Aerospace Discovery at Florida Air Museum

4175 Medulla Rd, Lakeland, FL 33811

Aerospace Discovery at Florida Air Museum (previously known as Florida Air Museum) is designated as Florida's "Official Aviation Museum and Education Center." It features a display of aircraft including one-of-a-kind designs, classics, ultra-lights, antiques and warbirds. The museum is located on the campus of the Sun 'n Fun, a non-profit education organization that supplies much of the funding for the museum's collections and programs. The campus is located at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport.

The main building holds much of the collection, especially smaller aircraft like a Boeing-Stearman Model 75 from the Red Baron Pizza aerobatic team. A wide variety of unique designs, homebuilts, and even a Mercury rocket motor share the display floor. They are supplemented by a collection of engines from World War I to the present day. The hangar annex houses larger aircraft and engines. The aircraft date from as early as 1913. The Aerospace Attic Research Library includes books, manuals, magazines, photographs, and other resources. It's available by appointment.
