Kissimmee Air Museum.
If you are at all interested in aviation then put Kissimmee Air Museum on your ' to do' list and you can look forward to a treat on your next visit. This museum will not be too far from any villa that you are staying in.
Here you can take control of a World War 2 air plane while sitting in the front cockpit. Rather surprisingly, there is no experience required to do this.
Here is an idea; if your Florida visit is still in the planning stages, why not surprise your partner by booking a flight for him as an awesome birthday or Christmas gift? He would not forget that one!
They also put on various displays and have an interesting array of exhibits and of course you are surrounded by people who are passionate about aviation and will happily answer your questions.
Among the aircraft that are still flying are a North A SNJ6, Ryan P T -22, a Fokke Wolf 190A3 and a Boeing Stearman P. /T M.
On display but not flying are a Mig 17 f Fresco, a Focke Wolf 19 oa 3 and a Boeing Stearman P T. M.
Among the many artefacts are a Kinner radial piston engine, a machine gun collection, an M. G. 17 ejector seat and some test equipment.
The museum is open from 9. A. M. to 5 P. M. monday to saturday. From november to june you can also visit on a saturday. They are closed Christmas Day, New Years Day and Thanksgiving.
Kissimmee Air Museum is located just over 7 miles east of the I. 4 (exit 64) on Hoagland Road so as you can see pretty central.

If you check on their website www. kissimmeeairmuseum. com there are often special offers. For instance, as I write, they are offering half price admission and if booking a flight the second person flies at 50 per cent off.
And girls, if aviation bores you then leave the guys here while you do some serious shopping without being mithered! Give those credit cards a bashing, eh? Then you can re convene for a long lunch (make the guys treat you! )
All in all this museum will be a great change from the (wonderful) theme parks and make your holiday a little more memorable!
