We did this on a whim to kill an hour or so. We've been here about three and a half hours so far. My wife is up in a airplane our grandson is having a blast and so am I. I'm not even an airplane nut and this thing is just so cool and interesting. If you're near here you gotta do it

There are many events during the year, being Memorial day one of the busiest, with an airshow that includes their vintage airplanes and other guest, like the Blue Angels.
You can reserve a flight in some of the vintage aircraft, their calendar of activities on the website describes all the events.
The volunteers are former Republic airport workers and veterans, each one takes you on a journey thru the history of each aircraft in the hanger.
Visiting by your self or with your family, the annual membership gives you access for a year; their location is nearby different local restaurants, with easy access to the main highways.
The gift store has many options from airplane replicas, T-shirts, jackets, pens, pins, many items and most important friendly staff. Bring your camera to capture some historic images.

My husband and I took a trip to the American Airpower Museum earlier today. This place is amazing!! It's for all ages, male and female. There is a special place in the museum for women who served in the military, which touched me deeply. Many different aircrafts to see. There was so much to see that we didn't realized how many hours we spent there until we were in the gift shop on our way out. The $10 per adult entrance fee is extremely cheap when compared to the experience you receive. Get yourself a tour guide. They will share stories with you that will make the experience more exciting and interesting. The gift shop prices are very reasonable. We left this place already planning to come back when they have an event. oh and we also plan on treating ourselves for a flight on the C-47 D-Day experience. check their website to plan your visit. It's worth it!!

You immediately get an authentic feel to this collection of vintage airplanes. Their presence in this huge hanger adds to the ambiance. Unfortunately the graphics and overall presentation is lacking. Yes, the kids can run around and touch everything, but there is so much history here that is not being exhibited properly. Overall, still a great experience and worth visiting.
