The collection is impressive, including aircraft from the 1930s through modern carrier-based fighters. There's even a MIG-15. Visitors are encouraged to touch and even sit in some of the exhibits. The chairman and founder, Dr. Salvatore is not only a charming and gracious host, he obviously enjoys interacting with visitors, and sharing his enthusiasm for aviation. Anyone in the southern...

The history of the WWII hangar and of the collection of planes and helicopters fill the museum. I love the real, imperfect state of the exhibits, where you can touch the planes and sit in the helicopters. I have visited many times over the years and always find something new. My favorite is the Korean War era Russian MIG.

Took my family there today from age 8 to 78. We had an awesome time. Place was fascinating !!! A must see for the aviation enthusiast. The owner makes you feel like your family.

Visiting my sister in Clermont NJ we discussed what we could do for a day trip. We decided to go to the museum. My first thought was oh how boring, but being with my two sisters and brother in law was our first priority. You enter thru the gift shop, the fee for the museum is $10, we got a... More

Well done and educational. Worth every penny of admission. The grandkids had a ball. Especially on those planes that they can sit in.

Love how everything was open and our kids (6 & 9) could walk freely and check out all the cool planes! They were amazed at the size of them and loved climbing in and out of them. Staff was super friendly, will definitely visit again!

Took my 3 year old there and we had a blast. He loved climbing all over the planes, cars, and helicopters. As he gets older it would be a great place to take him to learn. Tons of signs explaining all the rich history of the displays and the staff was great in helping us if we needed it. Definitely... More
