What is there to do?

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly to the Southern Museum of Flight in Birmingham, Alabama!

If you LOVE planes or history, then you might want to check out the 75,000 sq ft of museum that is waiting to be explored. The museum have an incredible collection of not only memorabilia, but also actual aircraft that you can get right up close to!

The Southern Museum of Flight is actually one of the largest aviation museums in the Southeast, and is dedicated to showcasing all types of aircraft - from civilian to military - and telling their stories.

There are over 90 aircraft, as well as memorabilia from the earliest history of powered flight. There are engines, models, photos, paintings, and artifacts - all great fun for kids to look at. They might be amazed at how big and unique these aircraft are!

The Southern Museum of Flight is also home to the Alabama Aviation Hall of Fame, where you can read all about those who have made a difference in aviation - over 65 names in fact!

There really is something for everyone. If you love history, there is plenty to see and read, and if you love planes then you just really are in for a treat! There is an indoor and outdoor collection, and some will just amaze you!

Great museum fun for the family in Birmingham. You never know - you might have a future pilot in the family that is inspired!
