After being in the Air Force stationed at Homestead AFB and manly working on B47s, B52s, and the Hound Dog Missile, it has always been hard to show my wife exactly what I DID work on. To my surprise, we found a lot of the other aircraft I worked on during my tours. They have most of the armament displays... More

If you like military history and Air Force aircraft be sure to spend some time here. They have most of the weapons from the past and many are still in service to this day. Kids just love the aircraft.

We stopped here on vacation and wasn't sure what to expect, but there is a lot of things to look at! There is so much history here and it is truly amazing they have some of these aircrafts. The kids had fun because you could actually climb in some of them. It's fee too. Definitely worth the trip.

We stopped in here on our trip to Ft. Walton Beach and stayed 2-3 hours. I'm a museum nerd so this was right up my alley but I think anyone would find it interesting. The number of planes and munitions here is impressive. Best of all, it's free. They do have a donation box and it was well worth the... More

We went here a day it was too cold to be at the beach. There is a lot of history packed into this exhibit. It was laid out very good. The planes on display outside were interesting. The information about each plane was very helpful.

After spending days on the beach, my family needed something else to do for a change. This museum was the perfect answer. I was surprised by the number of airplanes and other numerous exhibits. I especially enjoyed looking at all those massive machines guns on airplanes. You can really feel the ridiculous raw power of these machines. You don't want... More

The wife and I visited the Air Force Armament Museum over the Christmas holidays. The museum has a ton of aircraft and armaments on display with a brief description of the history of each item. As an Air Force veteran some of the aircraft sparked some memories. I was concerned that my wife may not care for the trip but... More

We didn't have a lot of time, but we really enjoyed all that we got to see. We were only able to see the outdoor displays because of our time crunch, but they were done really well. The size of the planes are amazing. You never get that view from the screen or a book; it's very impressive to see... More

I love aircraft but did not know if my wife would really be to keen on going here especially since we came for the beach. We were both surprised by the quality of the exhibits on site. Many famous aircraft stored outside, which bothers me very much, as they deserve better than that for such rare aircraft. However inside was... More
