The EAA Aviation Museum, formerly the EAA AirVenture Museum (or Air Adventure Museum), is a museum dedicated to the preservation and display of historic and experimental aircraft as well as antiques, classics, and warbirds. The museum is located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, United States, adjacent to Wittman Regional Airport, home of the museum's sponsoring organization, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), and the organization's EAA AirVenture Oshkosh event (the world's biggest fly-in and airshow) that takes place in late July/early August.

With over 200 aircraft, indoors and outdoors, and other exhibits and activities (including occasional aircraft rides nearby), the AirVenture Museum is a key tourist attraction in Oshkosh and is a center of activity throughout the AirVenture fly-in and airshow each summer. The museum is open year-round with the exception of a few holidays.

  • Flew on the 1928 Ford Tri-motor based in Port Clinton, Ohio. The "Tin Goose" as she is affectionately called, was America's first comfy commercial airliner. This trip, sponsored by the EAA...

  • The planes were amazing. Wonderful feature on women in aviation and space industries and their contributions. There is a gift shop also - usual stuff for kids and adults - cups, patches, t shirts...

  • Great place to learn and see all types of planes. The children's spot is cool for everyone and you can sit in a jet! If you live in the area and haven't gone, I suggest a trip. In the summer it's better because they open the outside hangers and you can take a trolley and see even more planes.
  • Wow!!!! This blew me away! The amount of different planes they have on display is amazing! They have done a wonderful job making it all flow together! My kids enjoyed running around seeing all of the different planes and loved the kids zone!
  • Visited museum as part of EAA Airventure 2022. Great exhibits and lectures, both inside museum and outside in the pavilions. If you like anything aircraft related, Airventure is definitely the place to go each year! Over 10,000 aircraft and 650,000 attendees this year! Plus daily air shows and 2 night shows with massive fireworks finales.
  • Historic aircraft and displays, and free for EAA members. I really enjoyed our short visit while at AirVenture, seeing many historic Homebuilts from the 60's- 80's and all sorts of other beautiful relics. There's a vast gift shop too.
  • The museum was very interesting. The docent greeted us at the entrance and was great. A couple of us got rides in historic open cockpit biplanes. Entire experience was awesome!
