If you love history, tour this museum. Even if you don't, I believe you will find it enjoyable. Best part? It's free! And very kid friendly!!! We visited on a Saturday morning around opening time. It was busy, but you couldn't tell once you walked inside. The greeters were very friendly and knowledgable. We did our own self guided tour... More

Our group was well taken care of, we were welcomed prior to the screening of the IMAX movie. Highly recommend this stop. Our only disappointment - the Blue Angels were unable to practice as scheduled due to the weather.

We love this museum - it is so interesting to learn about all of the different aircraft and to read the history on display. The hands-on opportunities for kids are great and help them focus on the information. We visited on a day the Blue Angels practiced - and WOW - we saw their whole air show for FREE. What... More

We had a great experience here with 4 kids and 2 adults. There was a lot of cool things for the kids to climb and explore. The Blue Angels fly every Tuesday or Wednesday, weather permitting. If they do not fly, there is a 4D ride which lasts about 6 minutes, but is very cool. There is also a fort... More

The place is huge, air conditioned and free! The static displays of aircraft were amazing. The cafe was o.k. The only thing that I was a little disappointed with was the 4D movie. It was about 6 minutes long and cost $7 a head. Folks with limited mobility will find it pretty easy to get around. We did get to... More

This free attraction is a must see when visiting the region, especially if you can go when the Blue Angels are practicing. Plan on spending the whole day there. If you arrive when they open, you will have a chance to see all of the planes in the main building, which takes you from WWI through the Korean War. Then,... More
