Interesting if you are curious about aviation history. Retired DC3 shows how air travel has changed.

EAA Air Museum - DC-3

Vintage DC-3 once served in the Berlin Airlift and later carried Grace Kelly while it was owned by a Texas millionaire. Her picture occupies the seat she is purported to have occupied.

You can climb aboard and check out what legroom used to be like.

EAA Air Museum

The Florida Keys EAA Air Museum and exhibit is a collection of several aircraft (Beech 18, DC3, an experimental project, and Cessna display model under restoration by the members) and a variety of models representing many periods of flight. There's also an extensive collection of aviation memorabilia and aviation equipment donated by "Keys" aviators and EAA Chapter 1241 members.

Almost every morning you'll find an active roundtable of local pilots drinking coffee and solving the problems of the aviation community and the world. The museum is managed and maintained by the southernmost EAA chapter and volunteers, all working hard to build interest and activity in aviation.
