Several vintage aircraft and experimental space launch vehicles from the 1950s and 1960s are displayed out of doors. The park includes a children's playground.

The staff was intelligent, informative, and interactive. I couldn't tell who enjoyed this more my son or husband. There are old planes and items to explore and take advantage of the people who work there. It's also a living museum told by people who have been there.

I do love aeroplanes, so I am biased. However, despite the exhibits being outside mostly and some looking quite tired, the enthusiasm and friendly service of Dave the Docent made the visit special. The City had allowed the attraction to become abandoned a few years earlier; however, an ongoing restoration is in progress and the exhibits, some of which are... More

Stopped when passing by. Stayed about 30 min. Kids left with free themed coloring pages. Staff was friendly. Inside was sparse, but well kept. Exhibits outside were plain but enjoyable. Nice playground.

Cute park for kids and for those interested in air and space. We have been here a few times for a semi quiet weekend at the park with the little ones. Highway, Mercury Blvd is right there so you have to keep a close eye on kids and there is that noise too.

after visiting the air and space center this was a bit of a let down. however keeping in mind that this place is much older then the center helped the kids to understand the reasoning behind the park.

This facility on mercury blvd is a display of aicraft ,missles, and lauch vehicles. The area floods frequently and the indoor historical exhibit has been transferred to the air and space center. Unless you want to look, take pictures of older flight vehicles it's a waste of time.

The Air Power Park is a free park right along the highway in Hampton. They have a number of airplanes, rockets, etc. that you can walk around and look at. Inside are lots of model airplanes, spaceships, etc. It's not huge, but my preschool aged boys really enjoyed it. It took us about 30 minutes, but if you have older... More

Some reviewers have stated the museum is closed, The museum is open till 4:30. No a/c in the museum, just a large number of glass cases containing well built models of ba/c, armored vehicles & ships. I talked to Ken for about an hour before checking the inside. Outside are rockets (4), missiles (4), & aircraft (9). Each exhibit has... More
