I am a docent at the museum as well as a retired Naval Aviator. Don't miss this one of a kind museum. Most of us at the museum are volunteers and are extremely proud to show you some great flying machines plus give you a little history of early aircraft and their missions.

This is an amazing collection of vintage aircraft that actually fly. Carefully restored and displayed in multiple hangers. If the planes weren't enough the staff of volunteer guides are a wealth of information. Well worth a trip to Pungo!

There is a hanger with WW1 planes, hanger with WW2 planes, hanger with Navy planes, hanger with Army planes, building were planes are being restored, repaired and made. Plus a museum. They offer guided tours that are informative and entertaining.

Even if it's not a rainy day! One of the best museums I've ever visited, WWI and WWII aircraft, land and, in one case, a land-sea vehicle. Other equipment as well. 95% of them in working condition. Allow about 3 + hours for your visit, and wear comfortable shoes. The docents here are the best I've encountered anywhere, and I've... More

Such an incredible collection of history-learn at your own pace-great for families--the Santa fly in is a wonderful way to start the holiday-and the special shows are beautiful

About 30mins drive from Virginia Beach. There are lots of old fighter aircraft to see. Some models were used in WW1 and WW2. A ride to some of the aircraft is also available @ 149$ for 15mins...

Interesting museum. Very friendly staff. Many volunteers who know a lot about planes. Mostly vintage World War 2 planes. Would allot about two hours.

Great place to see and learn about historic airplanes up close! We did the tour, which is included in the admission price, and enjoyed the knowledgeable volunteer that led us through the hangers. Nice way to spend 2 - 3 hours in an afternoon. Didn’t get to see them fly but I know that they do have shows there on... More

Our family had a great tme at the museum. It was one of the few things on our trip that both our younger children and our teens enjoyed! The docents are very knowledgeable and friendly. They had a great variety of aircraft and some interesting exhibits. I'd recommend it for anyone that likes old warplanes.

Great, just Great. spent about 3 hrs. viewing the many planes. Planes from as early as WW I. and earlier. The museum and planes are well maintained. The museum is a 1st class operation. My wife was able to look into the type of plane her dad jumped out of on D-Day. He was in the 82nd A. B. Div.
