If you are interested in aviation, this is a great place to visit. It is kid-friendly, and the staff is quite knowledgable. Across the parking lot, The little restaurant, "The Flight Deck", offers an affordable breakfast or lunch until 2pm. There is also a Vietnam War museum within walking distance. It's a great attraction, and wonderful alternative to the beach... More

This museum is a hidden gem. Fun way to spend the day off the beach and learn some local and US history is a user friendly environment.

We had a great time visiting. The staff were all so friendly and informative. Our 5 year old couldn't contain his excitement, he loved climbing in and out of the planes. Our 3 year old was a little intimidated by the size but did warm up as time passed. My husband and I also really enjoyed ourselves. We probably spent... More

Lots of items of interest for all the family. Had visitors from France and Mexico (in their 20's) and was a bit unsure how interested they would be but rest assured they found it very interesting indeed...they enjoyed all the interactive things. The new exhibition of the small boats involved in 9/11 is very well done and I like all... More

It is an important story that the site is telling but the organization is not that great and several multimedia displays were not functional. It is worth supporting but they would benefit from a good curator who could reorganize the museum to make it easier to navigate. We were also fortunate to get a 2 for 1--we paid admission here...

Five stars from me. It may not have the biggest or most current collection but displays are very accessible; sitting in cockpits, touching everything. This place is lots of fun, especially if you have kids or are a kid at heart. Everyone there is very nice, very helpful.

A hidden gem. Lots of planes, helicopters, jeeps, radio, displays that are all nicely laid out. You can actually sit inside many of them. Lots of info on WWII and the Life magazine wall is really cool.

We took my grandpa to this on one visit to Cape May. The lady working got so excited when she found out that he was a vet and wanted him to sign a wall that veterans signed. Such a sweet lady, even gave us a little bit of a tour to show us things we might find interesting.

There were lots of planes and helicopters to climb into and a lot of photos and descriptions to see and read. We went because it was a rainy day and I am so glad that it rained. We will go back again.
