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

Great museum for viewing old planes and history. Sometimes there are old WWII planes and WW I planes for you to take a ride. The admission is not cheap but it is well worth it. We were there one year and they had a B25 and B17 sitting on the tar-mac that you could walk through.

I brought my two sons and my father to the Naval Air Station in August. We were there for about 3 hours and had a fantastic time. The amount of airplanes and helicopters which had great historic value was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

So many interesting planes and other things. I really liked the information on women in World War II. There were short films on different subjects, many planes, and cars to sit in. There were also things for children. I enjoyed the 40's room of household items and other things from the 40's

I went here on a rainy day. I found this plg ace on bringfido.com. The we went the admission was half price because they had to move some of the planes out for a party they were having on Saturday. Lots of interesting things at the museum. My Beagle and I had a great visit.

Especially if you like planes and such, or memorabilia from the 1940's era, this is a nice place to go on a rainy day. It doesn't take up the whole day to see it, so you can do other things on the same day.

I visited Cape May this September and we had a few rainy days. I took my kids (4 year old daughter & 7 year old son) to the Aviation museum to get them out. WOW! The kids had such a great time that we went back to the gift shop, exchanging our day tickets and paying more for an annual... More

A must see in the Cape May area for pilots and plane buffs. Have some really great exhibits and some you can climb in. Stearman, Avenger, hueys, cobra, f14, f15, etc. Great to see them up close and personal. Kids love it too.
