We were staying in Koehler, WI and thought this would be a fun day trip with our 12-year old twins. Little did we know when we got to the museum that they offered free flights to children (I believe between the ages of 7-17) with...More

We were recently in the Green Bay area, and decided to stop by the EAA air museum. We have been there in the past, only during the very busy EAA annual summer fly-ins. The off-season is a pleasant surprise, as there are no crowds and...More

The museum itself is very good. We visited last year and my then 13-year-old daughter went up in a Young Eagles flight, free flights offered for kids to encourage their interest in aviation. We were told the only limit was she could only do one...More

I love the muesum. The library downstairs is good too. Lots of aviation books. Grew up close by so always look forward to the EAA every year. Will be back, as always.

This is really interesting if you're into aviation. Enjoyed looking at the airplanes and historical items. My 9-year old is now a Young Eagle. Best part of the visit!

The EAA Museum is a very interesting way to spend an afternoon. There are lots of planes, lots of plane art and history. There is an interactive play area for children with flight simulators. Very educational, but also enjoyable.

Yes, there is electricity in the showers. It's Wisconsin, and we joke that if you don't like the weather just wait an hour - it will change! Typical weather in July is daytime temps of 65-85, nighttime temps down to low... More

Hello, We are planning a trip to Oshkosh in 2016 for the Air show as well as visiting the museum & any other sights of interest in that area. We live in Queensland, Australia & recently hired a motor home for a couple of weeks & attended the Classic fighters show at Omaka in New Zealand and apparently ninety-eight percent of people there had been to Oshkosh & we were the only two who hadn't .... yet! We've been to quite a few other airshows in different places around the world ie. Farnborough, Kanehoe Bay, Hawaii, Avalon, Melbourne as well as a variety of other smaller shows around the place. So now we have the idea firmly planted in our minds we'll be heading your way soon, we would just like a bit of help & advise please on what is the best way to get there, we plan on hiring a motor home & doing the glamping thing again for the duration of the show, so we need to know which is the best most easily accessible airport to land at near there & do you recommend somewhere we can hire a motor home from which is near at hand or even on site, to help minimize driving there. Also how early can we book a powered, watered site please? In eager anticipation of a positive response. Regards Carole & Les
