Great museum for kids and adults. My wife and I as well as Grandparents and a 5yo and 8 yo all had a great time. Many hands on activities for all ages. All the planes were well displayed and cool to see. Really enjoyed some of the planes like the WWII bomber that you could enter and have a simulated... More

Most of the interactive displays were either shut down or not operating correctly. Very disappointed as I am a commercial pilot and love aviation. However if admission was about 5 dollars I would have felt so raped at the door.

I like that they accept reciprocation, but I'm glad I didn't pay. It's small and not a lot for little hands to do.

Great for all ages. Movies and exhibits of great interest. Varied and lots of hands on things for kids. Small cafe. Nice gift shop. Really interesting displays. Bounce house, imax, flight simulator cost extra.

While this museum is a little pricey, there is a lot of fun hands on activities and information provided. I have been quite a few times and learn something new every time! There are three floors of space and airplane information. There is even a real airplane guests are allowed to climb into and see all the controls. The fourth... More

Family went to the Virginia Air & Space Center as a part of our reunion in July! There was a TON to see. We were only there for 3 hours and I wish we had been able to stay longer. There were great interactive activities for all ages of children and adults. Would highly recommend visiting!

We came here as part of a Scout trip and it was fantastic. They have a decent number of exhibits. Some of the exhibits are suspended very high off the ceiling. The concession stand is tiny but sufficient. The staff is clearly an asset as they are informed, friendly and available. It's located just a few miles from Ft. Monroe... More

I thought the museum was very well done with a proper balance of interesting things for kids to do and see while not making to "too kiddy" that would bore any adults. The guides were very friendly and informative and weren't put of by having to answer "kid questions." would recommend
