Serving as one among 257 air stations during World War II, and as one of a few specialty schools for training on the TBM/TBF Avenger aircraft, the Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale (NASFL) made a big impact in the South Florida region, and the United States as a whole. The NAS Fort Lauderdale Museum (also known as the Link Trainer Building #8), stands as the only reminder of a naval complex of more than 200 buildings.

  • Great place to see some history. Not very big, and not open every day. This place is supported by the donations they receive. Stop by and check it out!
  • Little museum packed with artifacts of history. Driven by volunteers, who are extremely nice and knowledgeable. Check out the last log of Flight 19 that was sent from that base and disappeared off Bermuda Triangle. Also a room full of memorabilia of George HW Bush who was stationed there once. Don't expect large airplanes, but this little gem will provide your family with interesting historical tidbits... Worth a detour!
