Took the grandsons, 14 and 10. While the oldest one isn't really in to planes, he had a great time. The 10 year old, who LOVES planes and WW2, was in heaven. Lots of great displays and interactive fun. While they didn't get to do...More

Even the display for the wright brothers had North Carolina sand. It was so many planes so much history about world war 2 The Nose Art of the drawing on the planes was amazing.

If you like to spend time inside of a museum looking at all the little details, this is the place. The nose art exhibit running to the end of 2016 is worth the price of admission alone!

Great place for small aircraft viewing including views of working airfield. Good gift shop and in particular good children exhibition with plenty of hands on displays. Not a military or civil exhibition but mainly small experimental aircraft through the ages.

Yes, there is electricity in the showers. It's Wisconsin, and we joke that if you don't like the weather just wait an hour - it will change! Typical weather in July is daytime temps of 65-85, nighttime temps down to low... More

Hello, We are planning a trip to Oshkosh in 2016 for the Air show as well as visiting the museum & any other sights of interest in that area. We live in Queensland, Australia & recently hired a motor home for a couple of weeks & attended the Classic fighters show at Omaka in New Zealand and apparently ninety-eight percent of people there had been to Oshkosh & we were the only two who hadn't .... yet! We've been to quite a few other airshows in different places around the world ie. Farnborough, Kanehoe Bay, Hawaii, Avalon, Melbourne as well as a variety of other smaller shows around the place. So now we have the idea firmly planted in our minds we'll be heading your way soon, we would just like a bit of help & advise please on what is the best way to get there, we plan on hiring a motor home & doing the glamping thing again for the duration of the show, so we need to know which is the best most easily accessible airport to land at near there & do you recommend somewhere we can hire a motor home from which is near at hand or even on site, to help minimize driving there. Also how early can we book a powered, watered site please? In eager anticipation of a positive response. Regards Carole & Les
