Perfect for those kids and families who love all things aircraft, this fascinating museum has over 90 actual aircraft for kids to get up close to, as well as hundreds of exhibits all ready to be enjoyed and learnt from.
The Eagle building, which is shaped like the US Forces insignia, is where you go to enjoy the exhibits, the archives, as well as the very amazing aircrafts.
Have you ever seen a F-15 Eagle with your own eyes? Or been close to a WWII aircraft? The Museum of Aviation is your chance!
There are so many amazing aircraft for kids to experience. From attack aircrafts including the Cessna "Dragonfly" and the Douglas "Invader", to bombers like the Boeing "superfortress" and Douglas "Destroyer", the museum really does have a great collection.
Want more aircraft? How about helicopters, missiles, fighters and cargo? It's a great learning experience for kids with the exhibits on the Vietnam War, Korean War as well as WWII.
Kids want something more during their visit? There are two scavenger hunts that they can complete as they walk around, so they can really learn about all the amazing facts of the aircrafts and the history of the war. Who can learn the most? Well kids, that’s up to you - better get going!

Great place, the kids and grownups alike enjoyed climbing over the exhibits and being a small site it is perfect to not lose small people.
