  • We were traveling Rt 4 E on the way to Orlando & saw a sign for this museum. Since my husband is a big airplane fan we decided to make a quick stop. It is a small museum but has some interesting displ...  more »

  • Nicely maintained and friendly staff. The majority of airplanes in the museum are experimental and custom-built flyers. If you are looking for vintage war planes and bombers, this museum perhaps isnt for you. The museum building is quite small. As such, the $12 per adult fee can get excessive if you are a large party. Other than that, the exhibits are informative and fun to read/explore. There is no fee to park here, and there are a few planes that can be viewed for free on the grounds. The grounds also house an aerospace high school, so be prepared to greet uniformed students if the time is right. They were very friendly and polite. Overall, a good experience, but plan for other nearby adventures as well since you probably wont spend an entire day here.
  • The kids had so much fun it was very quiet for a Saturday my kids said they love it first time here and I have say thanks to Groupon for the experience
  • We came for the annual Sun and Fun. What a fantastic time and HUGE variety of planes! Lots of vendors and workshops as well as air shows. Lots of aircraft you can get into and look at. Great show would recommend going. Only issues we had was lack of signs on which direction to get to the actual show, was turned around a few times trying to get to the right spot.
  • Most definitely not worth the price! It took us literally about 10-15 minutes to walk through this really small building!
  • I just went to the museum. It has the feel of a dark, large storage room and the music playing adds to this. There is a lot of information posted about the planes there. But some of the interactive games don't work. Overall, a good place for learning about aviation history.
