They have everything from model tanks to model space vehicles. Kids loved it, but I wish they could still climb onto and into the airplanes like I was able to do as a kid.

Although located in an out of the way swampy little park, this display of aerospace ingenuity is truly amazing. In today's dollars there is possibly billions of dollars of hardware sitting here with some of it sadly neglected by evidence of the corroded mounting pedestals and missing signage. Don't let this deter you however, this is still something for all... More

I was in the area for a baseball camp for my son - but I ventured out while the was working out. I glad I did! I came across the Air Park/Museum by accident. I'm a huge avaition museum fan so this was a perfect find. After talking with the only employee on site for almost an hour I got... More

It looks small from the road but this free museum contains hundreds of model air planes, helicopters, and rockets. There are about 20 rockets and a half dozen airplanes outside. My two year old nephew loved it. My teenage nephews liked it too. There is a slide, swings, and a picnic table in a shaded spot. Plan on spending about... More

First of all, the woman at the front desk was on the phone during our entire visit. Two of us tried to get information from her at two different times; she appeared to be annoyed that we interrupted her phone conversation. That doesn't set a good tone for the visit. The small models inside the "museum" could be interesting, but... More

I have passed this attraction everyday for the 10 years that I have lived in Hampton. I finally stopped one day and was pleasantly surprised. Seeing the planes and other aircrafts up close was impressive. It gives the locals a lot of pride knowing how big a part Hampton played in the air throughout the years. What I didn't realize...

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
