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

Being an aviation - especially military - enthusiast, this is one of my all-time favorite museums. We go every chance we get and have been fortunate to see some of the airplanes flying. Definitely well worth it for the experience of a lifetime!

If you have any interest in airplanes, the history of aviation, WWII or just want to spend a few hours doing something a little different, its worth taking the short drive down to Pungo to visit this 'museum'. The guides are all extremely well informed, pleasant and able to entertain. You will see a good variety of planes and other... More

Imagine museum of WWII planes that really fly. That's what this is. After going here we went to the Smithsonian and my 10-year-old said, "what's so special about this place, they don't fly." Unbelievable collection of flying WWII aircraft. A must see for any WWII/Aviation enthusiast and boys of all ages. Fee is very reasonable. Make sure to check the... More

Enjoyed two and half hours at Virginia Beach Military Air Museum on July 5. Great range of aircraft, beautifully presented, easy to look at and get close to, with knowledgeable volunteers dying to be asked questions about the planes. Really interesting for aircraft buffs. And the place is so clean you could eat your dinner off the floor!!
