EAA AirVenture Museum
EAA is a growing and diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. EAA was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and contemporary manufactured aircraft.
How does one describe an EAA member? Well, how does one describe the feeling of taking off into a stiff headwind? The answer: If you don't know, you'll just have to join us to find out. EAA members are what we like to call the "keepers of the flame." Sure, we love airplanes. We fly them. We fix them. We even build them. But it goes beyond that. It's about passion, camaraderie, that ol' can-do spirit, and a grassroots way of sharing our love of aviation with others. Whatever it takes to stand in the footsteps of Orville and Wilbur ... if only for a moment.
EAA enables you to share the spirit of aviation with the most passionate community of recreational pilots, builders, and restorers.
EAA is the only association that offers the fun and camaraderie of sharing your passion for participating in the flying, building, and restoring of recreational aircraft with the most passionate community of aviation enthusiasts.
A beautiful museum with plenty of aircraft and exhibits to see. From the Wright Brothers to Voyager, and many more recent planes. I also really enjoyed the WWII nose art on display. The staff there was enthusiastic and helpful too.
Great place for active children. Snacks and drinks on lower level. Hanger X is the entry to the children's area. Watched airplanes take off and land from the museum's tower overlooking Pioneer Field. Took the tram to Pioneer Field and children 8 and older may take a complementary flight with a parent's signed consent form. Many of these children go on to be pilots!
Excellent aviation museum. Many historic airplanes, some very important in the history of flying. Go there! Very nice gift shop, as well.
So many different kinds of airplanes from the past and now. There's a really cool simulator to try. History from the Apollo missions. A new virtual machine to inspire kids and adults in aviation. A true wealth of aviation information. You can experience 1st hand in a helicopter and fly a remote control. Purchase EAA merchandise and listen to past accomplishments.
Very nice museum for aviation enthusiasts. Full of history and engineering. Main focus is general aviation. A bit outdated but a must see anyway.
