Museum of Aviation
The Museum of Aviation is the second largest museum in the U.S. Air Force with a collection dating from a replica of an early 1896 glider to modern-era aircraft such as the B-1B bomber, the SR-71 Blackbird, the U-2 Dragon Lady and F-15 Eagle. The Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums. Exhibits tell the story of aviation events from World War II to the present, including depicting the mission of Robins Air Force Base, the largest industrial employer in Georgia.
Great place to spend a day. Has plenty to see and it's so big you might not see everything on your first visit. When I was there, there was a hands on exhibit that the kids loved.
Great museum, it has so much to offer kids and adults. Just when you think you seen it all there's a while new area to view and interact with. GREAT MUSEUM! !!
This is an excellent museum that is spread over several hangers and in the open space surrounding the Museum. There are a number of historic aircrafts housed here including the Helicopter used by Robert Kennedy to fly to Andrew Air Force Base to meet Air Force One as it returned from Dallas carrying the Body of President John Kennedy. Also housed here is the Lockheed Jetstar used by President Lyndon Johnson to travel to and from the LBJ Ranch. The museum is free and the staff is very helpful and willing to answer any questions guests may have about any of the aircrafts. I spent the better part of 4-hours here and enjoyed every minute of it. Great museum and well worth a visit when you are in the area.
I liked that museum and recommend the others to visit it. Big exhibition, well organized. Only I wish they add a possibility to see some planes from inside but in overall everything is good.
I took my grands, boys, ages 8 and 6, and was elated at how excited they were! The history contained within the walls of the museum is all-inclusive and thorough. Excellent educational outing!
