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!

If you come thru Oshkosh in late July/early August make it a point to stop in at EAA Air Adenture for the airshow-especially on Saturday when they put on a night air show. There are planes with sparklers, an awesome fireworks show and it tops all of that with a finale of a funny car snd the wall of fire. The past few years they have also done a re-enactment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor that is a must see. I'm not a big airplane person, but this is a million times better than I ever expected it to be!

There is something for everyone to see at this museum, and if you have any interest at all in aviation, then you won't want to leave. You will want to come to AirVenture in late July/early August. You can also see the airshows from all around Oshkosh, but being on the grounds for this is spectacular. If you happen to be in the area in early December, you won't want to miss Christmas in the Air, with Santa arriving by helicopter, lots of holiday entertainment, as well as a "taste" of the area with area businesses giving away samples of their foods.

I have lived in Oshkosh for 15 years and have been the EAA Museum a handful of times and have enjoyed their week long fly in along with the rich history of the museum. If you have time to walk the grounds I would do it. SO much to offer besides looking at planes.

This is a World-class Museum in the middle of rural Wisconsin. If you have only a fleeting interest in aviation, you will enjoy this museum. If you are an aviation enthusiast, you will be enthralled. The exhibits address the important events in the history of aviation from the point of view of the little guy. From the Wright brothers to Lindbergh to Burt Ratan people have been designing and building small aircraft on their own, without the help of the government or of large corporations. Their story is told here in well thought out, interesting exhibits. There is also a section on aviation in World War II and a restored "pioneer" airport.
