Attraction details
Owner description: The American Airpower Museum is Non-Profit 501C3 Aviation Museum and State Chartered Educational Foundation. A unique Museum in that many of the historic Aircraft are operational and fly regularly during the spring and summer months. The Museum is located at historic Republic Airport in Farmingdale NY. The Airport established back in the 1920s by Fairchild and Grumman Aviation. Eventually the home of Seversky Aviation during the 1930s it would evolve into Republic Aviation in 1939. In 1941 Republic produced the P-47 Thunderbolt which would go on to be the most mass produced fighter of WWII with over 15,000 built. Republic would go on to build the F-84, F-105, and A-10 Fighter Aircraft all right here in Long Island NY. Today the American Airpower Museum calls one of the last three surviving Republic Hangars home.

“Great Hands On Aviation History”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

If you're into warbirds this is more than worth the trip, especially on the weekends when they fly. This isn't about planes on static display. The Corsair, Mustang, Warhawk and more all take to the air. Plus you're standing in a piece of history--the hanger where they actually built P-47 Thunderbolts. Great for kids and adults.

“Awesome”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Very well done exhibits, many are 'hands on'. The staff is very knowledgeable.

I highly recommend the airshows they put on.

“Small, nice museum”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Been here several times and enjoyed selection of craft. Expensive to visit for what you get and they raise their prices for certain holidays and special events. I won't go there again because there are more options I spend my money on.
