Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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!

Though the EAA grounds are home to their annual convention late July each year, going through the museum is an additional experience. Some one of a kinds there for the true aviator fan.

“Complete history of avation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

It's not cheap but you could spend the day at this museum and barely see half of it! The number of models of planes was staggering. EVERYTHING from the Wright Brothers plane to Lindbergh, to car-planes were on display. There was a huge military section as well.
