Airplanes from various wars and conflicts contained in hangars at an airport. Knowledgeable volunteers are eager to talk about items. Some of the displays are "walk through".

The Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum is by far the best museum at the Jersey Shore. The aeronautical exhibits (including a copy of my father's de-icing propeller invention) are captivating. Although the collection is eclectic the museum captures the feel of the WWII era. I highly recommend it. Charles A.Poekel Jr., Esq.

The Aviation Museum was a surprise.....lots of airplanes, helicopters, etc to look at, climb into, and read about. It is not climate controlled and a little expensive.

This is worth the side trip if you have time. You can find a $2.00 off coupon in the local coupon books. Nice variety of aircraft. My husband loved it. I like the old WW11 music that was playing throughout.....

This place is an absolute must for your visit to Cape May and surrounding beaches. We had to drag our son out of the planes after almost 3 hours. All hands on and so much fun. Our son still asks to go back. We will soon! The staff is excellent and you can tell that they are passionate about everything... More

This is an actual WWII hangar (I think it's probably one of very few, if any, left). With great planes, bombers, and interactive kid activities, it's a must see site when you're in the Cape May area. Nice gift shop too.

great displays of WWII and more modern military aircraft. Introductory film was very informative. Well laid out, enables you to get up close to the displays. A real tribute to The Greatest Generation! Kudos for saving this little piece of NJ history!

We recently visited this little treasure. I thought the admission fee was reasonable. More exhibits than I thought there would be and everything was clean and well maintained. I learned a great deal about the training that took place out of Hanger 1. Our age group ranged from 6 years to 65 years and we all had a delightful afternoon.... More
