No worth a trip if you're not already in the airport. But before you go thru security, take 10 minutes and walk through this small display. Very informative, well laid out, and small - it makes you a little more knowledgeable on the Space Coast.

Very small museum that is educational and has some interesting items in it. Wouldn't make a special trip to see it but nice to spend some time at while you are at the airport anyway. Only open certain daytime hours.

Not something you would make a special trip to see but is worth walking thru if you are trying to kill time until your plane arrives.

Great displays but it is very small. Nice place to hang out for 20 minutes waiting for a flight. Not always open.

Won't take very long to see. Get to the airport a few minutes early and check out the air museum. Not sure it's worth a special trip to airport

It's in the airport, so while you're waiting for your flight or someone to get off a flight, go visit. There's lots of local treasures to enjoy.

A great free museum inside the airport. It's outside of security, so you can go in and see lots of nice exhibits on aerospace travel and it's history.

The Air Museum recalls the WWII era in and around Melbourne. Highly interesting photos tell the story and paint an excellent historical account of NAS Melbourne now Melbourne International Airport! Interested veterans, aeronautical enthusiasts and local historians would enjoy this free exhibit. Also, just down...More
