This is an amazing museum filled with history. It's tucked away in the countryside just south of VA Beach, easily driven to from the oceanfront. Lots of WWII planes, both real and reproductions. Many Army planes and Navy planes. Lots of other things in the main museum area too. What sets this apart is the staff. Most are volunteers who... More

Took my 13 year old grandson and we spent 2 1/2 hours at this amazing place - in the middle of nowhere. Had the opportunity to watch a "Mosquito" take off, headed for an air show in Wisconsin. Unbelievable collection of planes not only from the U.S., but impressive collection of German and Russian planes. The walk out to the... More

First off, this can be a very enjoyable experience, and at $12 per person, relatively cheap compared to other forms of entertainment in the resort area. My wife and I took our 3 year old to see the museum today. My wife and I visited the museum about 5 years ago and decided this year, my son should enjoy it.... More

WOW, this attraction really holds up to its #1 rated rating, great displays that you are right up close too also you might get lucky enough to see some takeoffs and landings from the state department planes practicing

Hard to believe that this museum is privately owned! Over 90% of these planes still fly and I haven't seen a collection this impressive since I went to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England! Very impressive and worth a visit if you love war birds from WWI and WWII!

This is my favorite place to visit in Virginia Beach!! It is not hard to find and only 15 minutes from the main resort area. The entire collection is privately owned by one man who maintains them all in flying condition! He also has the "fighter factory" on premises where he re-builds vintage propeller driven fighter aircraft to flying condition.... More

We drove down here- about 30 minutes from the main tourist areas- towards the end of our beach vacation when we were looking for something else to do. It's an impressive facility made even more special by the unique aircraft that are here. I've been to both the Smithsonian Air and Space and the U.S. Air Force Museum and saw... More

Had a great time seeing some vintage aviation history. Easy to get to, friendly staff. Will stop again next time we are down there!

This is a must see for anyone even vaguely interested in aviation. If that is not your "thing" always check out the many other events they offer. It is about a 20 minute drive from Sandbridge Beach and about 35 from the Va. Beach oceanfront. Either way the ride through the countryside will lead you on many detours that you... More

Excellent museum if you are into airplanes. And who isn't? Anyways, great collection of WW1 and WW2 aircraft displayed where you can walk right up to them and read the serial numbers off of the engines. The museum volunteers are simply excellent. Friendly and informative. Well worth a visit if you are into warbirds!
