Sunday was officially Veterans Day, but the national holiday is still being celebrated today. Go check out Jamie Bovshow’s roundup of five military museums across the USA where families can celebrate, remember and pay homage to our nation’s finest. Remember these museums are open year-round, so it doesn’t need to be Veterans Day to you to get out there an honor our troops all year long.
1. NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE U.S. AIR FORCE
The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio is the world’s largest military aviation museum, with more 400 aerospace vehicles on display. Here you’ll find various galleries that boast exhibits from all generations of aviation history, including Early Years, Cold War, Presidential, Modern Flight, and Missile and Space Galleries.
Outside, the museum’s Memorial Park includes gardens and walkways that incorporate over 500 memorials, plaques, trees and benches that honor those who have served in the U.S. Air Force.
The museum’s more hair-raising attractions include an IMAX theater and a Morphis MovieRide flight simulator, where family members of all ages can climb into the cockpit and experience the thrill of flying.
