Great Imax theater shows. Interactive displays, history displays, models of aircraft, and space ships. Well worth the visit when traveling to Hampton, VA.

A unique opportunity to see NASA exhibits, including the actual Apollo capsule that orbited the Moon. Great for kids. The volunteers are very well informed and eager to talk to visitors. The IMAX "Airplanes" film is an absolute must-see !

We were blessed to enjoy seeing this museum in a closed event with the SATA organization on evening during their conference week. My children (12, 15), enjoyed the commercial aircraft and being able to go into the cockpit. Some of the displays were not functioning, but overall, it was an enjoyable museum. It has a gift shop with a fun... More

The reason I didn't give it a 5 rating was a few of the stations weren't working. But it's still a very good aviation museum and worth the visit. The... More

Enjoyed see all the experimental airplanes from NASA Langley over the course of time. IMAX theater was pretty spacious as we watched Exploring Space in 3D. It's not a large museum compared to other Air & Space museums but had some really unique and educational displays. Really liked the virtual X-ray display that show the inside of an aircraft carrier... More

We came here during our vacation to the Williamsburg area. The volunteers and employees were very helpful (really liked the two people who were working in the little cafe.) The exhibits were fun and informative. (Unfortunatley they were not all working.) The Apollo 12 capsule was well worth a trip- and we enjoyed the IMAX movie. While we were there... More

Great exhibits of space exploration and planes/helicopters. Spacious and a lot to see. Children and adults will alike will enjoy, great way to escape the sun or dodge the rain while visiting the Hampton Roads area.
