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 are into airplanes and the history of aviation, this is a must see. For the rest of us there are a lot of old airplanes and interesting material about the EAA and the use of planes in times of war.

We had a wonderful experience exploring the museum, staff are very nice and helpful. Worth it to pay for the entrance fee when you have so much to see inside it. The aircrafts and other artifacts are well kept, so much history to see and...More

The EAA museum at Oshkosh airfield is presented in two sections. One is held in a very modern purpose-built hangar. The other section is named "Pioneer Airport" and has an assembly of wooden hangars which contain vintage light aircraft dating back to the 1920s. It...More

We spent 5 hours there, lots to see and well worth the entrance fee. Staff were knowledgeable and keen to interact. Display of WW2 aircraft nose art was excellent.

The museum was a fun detour from our annual boys trip to Airventure. The exhibits were interesting and the staff was friendly. The gift shop was ok.

We are camping under the wing of our plane! I was trying to pack. Will there be a place to plug in a hair dryer to dry my hair at the public showers. If not, what do women do? What is the average temperature during day and at night?

Yes, there is electricity in the showers. It's Wisconsin, and we joke that if you don't like the weather just wait an hour - it will change! Typical weather in July is daytime temps of 65-85, nighttime temps down to low... More

Hello, We are planning a trip to Oshkosh in 2016 for the Air show as well as visiting the museum & any other sights of interest in that area. We live in Queensland, Australia & recently hired a motor home for a couple of weeks & attended the Classic fighters show at Omaka in New Zealand and apparently ninety-eight percent of people there had been to Oshkosh & we were the only two who hadn't .... yet! We've been to quite a few other airshows in different places around the world ie. Farnborough, Kanehoe Bay, Hawaii, Avalon, Melbourne as well as a variety of other smaller shows around the place. So now we have the idea firmly planted in our minds we'll be heading your way soon, we would just like a bit of help & advise please on what is the best way to get there, we plan on hiring a motor home & doing the glamping thing again for the duration of the show, so we need to know which is the best most easily accessible airport to land at near there & do you recommend somewhere we can hire a motor home from which is near at hand or even on site, to help minimize driving there. Also how early can we book a powered, watered site please? In eager anticipation of a positive response. Regards Carole & Les

I usually fly into Austen Straubel, Green Bay, which is 50 miles from Oshkosh, and is probably the easiest airport to drive from, failing that try either Milwaukee, or Chicago (Chicago is a fair distance though). I suggest... More
