Overview

We are a Southwest Florida Military Museum. We have thousands of Military artifacts from all branches of the Military. The Museum is located at the Naples Municipal Airport which was originally built by the Army Corps of Engineers to train pilots for the Pacific theater in WWII. We have now opened the 2nd room we call the Annex, that has everything else not connected to WWII and the Naples Airport Vietnam-Korea Middle East wars and some left over WWII articles. What has begun as a Museum Honoring Military Aviation in World War 2, has evolved into so much more. You can now see historical artifacts dating back to the Revolutionary War and all the way up to the present day Iraq & Afghanistan conflicts.

Interesting exhibits from WW II predominately. very small, in the Commercial airport. Good for a short visit, but you do have to give the exhibitors credit for trying on a shoestring budget.More
