My hubby really wanted to see this museum, so we went on our last day. It was a great experience. The planes and jets outside are amazing to see. Very nice tributes and displays inside as well. Very glad we went.

My hubby is a private pilot, so on our vaca to Ft. Walton we HAD to stop by this museum. Great place to see up close and personal some great relics of Air Force history. Informational, educational, does require a lot of walking, and best on a sunny part of the day as most of the exhibits are outside. We... More

This is a great place for kids and adults. We go every year. Each time I have heard an ex-Airforce visitor, talking & showing a plane he was in or a mechanic for to his friends or family. With great pride!

You will enjoy this museum if you are anything like I was growing up, and watching the planes fly high overhear. This is a great display of military aircraft from the SR-71 which is one of the fast airplane ever developed to the collection of fire arms and assorted bombs which the military use in today's conflicts. Everyone from the... More

I am a history buff and this museum did not disappoint. The airplane displays outside are amazing and the inside has tons of interesting exhibits. The room of historical guns was terrific and unexpected. Take you time and prepare to spend several hours wandering around.

Very historical and interesting! Every aircraft explained how that type aviation transport or fighter was used and in what era. There was an inside museum also, and a reasonaby priced gift shop . The entire tour was free and you strolled at your own pace. It was not crowded when we visited in mid May. I'd recommend seeing it if... More
