Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum, Fort Lauderdale

4.8
#7 of 8 in Museums in Fort Lauderdale
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.

    Great museum. Genuine volunteers who are passionate, patriotic, and caring about the country and the history surrounding the war. There is no admission, however I would recommend that you support the museum with a donation or by patronizing some of the products in the museum gift shop. I did both. I would definitely come back and I encourage anyone who is looking for a museum that is rich in heritage, knowledge and culture to visit this museum. Our tour guide was great. There were no issues with this visit. Me and my family enjoyed it thoroughly. The tour could take 1&1/2-2 hours, so prepare time for that.

    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
