few years they have also done a re-enactment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor that is a must see. I'm not a big airplane person, but this is a million times better than I ever expected it to be!

“GREAT place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

There is something for everyone to see at this museum, and if you have any interest at all in aviation, then you won't want to leave. You will want to come to AirVenture in late July/early August. You can also see the airshows from all around Oshkosh, but being on the grounds for this is spectacular. If you happen to be in the area in early December, you won't want to miss Christmas in the Air, with Santa arriving by helicopter, lots of holiday entertainment, as well as a "taste" of the area with area businesses giving away samples of their foods.
