American Air Power Museum
Sixty-five years ago, the current home of the American Airpower Museum was a crucial part of aircraft manufacturing for our nation’s military—the complex produced over 9,000 P-47 Thunderbolts in Farmingdale. The "Jug", as it was lovingly nicknamed for its massive assembly line construction, went on to defeat the best pilots in the German Luftwaffe. Today, no American aviation museum with a squadron of operational World War II aircrafts has a more appropriate setting for its flight operations. Now you can plan your next event anniversary, wedding, corporate outing, or other celebration at the American Airpower Museum and take a walk through history in an authentic WWII airplane hangar. Planes move around or can be stationed outside (weather permitting) to allow the perfect set up for your very special event. Your guests can see these “warbirds” up close, and the guests of honor can even arrange special flight experiences.

First off, if you’re into aviation, the AAM is just about the coolest place you can go! They have some really amazing old planes in their collection. The Thunderbolt is awesome, and I just love the Prowler. They also do air shows every year. We made it out to one a couple of years ago, and it was one of the best I’ve seen. I’ve been to a couple dozen, and my dad actually has flown in a few, so I know what I’m talking about here! The flight experiences are amazing, by far the coolest thing I’ve ever seen at any aviation museum. You can go up in a historical aircraft, and even do a D-Day re-enactment. Let me tell you, that was a day to remember! I’ve never done anything even remotely like it before, and it really gave me a new appreciation for what our heroes went through! Anyway, you can also rent the AAM for your private event, which was what I was getting around to talking about! They do kids’ parties, corporate parties, everything—even weddings, I think. We chose to bring our employees here. A lot of the guys at work are big into aviation, and most of them had been to the museum more than once, and love coming here at the drop of a hat. So we didn’t even really consider any other options after we found out that the museum does do private events! The event went off just as planned without a hitch, and we had a really great time throwing it all together. The staff were very accommodating and willing to let us pretty much do what we wanted, and they also had lots of activities for everyone. We had a lot of families coming, and they were awesome with the kids. You really are not going to come up with a more fun option for a corporate party, especially if you’re in defense or another related field. The museum provides your party with an instant theme, lots to see and do, and a guarantee that nobody will be bored. The all-in-one package also saved us money since we didn’t need to worry about entertainment or anything. This place is all the entertainment you need. So if you haven’t been to the museum, check it out. If you’re planning a party, you’ve found the perfect choice. And if you are just looking for something amazing to do with a day off, you’ve found that too.

We hosted a corporate party here and had a great time. We thought of it because a lot of the guys at work are into aviation, and it seemed like a cool idea. Something a little different, and something that the families could enjoy. We had fun just checking out the venue! The staff were amazing and did a great job setting the place up to accommodate everyone. The exhibits are amazing, and the event had a great ambiance because of all the history they have here. The guys at the office are still talking about it and so are my kids. I’m definitely going to talk to Janet about a kids’ party for my son’s upcoming birthday.
