  • Love seeing all the aircraft. Even have a blackbird. And the 53 holds a close place in my heart.
  • Awesome planes outside and very cool missiles inside/outside; though the indoor museum was a bit small. This museum is not as big as others but still very cool. If you're nearby on vacation, it's only about 15min from Fort Walton beach.
  • Very nice variety of planes. The sr71 set it off. A must see
  • It was a decent little museum with a bunch of interesting military displays. It was free to enter but you can donate at the door. Spent maybe 20 mins at the place and saw everything they had. The people who work/volunteer there seem pretty nice.
  • Free admission. Lots to see. Nice area.
