For this special day, the museum entrance fee will be lowered to $3.00 for kids and $7.00 for adults.

Because several of our planes will be out of the hangar visiting an airshow in North Florida, we are asking other pilots with planes on the airport to taxi over and join in a “show and tell” for the kids. Several of the museum’s pilots and tour guides will be available answer questions about aviation.
