Homeschool Fieldtrip for Aircraft Lovers

Aircrafts

This week we visited the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia. It is the second-largest aerospace museum of the United States Air Force. The Museum of Aviation is a great place for kids to learn about historical events like the Vietnam War, the Korean War, and WWII, among many others. There’s also great information regarding different types of military aircrafts, notable veterans, and African American servicemen. All-in-all, our family really enjoyed this fieldtrip. Especially my boys who are really into military vehicles and airplanes.

The museum’s campus includes outdoor aircraft exhibits, monuments, a playground, a picnic area, a café, some classrooms, and five buildings that house a variety of exhibits.  We did not get to see everything, but what we did see was very impressive. Our favorites were the Aviation Cadet Training exhibit, the Down to Earth exhibit, and the Scott Exhibit Hangar WWII, which had amazing aircrafts. All exhibits were very informative and eye-catching. Some exhibits were even interactive, which the kids loved.

Lastly, I must talk about the staff. We did not schedule a tour because we decided to view the exhibits at our own leisure. Those working behind the info desk were very helpful and even recommended their favorite exhibits. They definitely made the large campus less intimidating. So a huge thank you to the volunteer staff because their recommendations were on point. Below, I’ve shared some pictures that I took with my iPhone. Of course, they don’t do these exhibits any justice, but at least I have something to look back on.
