This place is concentrated youth. I haven't felt like this, like a kid again in over 60 years. What a place to share with the Grandkids and " I remember when" should describe my experience. Really a great place to relive one's younger days and realize that many of us are still living that life.

I went there and watched people fly their RC helicopters and planes in the flying fields. The property is vast and well-kept.

We had judging school (seminar) here and was excellently done by Mike Karnes and Bill Teeter along with help from others (I don't remember all there names). This was the first time I went through the museum! Very nice

This is a nice little museum hidden in Muncie, IN. I highly recommend visiting if you have never been. Even if you are not into model airplanes, this is still a great place to visit and the kids will love it. Friendly and helpful staff and it even has a gift shop with plenty of goodies to choose from. While... More

Nice little place, fun first date for me and my now girlfriend. Would recommend to any family that wants to take some kids to a fun place and learn some history, especially for aspiring aviators.

We were blown away by the quantity and quality of models on display - hundreds and hundreds - only to find out they have twice that many more that they aren't able to display for lack of space. They rotate models periodically as a result. The displays are well-done and very informative and start with models that were created shortly... More

It was a distict pleasure to find this nicely set up museum contained within such a world class facility. I brought my niece, who is fascinated with flight, on a Saturday afternoon last fall. She was fascinated with all of the displays, but when she was actually able to "interact" with the simulators she was over the moon! The price... More

This museum is NOT family friendly. The staff are not accommodating. The staff are rude. Today was my first time visiting and I will not be returning. My friend, our 3 children and I were basically chased out of the museum today because we were eating a snack in spare room. We asked for permission from the front desk staff,... More

I have visited the AMA for 3 years with my children. We normally go and explore, then have a snack, then explore some more. We have always had a lovely time and the staff has always been helpful and encouraging. Until today. The staff that we saw there today were unfamiliar to us. We entered the museum and put our...
