We enjoyed our visit to the museum. The free admission is a bonus! The displays inside the building provide a lot of information. The planes and helicopters outside were fun to look at up close!

So cool, ans so much to see in a small area. And love the acres of planes outside and the so many neat bombs and historic armament inside. Really informative and set up well to take in. Rain or shine you can enjoy this place.

So many planes. If you enjoy looking at aircraft up close, this is one of the best places you can go to. Best part is that it's free.

A very complete history of armament development specifically at Eglin AFB. Many static aviation displays inside and out. $0 entrance fee BUT suggested donation of $5; well worth it!
