Support a local treasure – take the time to check out Wings Over Miami Air Museum

Out in Kendall there is a little museum called Wings Over Miami Air Museum. It is located on the west side of the Kendall Tamiami Executive Airport. 

Wings Over Miami is a unique little museum, unlike anything else around South Florida. The best part about the museum is that a great number of their exhibits are in flying condition. This museum brings history to life.

Visitors to the museum get an up-close look at planes that most people only see on television, in the movies or history books.

During special events and sometimes on the weekends, museum guests will see an exhibit roll out and taxi out as it prepares to take off. Almost always during the week there are mechanics working on planes, tweaking the engines and restoring the bodies to their former glory.

Wings Over Miami brings to the community and to our community’s tourists a friendly peek into years gone by. This museum of special aircraft is a true memorial to the glory days of military aviation and our veterans. Veterans are urged to contact the museum and become a part of the volunteer team who so wonderfully augment the museum’s story.

The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Sundays, noon to 5:00 p.m. For more information, go to and
