Have you visited the new Naples Museum of Military Memorabilia? The museum is located at the Naples Municipal Airport Commercial Aviation Terminal, 500 Terminal Drive off North Road. Hours are Monday to Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday noon-4 p.m.

The airport commissioners have generously provided a room to display a fascinating collection of military artifacts donated by veterans and their families.

The museum was dedicated on Veteran's Day, Nov, 11, 2011. Over 1,200 people visited during the opening.

A little history. During World War II the Naples Airport served as a U.S. Army Corps training base and was known as the Naples Airdrome. In 1942 it was a U.S. Army Airforce training base

If you have visiting friends or relatives in town and want a great local history experience stop by the museum. The museum is a non-profit organization and will graciously accept donations of money or memorabilia.
