We took our 6 year old and 4 year old here over Christmas vacation and they loved it. The museum has a great collection of airplanes to look at and the layout is perfect to be able to walk through all of it and not miss anything. The kids loved looking at the planes but it was really nice that... More

So, after several years, my wife and I finally had an opportunity to visit the... More

We were looking for something fun to do with our 2.5 year old on a cold January morning. Our little one loves airplanes and rockets so the EAA was a great find. She squealed with delight the moment she walked in. There is a fun interactive kids area that she liked, but she really loved the rocket simulator and the... More

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

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.
