(60+ reviews on the web)
Military Museum Museum
Serving as one among 257 air stations during World War II, and as one of a few specialty schools for training on the TBM/TBF Avenger aircraft, the Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale (NASFL) made a big impact in the South Florida region, and the United States as a whole. The NAS Fort Lauderdale Museum (also known as the Link Trainer Building #8), stands as the only reminder of a naval complex of more than 200 buildings.

  • An absolute gem of a museum, and overall experience. Being ex-Navy and in aviation, I am particular as to what museums have to offer and what I think is good. This place is the real deal. Besides the George H. W. Bush items, the Link Trainer is worth coming to see. It is housed in a classic WW II wooden building. The staff is very congenial and helpful. You should not miss this place and its exhibits!
  • It was really great if you flew airplanes. I did enjoy it the guide was very in formative. But we were disappointed, because my husband was on a ship during the Vietnam War and he drove torpedo retriever boats. When he saw the torpedo's outside he was very much looking foreword to go in. There was nothing for him there. Maybe they could put some information about ships. Just a thought
  • Best kept secret in Broward. Great museum.
  • Very cool place with lots of very nice staff. I would recommend anyone go here given the chance.
  • Became a volunteer for the museum a month ago and I'm having one of the most exciting experiences of my life. Contributing my time and effort to maintain this museum's historic footnote in American history is both fun as well as endearing. As a docent and (hopefully) historian in the future, I find teaching the populace at large a pivotal motion to give accurate info about WW2 on the frontlines and at home. Even further, from the Korean War to the present day. In turn, I hope to learn more from retired vets and other source's of credible significance about what I know and separate fact from fiction. Anyway, I recommend all ages with adult supervision for preteens and below.
