I had a ride in a 1929 Travel Air bi-plane...15 minutes of excellent exhilerating experience to include steep banks, lazy eight AND a stall...thank you, Ken, for your superb piloting....cost $75...worth every penny

The museum, itself, seems to go on forever so take your time and savor the experience of a well organized venue.

The docents and volunteers were EXTREMELY helpful, polite and enthusiastic.

Truly a Midwest hidden gem and a must see! My 10yr. old who is obsessed with WWII could have spent days here if we let him. To say he was in heaven was an understatement! Very well laid out museum with TONS of awesome planes and aviation information to see. He loved the hands on kid area as well where he could fly a plane simulator and sit in a cock pit. They looked like they were adding on to which we can’t wait to see what else they bring in.

This is a great museum for someone who enjoys airplanes and their history. We spent 3 hours and enjoyed every minute. I think it’s a one time visit but glad we went. Good price.

Soo much to see!
Jun 2021
Great place with a lot of history and planes on display. We paid going in and they said keep your receipt and you can go to lunch and come back. Thought it was a joke but we seriously could have spent so much time there that we needed to leave and come back.

Worth the price of admission

Great museum! Lots of planes on 2 floors of the museum, plus they take you on a tram ride across the airport to several hangers with more planes. You get a lot for the money!

I have driven past this place maybe 15 times. This time we stopped, on purpose. Planned on a whole day. Spent a whole day. Could have stayed longer.
Excellent.
Some stuff was predictable some was very surprising. Learned quite a bit.
We will be stopping in again.

And my husband was not disappointed. Excellent time to visit without ant crowds. Perhaps only four cars in the parking lot. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Rainy Weekend

I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life and have attended events on the grounds, but I had never been in the EAA museum until now. First, they have very good COVID procedures in place. The flip side of that is some of the high touch exhibits and refreshments (they let you leave and come back if you want) are closed. We went without kids so for us, that was fine. Exhibits were very good and I was surprised how much aviation history is tied to Wisconsin. They also did a great job conveying the role women have played in aviation since its inception. There is also a large gift shop with a wide variety of items.

Great Visit with Kids

We spent a Sunday afternoon here with two 8 year olds and loved it. Plenty of space to social distance, great staff, really interesting museum. I think they did a rock star job here, it's a bit of a hidden gem.
