My wife & I enjoyed touring the museums. The flight line trolley tour was great too & the tour guide/driver was a hoot! Will definitely come back again as we didn't get to spend as much time here as we would have liked.

This is by far one of my most favorite places to visit. I think my 8th visit, and it never gets old. Plenty for kids and adults to see and do. This is not just for airplane lovers but anyone interested in US history. If you are an airplane lover, this place will make your heart skip beats!!! Highly recommend... More

This place is amazing!! Aircraft from all eras. The guides were extremely friendly and helpful. The family spent almost five hours there and I still think we missed some stuff. This is one of those places that really does have something for everyone. Plus it's free!! We weren't there for the practice, just the museum. Do not miss this!!

Went here with a group of 35 Navy veterans and not surprisingly, everyone loved it. The museum is huge and includes an amazing number and variety of planes and displays that pretty much answers every question about naval aviation and it's history you could ever want to ask. Our gang were WWII through Vietnam era destroyer crew members but they... More

The museum is free but does ask for a donation. The simulators and the movies do charge a fee but for what you are getting are well worth the price. This museum has planes hanging every where including the Blue Angels flying in formation. You can experience what it would be like on a carrier deck during flight operations. Most... More

I saw this on TripAdvisor before we left the UK, and managed to combine our visit with a practice session by the Blue Angels after looking at their website. Absolutely awesome! They performed for 45 minutes and then we went all round the museum - most interesting. And it was free! Very informative and well organised.

Literally hundreds of planes to look over. If you enjoy history, then this is a must see museum. Easy access parking, child friendly and moderate entrance fee. Wonderful place to take children; take them out of regular school and let them explore our American history in ways a book can not adequately capture their mind.

We have visited the museum before. The improvements, added space, new exhibits and interactive activities have greatly enhanced the experience. The number and types of airplanes has been updated and pretty much all of them are hands on. This is definitely a must for Naval, Marine and aviation enthusiasts.

This wonderful, free museum offers close up encounters for air, space, and military enthusiasts, with planes both inside and outside of the building. An IMAX theater onsite also makes the visit worthwhile, and entertains all ages. The Blue Angels practice behind the facility on Tuesdays/Wednesdays scheduled throughout the year, and sign autographs afterward, also at no charge. The museum honors... More
