Very family friendly. Some exhibits kids (and adults too if they can fit) can climb in planes or helicopters to see the pilots view. Interesting short film in the beginning explains the history of the Air Station while you sit in old airplane seats, very informal. I was shocked at how much aviation history they have and how much I... More

Great to see old planes as well as a display from NASA and the U.S. Coast Guard. And, yes, there really is a museum kitty that just kind of hangs around and is very friendly.

My husband and I visited this aviation museum on a rainy beach day. We really enjoyed the variety of historical aircraft and were so impressed by the growth in the museum since we last visited in 2005. The Director, Dr J. Salvatore, offered a personal tour and answered all of our questions. It's fabulous to hear about his future plans... More

Our boys, ages 9 and 7, spent a good hour and a half in this museum. They LOVED being able to get inside so many of the planes and jeeps, and it was great to not wait in any kinds of lines! I enjoyed reading the historical displays. At only $7 admission, this museum is a great deal.

A wonderful museum dedicated to those that trained there during WWII. One of the exhibits is the hangar itself, having been built in the early 1940's. There is a nice variety of aircraft, boats and helicopters from the 20th century, as well as other period exhibits. The staff was very friendly. Most of the vehicles on display can either be... More

Had a great time at the museum; it's well worth the admission price. A lot of hands-on stuff for active kids! I read about the dive-bomber training in the book The Pacific by Hugh Ambrose, so it was neat to be there and see the Avenger all polished up in the hangar. Impressive variety of aircraft and other flying machines... More

When in Cape May, NJ, NAS Wildwood Aviation Museum is a must see whether your an aviation buff or not. There is a lot of history that is very interesting to learn. The aircraft they have are really cool also. They have interactive displays for the kids and the adults enjoy them also.

It is a great educational experience!!! they also hold a week long can your child will talk about for the rest of their lives. If you visit the Jersey shore and have never... More

Take a look back at some forgotten soilders in history and then walk through the hangar and get up close and personal with planes from many different years and armed forces. Great for the kids.
