One thing you should know about Warner Robins: It is big on the Air Force and aviation. Warner Robins was named after Brigadier General Augustine Warner Robins, the Air Force’s “father of logistics.” Warner Robins was built around the Robins Air Force Base. It’s also home to the Museum of Aviation, the US Air Force’s second-biggest aerospace museum and the “fourth most visited museum in the Department of Defense”, according to the Museum of Aviation website https://www.museumofaviation.org
The Museum of Aviation is 51 acres and 5 different buildings of airplane, aviation, astronaut, and history fans’ paradise, with fighter jets, bomber planes, drones, spacecraft, helicopters, spy planes and other aircraft, numbering at 93 at the time of this article. It is a great place to go for both kids and adults. They also have a virtual reality simulator ride that allows people to see what it’s like to be an astronaut on the exterior of the International Space Station.
For kids, they offer birthday parties, summer STEM camps “Science with Santa,” and other events aimed towards kids. The Museum of Aviation also houses the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame, which we could have easily made an additional item on this list. The GAHF “recognizes aviation pioneers and contributors associated with the state of Georgia,” and is a “Who’s Who” of aviators who are either from Georgia, or made their contribution in Georgia.
The Museum of Aviation is on the air force base, which is technically it’s own zip code and territory. The Museum of Aviation is located at 1942 Heritage Blvd, Robins AFB, GA 31098.
