Loved spending time here. We started out on a narrated tour but decided to drop out and do it at our own pace. That gave us plenty of time to browse & read the plaques at each plane at our leisure. Planes small, big & huge are well displayed with lots of supporting material. IMAX was closed, unfortunately, and several... More

An amazing venue displayed to entertain young and old. Everyone in your group will be thrilled. Plan plenty of time, eat lunch at the cubi club, experience aviation in the simulators, see an IMAX movie. Get a tour next door at the National Flight Academy but call ahead first. Then go see the lighthouse. Plan for the entire day.

This was very nice, takes about an hour or so and is free! Has a nice store for souvenirs too. I would recommend you take the time to see the museum.

With 150 full-sized original or replica planes, this free museum is a must for children of all ages who love planes and America history. The museum celebrates American achievement in aviation from the first plane to cross the Atlantic Ocean, to the Sopwith Camels of WWI and through the rise of the Aircraft Carrier planes. The displays are stunning and... More

Planes look cool and it's free to get in. Everything else you have to pay for: giftshop, cafe, and simulators. A lot of blue angle stuff.

My son (retired military) and friends and I LOVED this museum. The exhibits are so informative and interesting. One could spend a whole day here absorbing the triumphs, glories, successes, joys and sorrows of our naval history. What a privilege to be able to experience these wonders. Again, it made me proud to be an American! The personnel were extremely... More

Absolutely a must do. Free admission, donations accepted. Fly a simulator, sit in cockpits, and wander through our history of Naval Aviation. Amazing aircraft up close.

This is a must to see for any fan of aviation. There are so many interesting planes, that you can spend a day easily here. People were helpful, constant ID checking a little bit funny (OK, we are on the active base... but there are ways to do it more clever way). Our guide in the tram was very knowledgeable... More
