I went with my 7 year old grandson and he had a wonderful time climbing into various airplanes and interacting with other children. It's a great place to visit with or without children!

This was by far the coolest attraction we went to. Our children (all 3) enjoyed themselves here! The were able to go in and out of various planes, helicopters, and even boats. I love the fact that they had big precaution signs and also accessible bathrooms. My oldest is 5 and the twins are 3 so we really needed easy... More

A wonderful living museum - brings aviation, patriotism and family adventure together. We are fans of the NASW - once you visit - you will be too!

This museum was a total surprise and delight. It is a hangar packed with real - and play - war planes, helicopters, hummers, etc. It was incredibly cool and interesting for the adults in our group learning about the different vehicles and displays from various wars - like the roles of women in WWII, etc. But most importantly, this was...

This was a great museum! Not only did it have a lot of planes, it also had many you could actually look into (stairs) and even sit in! We had to pry the children out of there because it was closing time. We will definately go back again next year!

A little disorganized. Like so much else in Cape May this is totally over priced. Seems like a total hodgepodge of material with no real organization. They have a bunch of Coast Guard stuff that has little or nothing to do with aviation thrown in to use space, it seems. Off the beaten path. Not worth the effort, time, or... More

This is a relatively small (in size) airplane and helicopter museum with some important and some not so important aircraft. Cost is about $12/adult. If you see the brochure, it highlights all of the important aircraft, though they are all indoors, not outdoors as pictured. I thought several of the displays could have used a lot more explanation to indicate... More
