Unique experience

I have only been here a few times during the annual Mid Atlantic Air Festival. If you are interested in old airplanes you will be in heaven here.

We went up here a few weeks ago because my son (6 1/2) has recently shown an interest in aviation. What a treat to have it so close. CAVEAT: call ahead to make sure that their B-25 is there when you visit. Unfortunately, it was NOT when we visited as it was at an air show, but that was my... More

Really well done,a decent selection of vintage aircraft in the hanger and on 5he tarmac.The guide was pleasant and imformative.Also a huge collection of scale models,and memorabilia.Real close up acess to planes.Well stocked gift shop is a must do.Only disappointment was that the stars of the museum,the restored Avenger and the B-25 were away at an airshow.

Very interesting Museum with many WII aircrafts and also some interesting prototypes. The even better aspect is that the visit is done with the help of a wonderful guide, with plenty of history, anecdotes, explanations ... and patience ! You can really see the planes from very close, there is no fence anywhere. Thank you for this great moment of... More

I am a huge WWII airplane buff and this show didn't disappoint. Great roster of WWII airplanes, including the only fly-worthy B-29, and many others. There are also great static displays, plenty of vendors when you get hungry, and the nearby museum if everything outside isn't enough for you. It's a great air show and if you love fly-worthy, WWII... More

The museum is an eclectic mix of aircraft from different eras. The B25 on display was very impressive. The tour guide provided many interesting facts that are not generally known. The annual air show is something that will be on our list of things to do.

I went to the 25th Anniversary air show with my fiance. He is a former pilot and he helps to restore old planes; working for the MA Museum in the past. I didn't know what to expect - I'd never been to an air show. I was very impressed by the historic set up of the tents and people dressed... More

I was lucky enough to be staying in the area when the air show was taking place. What a collection of planes and memorabilia! The sky was alive with formations...!!

On the plus side, lots of re-enactors, vehicles, displays. Ground skirmish/French village. Seeing the old warbirds in the airshow was great. Seeing my faves like P51s, B17, and B29 roar past was a thrill. Admission $27 but for full day and there is lots to see. Listen to the tips on the maam.org site - it does get hot, no... More

This was my reason for the trip. They have one of the best WW2 air shows around. The 1940's role players and the singers like The Manhattan Dolls, Abbott and Costello and Frank sings Frank are worth the trip alone. This is my third year and I'll be back.
