Our family (with two boys, 12yr & 6yr) stopped here while on a trip to Florida. We found the museum via a search on Trip Advisor. The hours and cost fit our expectations of a place that could be visited In a couple hours and seemed (according to Trip Advisor reviews) to be a good place for younger kids and adults.
The museum is not fancy but has several exhibits that can be played with by kids. This includes a real helicopter and a small two seater airplane. Also on display were detailed historical displays of aviation, several military jets, experimental aircraft, and some older mechanical flight training simulators.
What really made the visit super was Steve C., one of the volunteers. He used to be in the Marines as a flight engineer on C-119s. He helped demonstrate some of the exhibits and was great at showing the kids what the engines and planes did. He also highlighted how people from Kentucky were involved in aviation throughout history. And Steve setup one of the mechanical simulators for the kids to try.
Definitely worth the stop:)
