Owner description: Located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at the site of the world's largest aviation event (EAA AirVenture) the Museum is one of the most extensive aviation attractions in the world, a year-round destination for the entire family. Come and explore our world-class displays and galleries. Marvel at aviation innovations in our collection of more than 200 historic airplanes. Spend time in one of our four movie theaters. Take a ride in a vintage airplane at Pioneer Airport-a real working aerodrome right out of the "golden age" of aviation. Witness a piece of history in the Eagle Hangar, our tribute to World War II aviation and get "hands on" in the KidVenture Gallery, our exciting interactive gallery for kids of all ages!

What a place to go if you love flying or the history of flying - or BOTH!! What fun for family, couples and the like to go and enjoy a true background of flight and those who enjoy and participate in it. Great place for a half of a day of exploring.

I found this museum to be educational, entertaining, and well run. It was clean and interactive. There is a child friendly area and lots of opportunity to touch.

This museum has a huge amount of history all under one roof. The exhibits are set up for learning and admiration and the entire museum is more informative and exciting than the Smithsonian Air and Space museum. There is a huge interactive gallery for kids to learn about science and airplanes and Pioneer Airport is a one of a kind experience. This museum is truly for everyone, not just the airplane nuts who visit every July.

This is an easy review. All I have to say is Experimental Aircraft Associates. Having attended the EAA Fly In many times, sorry Paul I am old school, this is a must see. The museum is prefect. Every display, whether an airplane or exhibit, is first class. Every item is presented in a way that even a non airplane enthusiast will come away with an understanding and appreciation for all that EAA has done and will do in the future. I have worked with EAA in the past with my activities at the airport and I can truthfully say that there is no finer group of people that believes in giving the public all that it wants and more. I must tell you that I am not an EAA member but I am a believer in this fine organization and their museum.

Once you get there you will know what I mean. It is extremely easy to catch the spirit of aviation when you visit the Museum. Members of EAA get to visit the Museum for free. At the same facility, and close by, classes are also held to train would be aviators and home builders the correct way to build, test fly, and become pilots. It is a vast resource of information. The Museum is just on spoke of the EAA "Wheel". It is a great family oriented organization. Thousands of volunteers gather every year for Airventure held in July annually. The Oshkosh airport becomes the busiest airport in the world that week each year. I visit the Museum each year and always find something new to look at and learn about. Don't pass up the opportunity to visit!
