From the displays along Highway 41, I thought this was a military flight museum. I was wrong! This is a museum run by the Experimental Aircraft Association and it is absolutely fascinating!! We went with my son, two grandsons (5 and 9) and a granddaughter in her twos. The entry fee maxes out at $31.00 for a family. The highlight... More

The EAA AirVenture Museum is easily one of the top Air and Space museums in the world, on Par with the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, and the USAF Museum in Dayton, OH. The focus is on homebuilt, experimental airplanes, but the museum also boasts a huge collection of vintage and ex-military aircraft. During the summer the... More

I have been a member for many years and have volunteered for the Air Show. What a great organization of very dedicated individuals. They take great pride in doing everything they do.

Was here for a car show in August. Loved it the grounds were the perfect setting for the car show and being able to go in the hangers was great. Show will be here again next August can't wait! !

What a find! Beautiful displays in an astounding facility. EAA and it's annual air venture event has a world-wide reputation among aviation buffs. The airport becomes the busiest on the planet for one week each year. No matter when you're in Oshkosh you can catch a glimpse of the excitement in this delightful museum.

We stopped on a whim, (none of us into aviation) thinking this would be a small collection of models and pictures. We stayed 4 hours and could have spent more time. There were hundreds of planes on display- actual and full scale replicas. Lots of pictures, log books, accessories, military memorabilia. Interactive displays fun for all ages, simulators too. An...

This is my fifth-rated aviation museum, but don't take that as a negative. First is National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, second and third are the National Air and Space Museums in Washington D.C. & Dulles Airport, fourth place is the Museum of Flight in Seattle. During the summer months the place is pretty busy and... More
