We stopped at this museum since it was along our path, and we could get in free with a reciprocal museum pass. It has a small collection, but what they do have is immaculately maintained. Older and smaller private aircrafts are inside, and the larger military planes are displayed outside. Their exhibits skew heavily towards those who like to fly or build their own planes. If EAA is of interests to you, you will probably like this museum. The kids were disappointed that the flight simulator experience wasn't running, but they did spend a lot of their time playing the flight simulators on the computers. It was a short enjoyable visit for us, but I'm not sure we would have paid the $10/adult admission if we didn't have a pass.

We go through the museum sometimes after my daughter finishes her Saturday STEMtastic Class. We never get tired of the old planes ad stuff. This place really hops when the Sun n Fun is here. If you like planes at all, then this is a must see.

No, this is not Udvar-Hazy or the National Air & Space Museum but it is a dandy aviation museum. Clean and air conditioned, the section on the history of aviation in Florida is great! The museum is developing and changing all the time with interactivity and hands on experience being the goal.

My career is in airplanes so I am very biased. Fun place that has really historic planes. It can be a little boring at times and is not comparable to the big museums (i.e. National Air and Space Museum) in terms of number of exhibits.
