Located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at the site of the world's largest aviation event (EAA AirVenture) the Museum is one of the most extensive aviation attractions in the world, a year-round destination for the entire family. Come and explore our world-class displays and galleries. Marvel at aviation innovations in our collection of more than 200 historic airplanes. Spend time in one of our four movie theaters. Take a ride in a vintage airplane at Pioneer Airport-a real working aerodrome right out of the "golden age" of aviation. Witness a piece of history in the Eagle Hangar, our tribute to World War II aviation and get "hands on" in the KidVenture Gallery, our exciting interactive gallery for kids of all ages!

We really love coming to the museum because of the aviation history and the hopes of the kids getting in the simulator or the Young Eagles flights outside. But we really like making the visit a treasure hunt of sorts with all the displays! Can...More

I went here for a banquet and wish i had more time to see the museum plus the rest of what the EAA has to offer. This is a precious organization that deserves support; for the museum and the mission.

Oshkosh was an unexpected visit (tire #4 had ended up on the highway and Oshkosh could replace it). We had a just a few hours to spend there and didn't have time to see all of the great plane exhibits because we ended up taking...More

This is one of the best air museums in the country. The layout is very easy to navigate. They break it into experimental, space, fighter, and barnstorming/aerobatics. There is a bit of walking involved, but you hardly notice because you are too busy being amazed....More

SO much to see!! Anyone who thinks this museum is a quick walk through, think again. The downfall is there is only a vending machine to take a snack break at. Even if you are not really into aviation, you will be caught up in...More

The museum was a fun detour from our annual boys trip to Airventure. The exhibits were interesting and the staff was friendly. The gift shop was ok.

If you have any interest in the history of aviation and are near Oshkosh Wisconsin, you need to stop here (conveniently immediately off Interstate 41.) More than 200 planes are on display, from 1912 models to more current planes. I always enjoy studying the World...More

You cannot pass Oshkosh without a stop at the EAA facilities, like aviation or not, a must see. One of the best Museums i've seen including the DC Air and Space.

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
