The title says it all. I could spend months in here. I have never seen so many aircraft and other stuff in an aviation museum before. They have two buildings packed and a flight line full of aircraft, stop by and say high to President Nixon on the presidential helicopter. You can wonder around on your own or take a... More

I loved this museum. It was very information and lots to do and see. I was tired when I left from all of the walking but it was amazing. I tried the Blue Angels ride and I felt like I was flying it was really fun. It's a must see and definitely one of the highlights from my trip to... More

This place is absolutely amazing! I don't even know where to begin. First of all it's free, yes I said free! There are so many planes to see. There's the Blue Angels, Marine 1, a stealth, a harrier jet just to name a few. There are lots of cutaways to sit in and get a feel of what it's like... More

Fantastic array of planes thoughout war time from the little tin can looking ones to the ultra modern stealth bomber. These planes are hanging from the ceilings, displayed on the grounds along with other war time exhibits. The museum is free and there are free tours given by retired military. The museum is kind of centered around The Blue Angels... More

It was a very interesting event. We saw the Blue Angels, but it was extremely hot. So hot, that I wish I had brought an umbrella to protect myself from the excruciating sun. Get there early on the days they fly so you can get a seat. The museum was huge! You can't see everything in one day. My boys... More

Expect to stare at everything. I just loved all the aircraft, including displaying other countries planes. Plan to spend allllllll day. Catch a tour with a vet, or just wander around in awe. Love the Corsair! If you can, watch the blue angels practice. Thrill a minute!
