About this activity

Who's ready to have a FLYING family day out in Alabama! Well, at the Army Aviation Museum, they will certainly give you a great start!

The Army Aviation Museum is perfect for all families who LOVE aviation - helicopters, planes, wartime aircraft - it's all there to be explored! It's also a great education for kids as they can really discover the incredible history behind the rise of the aircraft.

The museum itself has a collection of over 160 military aircraft, and kids, if you like helicopters then you will LOVE the fact they have one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the entire world!

The exhibits at the Army trace the development, as well as the use, of aviation by the Army in a number of areas. With around 50 aircraft on display at any one time, kids can learn all the aspects, from troop and cargo transportation, to scouting and liaison duties, to medical evacuations and even those crafts used as offensive weapons!

The sobering Vietnam Memorial is a fascinating look at the 4,347 strong army that gave the ultimate sacrifice to their country, and the Army Aviation Hall of Fame recognizes the achievements and contributions given across history by those key names who really made a difference - and with over 100 inductees that's a lot of amazing people to read about!

You can see the AH-64 Apache that played a vital role in Operation Desert Storm, and a replica of that infamous Wright brothers Model B that started this whole industry off!

Did we mention the 3,000 items that are located in the historical property collection too? 

You see - there is SO much to learn at the Army Aviation Museum, and you will be SOARING with information by the time you leave! A fascinating and educational family day out for all!
