They have many different airplanes, helicopters and vehicles from the Coast Guard. We happened to visit when the B-17 Flying Fortress flew in and were able to walk through it. It is a really nice trip to take the kids to for a few hours. There is also the Vietnam War Museum across the street.

I worked on War Birds back in late '70,s in Hanger 1. I was so impressed with how well The Doctor and Many very dedicated Volunteers have made incredible restorations, and Brand New hotel rooms overlooking the Runways! What a great Idea. One can fly their own airplane and tie down on the ramp out your room window! I especially... More

Denise S. I live in this area and have seen this site grow and improve daily. There is so much to see and take in. My grandchildren love it and they range in age from 10 - 17. Many people are not even aware that it exists, and actually is not in Wildwood, but Lower Township. There are planes and... More

No matter what age or gender this is a must see hands-on attraction. The rich history throughout is interesting and provides a new found admiration for preserving our past while educating our future generations.

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.
