It was a great place to go with the grandparents. It's not so big that there is a lot of walking but there were so many great things to see and learn.

Found this nice little museum in Lakeland next to Drane field. Very nice little place with some interesting displays, mainly focused on civil aviation. The $12 entry fee is reasonable but it is a small place so expect to see everything in an hour.
