The teen age kids were not into it, but adults and younger kids love the place (especially if you have more than a casual interest in Air Force aircraft).

This place has a lot of air planes, and teaches the history of flight. Tells the story of war planes.

This place was very cool, and a must see in Fort Walton Beach especially if you like big planes or have family in the military. The Prisoners of War Exhibit made me cry, as well as the war hero stories.

Worth the trip if you are vacationing in the Destin area. Museum and grounds are free to visit. Kid-friendly and interesting to children and adults alike.

Our flight was delayed and I happened to notice this great museum. Many planes and display sites to view - we had a great time looking around. Highly recommend!

Great any time or day. I had never been so up close with a P-47 Thunderbolt before. The displays are well done and informative. The Museum runs the gamut of USAAF and USAF armmaments, to include the MOAB.

Fairly wheelchair friendly. 2.5 out of 5. Some places are narrow. A couple of places lack a ramp. 70s building. Free. Self guided. Not interactive. Movie helpful. Displays somewhat antiquated.
