Plan on spending considerable time here exploring and learning about aircraft through history and into the future. There are many hands on displays and videos to watch. Many special events are held here thru the spring and summer as well so I would refer to their web site for more details.

I only have a mild interest in planes and aviation but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. Lots to do and see. I now drive by other aviation museums without stopping because I know they won't compare to this one. Very interesting.

A great asset to our community many hands on experiences including simulators. Much aviation history here. Ask any pilot if he knows where Oshkosh is and they will know this museum. Fly in is every July and makes Oshkosh the busiest airport in the world! (Airventure)

This museum was great. Going now we had much of the museum to ourselves. Apparently the place gets packed in the summer. We had lots of time to enjoy and try the hands on displays. Enjoyed reading some of the stores and I am amazed about how much pilots need to know. The F100 instrumentation is something that I have... More

Great event in a Fantastic atmosphere. All the craft beers you can try is overwhelming. Received as a gift but would never spend $75.00 to do it again. Good food & appetizers.

Even if you are not an airplane buff this museum is great. There are lots of amazing planes to see. It is very interactive for children and adults. You could easily spend 3-4 hours at a leisurely pace and the time will "fly" by.

Went to a wedding here a couple months ago, and it proved to be a very neat and unique wedding venue. We had some time in between events so we were able to check out the exhibits. Very neat and interesting place. I'd like to go again!

This is a family place. There is something for everyone from tots to 100 plus. Memories from the past are brought back to life and generations of old tell their stories to the youngsters. Dreams and visions for the future are born and take shape here as the kids see, hear, smell, touch, and experience all that life in the... More
