This place was very cool, and a must see in Fort Walton Beach especially if you like big planes or have family in the military. The Prisoners of War Exhibit made me cry, as well as the war hero stories.

This museum is right near Eglin AFB. As the name suggests it is mostly an armament museum on the inside. It covers American armament up to modern times. We especially like looking at the static displays of Air Force aircraft on the ground outside the...More

Worth the trip if you are vacationing in the Destin area. Museum and grounds are free to visit. Kid-friendly and interesting to children and adults alike.

Our flight was delayed and I happened to notice this great museum. Many planes and display sites to view - we had a great time looking around. Highly recommend!

Great any time or day. I had never been so up close with a P-47 Thunderbolt before. The displays are well done and informative. The Museum runs the gamut of USAAF and USAF armmaments, to include the MOAB.

Fairly wheelchair friendly. 2.5 out of 5. Some places are narrow. A couple of places lack a ramp. 70s building. Free. Self guided. Not interactive. Movie helpful. Displays somewhat antiquated.

Not sure, I know it has an android app but I rather use the website since app has limited functionality.
