This place was one of our first stops on our Virginia Beach vacation. There was plenty to walk around and see for yourself, and we did do the guided tour as well. The docent's were knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Spent a couple of hours here. The collection of WWII Soviet aircraft is remarkable as well as the collection of WWII American planes. Considering that the majority of the aircraft are in flying condition, it is a great experience. While they ask you not to touch the planes, you get to walk up, get under, look in, and do what...

So worth the trip. Every member at the museum was excited and knowledgable. My dad served in WWII and I never had a chance to ask him about his service on his carrier. The staff brought his memory to life.

When most people come to Virginia Beach, they don't leave the touristy area of the boardwalk and Atlantic Avenue. However, there is much more to explore beyond the beach! One place, about 20 minute driving distance from the boardwalk, is the Military Aviation Museum. Here, visitors can view planes from both World War I & II. The planes are in... More

I have visited this museum three times and enjoyed it each time. The collection of aircraft is extensive and I love the ability to get close to the planes. It is a real credit to the City of Virginia Beach and I don't know why the tourism group doesn't promote it more. It is a must see when you are... More

We visited here during Christmas. We came to see Santa fly in on a bi-plane, but stayed for the amazing collection of planes.

From the condition of all the aircraft to the layout and the polite, informative & enthusiastic staff, the day I spent at the MMA gave me, by far, the highlight of my recent two week vacation through the Carolina's & Virginia. The 'wow' factor of enjoying and sharing the obvious TLC these aircraft have received exceeds the 5 star Tripadvisor... More

Great place to go if you have any interest in aviation or military history. They have a huge collection of aircraft, all in excellent condition, in a few really large hangers where they are all staged. The one downside to this is that we brought our two year old, who is fasciated with airplanes. He loved seeing everything but since... More

My hubby is an aviation and history enthusiast. The museum was the main focus of our trip to Virginia Beach with our 9 year old son. We arrived at the museum around 9:30, it opens at 9, and were the only people there for a short while. You can tour first leg of the museum - the Army and Navy... More
