This museum was full of interesting items from WWII. They have several short films and exhibits that make you part of history. Only a few aircraft but beautiful displays. Didn't visit the gardens as the weather did not cooperate but they looked very nice. Gift shop had some unique and interesting items. Very nice and friendly staff. Worth the visit.

Great history lesson and some very nice exhibits. Not expensive and a good value. Even better if you get there on one of their special events. Small, but nice little museum.

Wonderful displays, talks, and videos. Nice gift shop. I wish the Gardens out back were a little easier to navigate.

After many trips down I-95 and having seen the museum from the interstate, we finally had some extra time to visit on a recent trip to Florida. Well worth the time. I was amazed at how comprehensive the exhibits were. The "mission experience" presentation truly puts you in the middle of the action.

Don't continue to look at the B-47 that sits outside the museum along the interstate as you head south every winter. Stop and take a look. You will not be sorry.

We were pleasantly surprised with the Mightly 8th AF Heritage Museum. While it is not repleat with WWII aircraft, the numerous displays of various WWII 8th AF units, along with the simulations of pre-mission briefing, maintenance, and an actual mission were excellent and very detailed. The museum is well laid out and even includes an extensive library and archives. Though I live 600 miles away, I'll be returning frequently.
