#7 of 9 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.

  • Super Museum, not very big but very well "supplied" volunteers very generous and kind we arrived a day or the Museum was closed for the anniversary of a veteran. They still opened the Museum, we translated and especially invited us to celebrate the anniversary of the veteran, a moment very emotional thank you for everything

  • I'm not at all keen to anything that reminds the past wars and the history of aviation, but this small Museum attracted me. Not very big but with many memories of the various wars in which the USA participated, the place is quite moving. Veterans who receive you are welcoming and available for any explanation and situation in time. The Museum is located on the former training ground for future officers who were to fight during the different wars. Memories, stories and objects that belonged to fighters have been offered to this museum which makes the soul. Admission is free and the Museum is accessible only on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

  • For those who love aviation history from world war is a good thing. Throughout the tour we had the monitoring of local representatives, relentless and very kind providing all the explanations of the above, a special thanks to Mr. Gary Adams veteran full of enthusiasm. A few days before your visit to watch movie or learn about the ' Flight 19 ' because it was there that they came out because it is one of the most documented occurrences in the history of the Bermuda triangle. On the afternoon of December 5 1945. Visit the Museum's website: nasflmuseum.com.

  • Knowledgeable Docents, plenty of artifacts to see... actually walking on the very same floor of an historic Avenger Pilot while he was training during the Second World War.
  • Wonderful historical mementos and artifacts and Anthony our guide was great, very knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Amazing! Lot's of history and items on display. Schools should include the museum on their field trip list. 5, 10 and 12 year old kids loved it.
  • Interesting place staffed by great people. Plan for double the time you think you'll spend there.
  • 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.
