We do the EAA museum every few years. They have a permanent exhibit, but also rotate in some really cool things from time to time. Our last trip was for the WWII nose art exhibit which was very cool!!! Better for older kids, there is some hands on stuff to explore.

An amazing display of aviation sure to captivate your attention for hours. Excellent displays with fabulous lighting and information. Best money I've spent in a while. Be sure to stop when you're in the area and have at least a few hours to spend here.

My 13 year old son took hours to read text, look at artifacts and loved all the planes. We loved Nose Art exhibition and stories about what inspired the artists.

There is something for every age group and every interest in flying. Many kids areas for them to get a feeling of what it is like to... More

What a little discovered gem. Hiding along hwy 41 in Oshkosh, WI is a world class museum. Many interactive displays with a lot of information regarding WWII and also with the history of aviation.

Neat place FULL of planes and a lot of great history. Take a ride to the Pioneer Hanger - choose to have someone take you through and give you a guided tour or walk around at your own leisure! Great place for all ages!
