My 2 1/2 year old son and I just visited the NASW Aviation Museum and it was incredible. We live close to Washington and have been to both Air and Space Museums. I expected a small, fun exhibit.

This visit to the Aviation Museum was a unexpected pleasant surprise. Not only was walking among vintage aircraft in a vintage hangar great, the little known history of this site during WWII is amazing. Certainly made a rainy day very pleasant!

We saw this on the Cape May map and decided to stop in and see what it was all about. I am so thankful we did. It was a great place with so much history. I felt like we could have stayed for hours. There is so much to see - from planes, helicopters, vintage stuff, love letters from WWII.... More

Volunteer who gave film presentation was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. Exhibits were well displayed. Might want to consider expanding restroom space so groups can more quickly use.

We saw this ad in our resort guide and stopped by to see what was there. A lot of history! We learned a lot about this area during WWII to present day. Loved the planes there. Worth the visit!

It is a small museum, but had lots of stuff to see. Each airplane museum around the country has their own unique stuff and this is no exception.
