“History come to life”

DeLand Naval Air Station Museum
Ranked #17 of 78 things to do in DeLand
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 August 2017

This is a small military history museum, but packed full of artifacts and information. Harold is a wonderful tour guide! Aside from all that is inside, there is a PT boat which is undergoing restoration and a hangar with a helicopter, aircraft and a jeep which have been restored. An artillery gun is also on display in the yard. The older gentlemen who volunteer there have lived much of the history and have very interesting stories. Worth your time!

When me and my girlfriend first pulled up we say a small 1930s house and didn't now if it was going to be worth it. Boy we're we surprised ! I've been to the smithsonian in DC. And quite a few others. Let me tell you they didn't compare at all to the DNAS.

Harold's one of the nicest, most knowledgeable and intelligent person we've ever met. Having a tour by him and getting explained how every single item that interest you works, or the background information with it is incredible. We honestly learned so much. Ask any question you'd like, related to the military ! Harold knows it.

The hangar in the back is incredible where you can get so close to decommissioned planes and a Korean era helicopter.

We missed the pancakes at Deleon springs for the museum and it was definitely worth it !

If you stop her be sure to speak to the people running it. They are experienced and have a great story to tell. They have some old equipment they are restoring and they really give you a feel for the airplanes and equipment displayed.

One of the few places you can see an F 14 Tomcat on static display. I also found the Vietnam era PT boat they are restoring fascinating.
