Located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at the site of the world's largest aviation event (EAA AirVenture) the Museum is one of the most extensive aviation attractions in the world, a year-round destination for the entire family. Come and explore our world-class displays and galleries. Marvel at aviation innovations in our collection of more than 200 historic airplanes. Spend time in one of our four movie theaters. Take a ride in a vintage airplane at Pioneer Airport-a real working aerodrome right out of the "golden age" of aviation. Witness a piece of history in the Eagle Hangar, our tribute to World War II aviation and get "hands on" in the KidVenture Gallery, our exciting interactive gallery for kids of all ages!

I've been a lifelong aviation nut and was on my way to Door County and was happy when doing my research to see that the EAA Museum was so nearby. I got off the road and really enjoyed the exhibits in the main hanger. Everything...More

We spent 5 hours there, lots to see and well worth the entrance fee. Staff were knowledgeable and keen to interact. Display of WW2 aircraft nose art was excellent.

The museum was a fun detour from our annual boys trip to Airventure. The exhibits were interesting and the staff was friendly. The gift shop was ok.

The museum has so much to look at, and it is easy to skip the kids area. They have a lot of hands on experimental and hinge for kids/adults to do. I would highly recommend giving yourself at least an hour for that area. One...More

From humble beginnings, the EAA Museum and companion summer event AIRVENTURE are the true home base for the aviation world. Kitty Hawk is well represented both in the museum (the Wright Flyer) and at the Brown Arch entrance for the Air Venture grounds. If you...More

We toured the museum, and just love the historical aspect of aviation, and were lucky enough to see the "nose art" display from WW 2 planes.

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
