Definetly must see for anyone who is into military. Lots of static plane displays, inside a lot more about missions and armament. Free to visit

Nice, has an indoor and outdoor section. Volunteer docents at the door to answer a question, they were having a retirement ceremony when we were there. Great to see the MOAB BOmb which may be dropped on Syria tomorrow!!!

Great museum right next to VPS airport...totally free, and some really cool sights. We strolled through the entire indoor and outdoor exhibits and spent about 90-120 minutes.

This is an awesome museum with many historic aircraft and the weapons used with them. A casing of an atom bomb like the type used on Nagasaki, and a moab bomb outside. Many aircraft mounted guns as used on aircraft.

A nice tribute to the history of the Air Force and it's aircraft. If your in the area it's worth stopping.

Enjoyed a free activity - spent a couple hours there. Good history of that area and how it shaped the air force and plane/weapon development. Not a whole lot to keep the kid's interest, but as an adult it was very interesting.
