The EAA is full of cool planes and stories to go with them. Airventure is more fun than you can imagine. The crowds are always great and the grounds are clean. Can't beat Airventure for good family... more »
Visited Oshkosh WI EAA museum, moved by WWII exhibits, saw unique traveling original WWII bomber & fighter nose art exhibit, art was on original aircraft sheet metal, stunning, world class museum. Found plenty of parking for our truck camper. We stumbled upon a wedding in progress at the museum. Looked like a great venue to have a wedding. Windy outside blew their fabric runner, started to sprinkle. Hope their special day went well. I was very moved by the exhibit dedicated to Operation Overlord, the D Day Invasion. Saw well-preserved German and Japanese weapons and uniforms.
I loved this place so much. I would come back again in a heart beat. They have a little something for all ages. Good mix of older planes and self made planes as well. They even have options for an additional 75 to go up in a plane with one of the experienced pilots here.
