The planes were really cool even if they are a bit neglected. Being able to walk right up, and even under, some of them was a lot of fun. Sure it is small and a bit run down, but it is free.

On our trip to Hampton we stopped here before heading back home and we were excited to see these amazing displays both on the inside and outside and it's all free! Which makes it even more worth visiting. We took lots of pictures and the receptionist at the front desk was also very nice and welcolming!

My parents brought me here as a kid. I enjoyed it. My sisters have brought their kids now and it was a lot of fun for them to touch and climb on the displays. It's a good visit for a family with young kids. Worth checking out.

Make sure to find and enjoy this free attraction. Many different aircraft in this park. Not too hard to find. Great photo ops!

It a good place to let kids burn off some energy for a bit & get up and close to approx 20-25 different airplanes and shuttles.They do have them fenced off so you can not touch.

This was a nice stop on the way to somewhere else. It had a handful of jets, missiles, and a mercury test capsule. Most items are in good condition. The signage is terrible though. There is also a visitor center on site, but they were closed when I went. The park itself has a small children's play area and a... More

This is a free self guided tour. There is a small indoor museum that has models and other displays. Worth the trip.

This is a free, self-guided tour where you can see old jets, missiles, rockets, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the vintage aircraft. It's open year round seven days a week.
