This place was really great and informative. I must admit it wasn’t on my list for things to do on our Florida holiday but we went as my father wanted to go, happy to admit I’m pleased he did as this really was a great experience which I have told everyone about. Our tour guide Chris was extremely knowledgable and friendly. The history at this place is amazing and to go inside the Tico Belle was just unreal. The B52 bomber was also well worth the climb into the cockpit, although if you don’t like small spaces it may not be ideal for some. The admission fee was just over $20 I think but it was worth it to us for a great afternoon.

Would highly recommend paying a visit to this museum and going round with a tour guide.

This museum also has the name of the Tico Air Museum.

If the aircraft had not been crammed so close together in the main museum hangar, it would be a terrific place to visit. Most enthusiasts like to photograph them, but it was impossible the day we were there. Otherwise, I would have given the museum a perfect score.

The staff and the docents, of which there are plenty, are absolutely wonderful. You are offered the services of a docent when you arrive and these guys have wonderful tales to relate. There also are some rarities here, such as an F-5E modified for DARPA, a "shaped sonic boom demonstrator."

My wife climbed up into the cockpit of the B-52 bomber nose section they have on display. I took a look at where she had gone and decided that climb wasn't for me. But do go up if you are healthy or spry enough.

On the route to the Kennedy Space complex, this museum is well worth a couple of hours of your time. The museum section is well-stocked with model planes, uniforms, kit, division insignia, photos. There’s a section for the Battle of Britain. Then you go out into the hangers and find them crammed with aircraft, some undergoing restoration. A separate section is dedicated to those lost in the Vietnam war and then a hanger ful of aircraft used in that conflict. A well-spent 2 hours (if you have an interest in military aircraft).

If you like aircraft, this is a must see. The docents were excellent. I encountered a rotation of three different gentleman. One had worked with NASA and another was an aviator for the Coast Guard and a third who started the introduction in the main building. They were all great. Really happy I took the time to drive down and see the exhibits. The aircraft were from all eras including some helicopters. I even had the opportunity to see where they were restoring several planes. The guys took the time to explain a number of technical aspects about many of the aircraft that I had not known. I spent about 2 or 2 1/2 hours. Very well worth the visit. I will be back this next year. I was there between 12pm and 3pm. Thanks!

We stopped here on a whim and are glad we did. This museum houses several military aircraft that have been restored. Each has a placard showing its history. You can walk right up and look in the cockpits, engines and unde rd bellies, we have visited several military museums and have never been able to get this close to fighter jets.

I came here with my father, who loves WW2 aviation, during my Christmas visit to Florida. It was relatively easy to get to from the Orlando area, and it took about an 2 hours to go thru. There are docents on staff, and while I generally like to explore museums on my own, we followed a docent named Bruce who was very knowledgeable and not overbearing, and I think added greatly to our experience. There were three hangars to go thru and my father, especially, enjoyed himself, his favorite aircraft being the twin Mustang. In addition to the hangars, there was an area in the front with war memorabilia as well. Took around 2 hours to go thru, gift shop on site, no cafe or restaurant on site but there are food options nearby.

Had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful warplanes museum. A small museum that has many war planes, several volunteers that spend the time to talk to you. I had a great time and it is close to the Kennedy Space Center.

For a smaller airport, this museum boasts a fine collection of restored military aircraft from the U.S. and other nations. Many of them are still in flying condition and we arrived just after a WWII B-25 had flown that day. Timing is everything.
The staff and docents were extremely knowledgeable and instructive. Amazing to see one of the ONLY P-82 fighter aircraft from the WWII. This is a pair of P-51 Mustangs assembled together in a twin fuselage configuration.

The museum does not sit on a major highway, but just follow the signs, as it is well worth the visit.

My husband is very big on military history. We came here and I honestly expected to be bored as I'm not as interested as he is. I will say I was truly surprised how much I enjoyed our visit! A nice guide told us he highly recommended the guided tour which we did and that was what made it so enjoyable for me! Our guide Vern was so kind with tons of information and fun facts regarding all the aircraft there! It's so nice to see the staff are all volunteers so it's truly a labor of love here! All the staff were so kind with tons of knowledge! Very educational for adults and kids! Thank you so much to vern for a wonderful experience! Highly recommended tour!!!

Well worth it!! We decided to have a guided tour - Our guide was a Veteran and definitely knew his stuff!! It took about an hour and a half for the tour...Time well spent!! He was very friendly and funny! Was amazed to find out everyone that works to help restore the planes are all volunteers who had worked in the airline industry in one form or another prior to retirement. Such dedication!!
