EAA Aviation Museum Gets A Plug From Travel Media

Named Among 10 Best Aviation Museums in US

To those who visit Oshkosh, the general consensus is that the trip is not complete without a jaunt to the EAA Museum... and many outside of aviation now seem to agree. 

The EAA Aviation Museum in Oshkosh has been named one of the nation’s 10 best aviation museums by Travel + Leisure in a feature published on its website on March 14.

The feature, 10 Best Aviation Museums Around the U.S., highlights the choices of the Travel + Leisure staff, as well as aviation historians and experts. The list includes museums in nine states and the District of Columbia.

“The recognition from Travel + Leisure is much appreciated, as EAA takes great pride in our facility and telling the story of personal flight from the Wright brothers to space missions,” said Chris Henry, EAA Aviation Museum manager. “We continue to develop and enhance our exhibits to create an even better connection to the rich legacy and promising future of aviation. This recognition is a credit to our staff, volunteers, and EAA members who have made this a unique home for those who enjoy the world of flight.”

The Travel + Leisure recognition is the latest for the EAA facility, as it has been highlighted by CNN Travel as one of the 20 Best Aviation Museums Around the World and earlier this year as a top aviation museum by Group Travel Leader.

Along with its extensive aircraft collection, the EAA museum is noted for its seasonal Pioneer Airport operation, which allows visitors to take flight in a vintage biplane and young people ages 8-17 to enjoy Young Eagles flights. The museum is also a center of activity during the annual EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in, which brings more than 10,000 aircraft and an attendance surpassing 600,000 to Oshkosh each July.
