My kids loved this place! It was raining so we decided to check it out. The rocker ship was their favorite. The educational video, the gift shop all fun. We will definitely come back again. Hopefully when its not raining.

Upon arriving I thought I walked back into time. The museum was housed in the original hanger for the flight training of Dive Bombers during of... More

My family visits Wildwood and Cape May every summer (and has for many years) and every year since we've found it our kids have wanted to come back to the Air Museum. They really enjoyed going up into the tower and speaking to each other on the intercoms and having the opportunity to step into some of the aircraft (like... More

Loved the museum. It has interactive displays and kids of all ages (even 3) enjoyed. There are special events weekends and actual WWII planes with knowledgeable personnel available.

In this museum you can climb into dozens of planes and helicopters, and walk around more. Gift shop is small but has some great items for kids as well. There is an aging section on the physics of flight donated by the Franklin institute, but the planes are the thing.

A really great place to visit, rainy day or not! This place is great, a real experience. LOVE the searchlight and watch tower, that you can actually climb to! They acquire new displays, and craft all of the time. Events too, love this place.

The Naval Air Station Wildwood in Cape May County is well worth the visit. The children will enjoy the displays even though some of the interactive displays are broken or worn out. The Coast Guard interactive, "Fly the Airplane" is new and works well.

I was happy to see some different things since my visit in April. Or perhaps I missed them the first time around. I brought my son with me this time, and our dog again. We all enjoyed the museum very much! It's truly a wonderful place to visit!
