Best airplane museum in South Florida! South Florida has a lot of things but, great museums is not one of them. I finally found this place a few days ago. The place is small but, the collection is awesome. The staff is very friendly and happy to answer any questions. The highlight in my book is the museum's F-14 Tomcat, this is an awesome plane and to see it up close is incredible, they provide in a great history on the airplane as well as their airplane. The collection includes a Soviet Yak, a British Hawk Hunter, and soon to be Mig 21 that they just acquired. A lot of their aircraft are flight worthy, it is a lot like a flying club. They have crews working on different aircraft and that makes the experience awesome.

I benefitted from being the sole visitor and a tour from one of the founders. Incredible life experience translated into the planes on display, a good number of which he seems to own or has flown. That really elevated this. Otherwise, it's impressive that the planes still FLY. The museum part itself is better appreciated by a hobbyist - models, models, models; and the historical context is light. There's also a military vingette hallway that I probably could have given more time to - assuming the the videos were playing (am sure one could ask). With the personal tour, I'd call it 5 stars if you have aviation interest, without either the personal attention or interest on your part, maybe a 3. Not expensive, but you have to get out to the executive airport so weigh that in your decision.

Visited for a couple of hours on our way from Miami to Fort Myers. It is easy to find - at the Miami Executive Airport. Run by man and wife team who greeted us pleasantly and gave us information on how to proceed. It is located in one hangar with about 20 aircraft exhibits and lots of information easy to walk around and well lit. There is a small gift shop which is quite well stocked. There is no cafe but there is a drinks vending machine. There are no food outlets nearby. There are restrooms. Well worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare

This museum feels like it was created by Aviation hobbyists for hobbyists. We weren't hobbyists, yet there was enough there for about an hour educational visit. We had little kids with us, and it held there attention the whole time. There are basically three parts to this place: A large front room with displays plus a little library and store, a military museum hallway/room, and a hangar. The $10 admission fee feels a little high for its size, but these folks don't have any other way to support and expand their museum, so the extra donation felt fine. Up front as well as in the hangar you'll find hundreds of airplane models of all types and sizes. Some are in context with a little information, but most are just presented there in display cases. There are several information sections in the front room with historic items as well (of course) as models. The military hallway/room is fairly large with several displays of various types related to supporting military aviation. The hangar had maybe a dozen re-built plans of various types. There wasn't a lot of information here, so it would probably be more interesting if you arrived with a background or planned to do a google search of the planes on your phones. There were two little photo ops for kids near the door to the main room. Otherwise, it might not be so interesting for the little ones.

The small aircraft museum 'Wings Over Miami', next to Miami Executive Airport, has a number of privately-owned vintage aircraft on show in the hanger, all maintained in flying condition. The museum itself provides fascinating snippets of aviation history, including when Hurricane Andrew destroyed the hanger and caused a large amount of damage to the planes in August 1992, some of which were damaged beyond repair; while others still being restored. There is a considerable collection of model aircraft including the William Gimenez collection of pre-1959 Cubana planes. A small but fascinating museum - it would be even better to visit on one of their special events.
