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

Went with my adult son and 5 yr old grandson. There was plenty to keep all interested for hours. Only disappointment was a lot of the simulators were oos.

Was a little reluctant to go, but my husband wanted to see the museum. Glad I went! Was very interesting. All the employees are very nice and informative, they seem to really enjoy their job!

I totally enjoyed a recent visit to the NASW Aviation Museum near Cape May and Wildwood, NJ. I found the restored aircraft fascinating, even though I am more interested in history than aviation. It seems like a great place to visit, particularly on a rainy day at the Jersey Shore. Perfect for families with young children!

Had to pull the family out of here to get to the beach. 3 small and one large Flight simulators, a handful of science "brain" exhibits like the ones in the Franklin Institute in Phila. A fighter jet, jeep, helicopters,Coast Guard helicopter,... you can sit in. Numerous jet engine and plane parts you can see up close. Lots of vintage... More

An excellent display of aviation history with a good sampling of aircraft from pre-WWII to the space age!

This place is very hands on. You are able to climb into planes, Jeeps and helicopters. It is still a working airport. Very nice rainy day trip. Worth the $10 admission.

Three friends and I visited the museum and all were impressed. The curators showed their love and dedication to the improvements under way and their love for the time period the museum was in its heyday--the 1940's. Lots of memorbilia to include vintage WW II aircraft, helicopters, vehicles, posters, music, etc. A trip well worth the visit to anyone who... More

We love this place. If you have any aviation enthusiasts in your family (especially kids) they will love this place. Very hands on friendly and plenty of experiments and simulations for the kids to try. Plenty of civil and military aircraft!!! A MUST GO!!! :)
