Get up close and personal with the machines of freedom. Any aviation buff will lose their mind getting up close and personal with some of the most significant aircraft in the history of the military.

Beautiful museum to walk around both inside and out. Well worth stopping in at. This museum does a fine job of explaining the history of Egglin Air Force Base. Well done!!

Thoroughly enjoyed walking around the museum. I think we all, including the kids, learned a few things. Grateful for past generations having the foresight to bring it into existence.

We stopped in for a visit on a rainy day and would like to go back and walk around outside. Our 9 year old daughter loved it.
