This was our third visit to the museum. There is always something new to see. Met the new director and toured with two docents. They now have two planes available for trips by visitors.

Great museum. Knowledgeable docents. Worth a visit. Great for kids and blue hairs alike. Small gift shop. Simulator. They have events where the old birds go for a flight. Cool place. I'm a local and take family friends when the weather's bad. I've been several times and enjoy it. I've also been to an after hours event there and it... More

If you like airplanes, especially vintage airplanes, you will love this museum. Lots of planes, lovingly taken care of, nicely displayed. Even if you're only mildly interested in old warplanes, like me, it is fun to see all the different kinds. You can see planes in real life that you may have only heard about or seen in a movie....

My husband and I enjoyed the afternoon here. They have people to show you around and they have great stories about the planes as well as a great love for them.

They have many of the famous planes from WWII and WWI. The star of the museum, in my opinion, is the P-51 Mustang and the F4U Corsair. Beautiful planes. I have seen the P-51 fly on numerous occasions and you can never forget the sound of that big V12 engine. It looks like most of the planes there are in... More

We recently visited the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia. The information we read about it said to allow 45 minutes for the visit. We were there over 3 hours. The most impressive feature about this museum, besides the vast array of planes, is the volunteers. They are the most enthusiastic group of people I have ever met. They jumped at... More

Great tour guides describing a wide variety of military aircraft from WW I to Korea. Facility and grounds were extremely clean and an elevator was available for second floor.

I have been here a few time over the years and enjoy it. I had some friends in, he is retired Air Force, so I took them here. There happened to be a car show on the day we were here. It was a Porsche show and my friend had worked for them in SC. It was just an added... More
