The museum is worth it alone to see the reconstructing of a P-61C "Black Widow" which will be flyable. Come during the WWII days, held near June 6 to see re-enactors, fly-in aircraft, and displays, plus "recreations" of the 1940's.

Great place to visit any time of the year, but nothing beats their WWII weekend in June. It's like being at a WWII airfield. Mock combat, displays, and of course all the WWII planes. Felt like I was in The Memphis Belle movie. Well worth the price!

The guide Bill was a font of knowledge about the histories of the vintage planes that they acquire and restore to be used at air shows on occasion. Most of the planes were from WWII and one was a plane that was lost in a jungle somewhere and they rescued it and are in the process of restoring it! Thoroughly... More

We were looking for a place to go on a short day trip in PA. We aren't aircraft enthusiasts, but we have a 13 year old so this fit the bill. What a wonderful air museum! First off, this is the only aircraft museum I've been to where a lot of the planes are in flying condition and are flown.... More

Great place if you love flying and air planes. Always fun. I'm 77 years old and had my first sir plane ride there when I was a little boy, have loved flying ever since.

Our tour guide was excellent. It was only myself and my small family, but he took the time to show us everything he could and tell us all about backstories...paying careful attention to our young son and making sure he was "entertained". The planes are really cool. Some of them are very old, but he boasted that most of them... More

We're WWII reenactors and "WWII Weekend" gets better every year. I grew up during WWII and the entire setting brings back memories.

Awesome event with something for everyone! Airplanes, re-enactors, swing dancing and support from the home front effort. Meet WWII vets and hear their stories!

The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum has a WWII weekend each year in June around the anniversary of D-Day. It's a three days of performers, reenactments, convoys and war birds flying. This was my second year and I'm glad to have gone on two separate days. For photographers it's not as crowded on Fridays so it's a good day to walk up... More

I'm a longtime member of the Mid Atlantic Air Museum and finally visited the WWII weekend this year. Excellent experience. While my main reason for joining MAAM is a passion for all things aviation, I was so impressed by the event and had no idea it was so well done. Many dedicated WWII reenactments, including military installations and a glimpse... More
