Back in 2012, I swore that I would visit the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins before my brother moved out of that town. Obviously, that didn't work out. But I finally made good on that promise to myself and visited the museum a couple of hours before closing on my way back from Jacksonville.
The museum's exhibits are surprisingly accessible. You can walk right up to some of the most impressive aircraft in U.S. Air Force history, like the A-10 and SR-71. It's the only way to appreciate the scale and power of these vehicles you see so often in movies and video games.
Exhibits cover the history of military aviation and are divided among several hangers, mostly by era. Be forewarned that some of the exhibits are a little text heavy. If you want to learn something, be prepared to read.
It was totally worth the wait. I'll be going again, hopefully with more time to spare. One of the docents told us that there would soon be an Osprey on display. That's something to look forward to!
