Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum
The only Military Museum in Broward County.
The Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum is on the U.S National Register of Historic Places and a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Its mission is to develop and maintain an internationally recognized Naval Aviation Museum that educates young and old alike, to preserve history by honoring the memory of Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale and the men & women who defended freedom during World War II. This Museum has also been instrumental in preserving the memory of Flight 19, one of the great aviation mysteries. Flight 19 flew out of NASFL on 5 December 1945, to vanish into the Bermuda Triangle. In addition, 19 year old future U.S President George H.W. Bush lived at this base as an Ensign in the summer of 1943 to train as a torpedo/bomber pilot.
