International Sport Aviation Museum

Description

This museum and research facility displays approximately 35 small aircraft, including home-built planes, antiques (both original and replicas), military planes, and several ultra-lights. You'll also find aviation memorabilia, aircraft engines, and exhibits on the history of flying. The research facility includes a collection of more than 30,000 magazines and books. The museum is open from 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday, 10-4 Saturday, and noon to 4 PM Sunday. Admission is charged. It's located on the southwest corner of Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. Each spring, the airspace over the museum comes to buzzing, roaring life as the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In brings thousands of personal aircraft to Lakeland. This week-long convention sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association is widely acknowledged to be the second largest fly-in event in the world. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to see the daily air shows and to admire close-up the show planes, antiques, classics, warbirds, helicopters, seaplanes, and homebuilts flown in from all over the United States, Canada, and several other countries.
