The American Airpower Museum is an aviation museum located on the former site of Republic Aviation at Republic Airport in East Farmingdale, New York. It maintains a collection of aviation artifacts and an array of aircraft spanning the many years of the aircraft factory's history.

The museum has many static displays which include a Republic F-84 first generation jet fighter, a rare example of the swept-wing RF-84F reconnaissance variant, and a Republic F-105 Thunderchief. The last production aircraft was the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II.

The museum has a group of volunteers which includes both former Republic workers and veterans of all branches of the military. A flight experience is available on board a C-47 aircraft which actually flew during the Normandy invasion on D-Day.

  • This museum is at Republic airport - you can see the airstrip, takeoffs and landings. The museum is smaller, and less officious and more focused than Cradle of Aviation. At the same time it is is much more interactive. You can enter or climb into many planes, touch and handle guns and equipment and even use a flight simulator together with the one of the staff member. The staff is very friendly, helpful and engaging. Parking is next to the museum. We came mid-day on Sunday but there were several empty lots. The museum has a small gift shot
  • I've driven past this place a bunch of times in my life. Finally had some family over and decided it was time. A very good place to spend some time, full of interactive things and historical pieces from the wars of old and the history of long island. It doesn't even take too long to see a lot of stuff. Very kid friendly. I definitely recommend
