What a beautiful Tribute to our Country

A wonderful way to spend the day. It operates on donations so entry is free. It is a great way to get in some walking and american history at the same time.

A great Air Force museum with plenty to see. Outdoor exhibits are excellent and the indoor stations are very informative. Can't beat the price either!

The Air Force Armament Museum works totally on contributions! There is no admission fee but there are donation boxes around.

Air Force Armament Museum is a wonderful attraction. It is free and very educational. Has lots of artifacts from a number of different wars. Great place to enjoy an afternoon out of the Florida heat. The whole family enjoyed it.

I could have spent more time inside but over 60 you want to rest more. It is about armaments and I real military history buff would have a great visit.

Our visit to the Air Force Armament Museum was fantastic too many great things to list. My favorite was the replica of the fat boy bomb. It really makes you think. If your in the area don't miss it.
