Come visit us at The Museum of Military Memorabilia. We have thousands of military artifacts from all branches of the Military. The Museum is located in the Naples Municipal Airport which was originally built by the Army Corps of Engineers to train pilots for the pacific theater in WWII.

2012 marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Naples Airport as a WWII Army Air Forces Training Base.
