Travel + Leisure lists EAA Aviation Museum among 10 best aviation museums in U.S.


EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (March 22, 2024) — 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 is very proud of our museum and the work that we are doing here each day to preserve aviation history,” 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.
