Feeling grounded by our new normal? 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.
To keep up with latest news, sign up for the daily Miami on the Cheap newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter.
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.
Just last month, 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.
The museum, at 14710 SW 128th St., reopened back in June and announced it had adopted COVID-19 safety guidelines. For more on these safety guidelines or other information, go to Wingsovermiami.com or Facebook.com/WingsOverMiami, or call (305) 233-5197.
From Planes to Trains …
Have you ever visited the Gold Coast Railroad Museum? Tickets to ride a train range from $5 to $12 per ticket. It’s great for any train enthusiast, Thomas the Train lover or young kids. The food is reasonably priced (Frankie’s pizza food truck!) and there are plenty of trains to explore. For details, click here.
