The EAA Aviation Museum, formerly the EAA AirVenture Museum (or Air Adventure Museum), is a museum dedicated to the preservation and display of historic and experimental aircraft as well as antiques, classics, and warbirds.

With over 200 aircraft, indoors and outdoors, and other exhibits and activities (including occasional aircraft rides nearby), the AirVenture Museum is a key tourist attraction in Oshkosh and is a center of activity throughout the AirVenture fly-in and airshow each summer.

  • This place was huge! It was the size of 4-5 aircraft hangers. We thought the museum was big to begin with, with a room full of general aviation aircraft. But then we walked into another HUGE hanger...  more »
  • Have been aware of EAA for many years and finally got here! Very interesting displays...WASPS, Frank Borman, Huey's, and so much more. The lady selling tickets and gift shop purchases was helpful...  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.
