I made a special detour on my way from my Portsmouth Hotel to Norfolk International Airport in order to visit MAM in July 2014.

On the day of my visit... More

They have lots of vintage and colorful planes that the kids loved. We had a 2 year old and two teenage boys in our party. They had a good time. This was well worth the money. They want to come back for fly ins.

Amazing collection of WWI and WWII replicas and originals. The docents are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. It's off the beaten path from VB, but absolutely worth the visit!

Loved this museum in that it took you to the very times of the eras of these planes. They had quite a collection of planes from World Wars to early flying machines. Various vehicles and memorabilia too. Well worth the trip to Pungo. They also have rides on certain days and times

Needs more maintenance. The F22 exhibit is very disappointing. That was the highlight that made us go there, but....it was just a fake shell.

Living in the area we were driving around one day and passed a display of dinosaurs. Interested, we turned around and found out that it was an Aviation Museum. Our two year old loves planes so we decided to take a look. There is a nice little kid area with petal powered airplanes for kids to ride. There is also... More

Well done and friendly personal. My husband was a USN pilot and we both enjoyed the history and displays. We will bring back our family and friends the next time we visit Virginia Beach.

If you like history about WWI and WWII. It's a place to visit and take the tour. You see the planes that were used in both wars and the tour guide, George, was great to listen to and he knows a lot about the planes that are in the museum.
