Feeling grounded? Let your spirits soar at the Wings Over Miami Air Museum!
Located at Miami Executive Airport, the museum is open to the public and ready for action.
If you’re looking for activities that don’t break the bank, this might be a good choice – especially if you have flying fanatics in the family!
Tickets cost $10 for general admission, $7 for seniors older than 60, and $6 for children age 12 and younger. Group rates and annual memberships also are available.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays, but there’s a 4:30 p.m. ticket cut-off time.
Tour the museum’s growing collection, which includes vintage planes, military trainers, and jet aircraft from the Cold War era. There are flyable aircraft as well as static displays.
In 2020, the museum acquired a Soviet-era supersonic MIG-21 fighter, which arrived disassembled from Lakeland, Fla., according to its official website. The museum plans to reassemble the plane publicly, then display it, and is seeking donations for packing, shipping and reassembly costs. If you’re interested in making a donation, click here for more information.
