This VISITOR COMMENTS section was set up to show various comments we received from some Visitor sites about their visit to our museum in Naples Airport Commercial Terminal. We invite you to see for yourself; We have thousands of Military artifacts from all branches of the Military.
The Museum is located at the Naples Municipal Airport which was originally built by the Army Corps of Engineers to train pilots for the Pacific theater in WWII.
What has begun as a Museum Honoring Military Aviation in WWII, has evolved into so much more. You can now see historical artifacts dating back to the Revolutionary War and all the way up to the present day Iraq & Afghanistan conflicts.
“What a surprise!”

We were visiting the Avis desk in the commercial terminal at Naples airport when I spotted the museum and wandered in. It is full of interesting exhibits and items donated by veterans and others. The staff are delightful and very happy to share their knowledge. I will certainly go back for another look and, if you have a spare hour, would highly recommend a visit to this great little museum in this rather surprising location……Hampshireraveller Emsworth, United Kingdom
“This place makes me proud to be American”

I stopped in one day out of pure boredom. It was rainy and humid and just wanted to see what it was about. There was an elderly man there, seemed extremely knowledgeable about military history and my guess he was a WW2 or Korean War veteran. He didn’t say, but we didn’t ask either although he was wearing a VETERAN baseball cap. There was no charge, just a box for donations which we gladly contributed. My wife and I being veterans, we learned so much more about the military on this visit. I have stopped a few times since and should maybe stop more because it is so close to home. If you are looking for something to do, stop by. You won’t be disappointed and I think this museum was well thought out when they put it together. ………Tom C Southwest Gulf Coast, Florida

“Do not miss”
Visited September 2016
What a terrific testament to the American heroes. My visit was outstanding thanks to the veterans who were there to answer questions. In my opinion this should not be tucked away in Naples airport it should have building of its own. Do not miss the opportunity to visit..

“A place in history”

This museum should have a building of it’s own. It is overstocked with memorabilia of wars, and with artifacts donated by locals…Thank JayandSam1428
“Great place for people who are interested in military memorabilia”

Small museum but very well kept and operated by mostly volunteers, who are very knowledgeable about the exhibits. There is no admission but donations are greatly appreciated. Although small you can spend an hour or so just browsing and reading all the great stuff. Makes you proud of our veterans.
“Wonderful Addition to Naples”

Went to see this when they first opened a few years ago and really enjoyed all the memorabilia. Take the time to read & absorb as much as you can as this is what makes America great. Visited again a few weeks ago when the Hurricane Hunters were at the airport. I stayed in the background as the docent asked 3 young boys several questions about our flag. They answered each one correctly and my heart swelled with pride as at that moment I knew our future would be in good hands. Their parents have taught them well and they should be very proud of the fine citizens their little people are turning into. This museum, and the Holocaust Museum of Naples, should be required visits for each and every student in Collier County. You can’t define your future if you don’t understand your past. Kudos to all those that donated their personal items to make this such a special place to visit. Daughter-in-law to a Big Red One Normandy survivor and Army Veteran myself of the Big Red One.
“Lots of stuff, good effort by many volunteer veterans”
Reviewed May 21, 2016
This is a very small museum apparently being operated primarily by volunteers. There are lots of items to see from various wars. Many deceased veterans have obviously donated items to the museum, clothing and many aircraft models and ship models. It’s a true effort by veterans to honor veterans. I was especially touched by the POW/MIA Table for One setting, a beautiful gesture, which I’ve seen before but is always moving. If you have time or are in the airport terminal building it’s worth a visit……..and it is actually located in the Naples Airport Terminal Building. ….. Ray M, Fort Walton Beach, FL

No admission, free will donation. Very nice museum with lots of things to see in a relatively small space. Went with a 60 year old and an 80 year old and spent about 90 minutes. If you like military history and memorabilia, you will find things of interest…Thank Kathy H
“Interesting Collection of Military history”
Reviewed March 21, 2016
We happened upon this exhibit by chance when we stopped by the Naples Airport terminal. The exhibit is located in two locations in the Terminal. Be sure to see both. The museum is free and open to the public. The exhibits are of memorabilia donated by individuals and their families. We found the exhibits to be quite interesting in that they have the personal touch of the people who contributed them. In the annex exhibit we were greeted by Jim C. who volunteers at the museum. Jim showed us his contribution to the museum which chronicles his personal experiences in Nicaragua. We enjoyed hearing his story………Thanks MA Gray Ghost

A great little museum situated in the terminal at the Naples Airport. There are many interesting displays and even a military vehicle or two parked outside. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly and love to engage in military history conversation. This is a must see if you enjoy WWII history. … DAN C, Northville, Michigan
