At the Military Heritage & Aviation Museum, our goal is to ensure that future generations continue to express that gratitude.

A Whole New Experience!


Visit our new location located at 900 W. Marion Ave. in Punta Gorda Fl. This magnificent building has over 17,000 sq. ft of exhibit and activity areas.


The Military Heritage Museum is so much more than just a museum! It is an education-centered institution that works directly with local schools and other organizations to offer history and STEM based inter-active learning experiences to students of all ages. The Museum is also a performance arts center which, through live performances in its theater, provides impactful and moving experiences utilizing theater, music and documentaries focusing on US heritage and history. The Museum serves as a direct conduit to providing human services to meet the needs of Veterans through facilitating, hosting, and sponsoring several Veteran organizations. The Museum is a community gathering place, hosting many other organizations who utilize the museum’s facility to reach out to their constituents

On the first level, take a walk-through history through three unique galleries; from the Revolutionary War through modern conflicts. Visit the Hall of Heroes and its special Medal of Honor exhibit. On the second level become part of history through simulations and virtual reality utilizing our aircraft, tank, and range simulators. In the Advanced Individual Training School, “fly” a F-16 or P-51 Mustang, command the helm of a Navy destroyer,  take a parachute jump, experience the laser range, or drive a tank – four incredible simulations and virtual reality experiences. The second level also includes the War Room, home of the Museum’s Kids Discovery Zone and virtual reality exhibits as well as the full-service Academy Library with its over 5000 books and publications and computer-interactive activities
