United States Army Aviation Museum
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of over 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. Approximately 50 beautifully restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are proudly displayed both inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the Museum's grounds. The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.

“Very Well Done”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

As a military veteran who spent some time in a Huey...I have an interest in aviation and Army aviation in particular.

This museum shows you the progression of aviation from the US Army perspective and if you are interested in seeing military related attractions, you must go here.

The display of the crashed UH-1 in a Vietnam rice paddy is especially meaningful to me and is quite realistic.

There is something here for everyone to enjoy. It's a great history lesson for the kids. Big kids enjoy seeing the displays, too.

“Excellent Aviation Museum!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

What a surprise to find such an excellent aviation museum in this area with little else of interest -- and even more wonderful that it's free! The exhibits include examples of all manner of flying machines from early to modern, all well displayed and well documented. You don't even have to be an aviation fan to enjoy the up-close and personal look at these things! Nice to see quite a few servicemen and women in uniform sharing this history with family and friends. The building itself is nice, too; clean restrooms, good gift shop.

If you go, you will need a photo id to get through security at the gate.

“Rare collection of vintage planes and especially helicopters”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Nice collection going back to Wright Brothers planes and a Fokker Eindecker, only one I ever saw. Also a Spad and some other rare WW 1 and WW 2 planes and every helicopter every flown it seems.
