A Hidden Gem of Virginia Beach

Try it, you'll like it, especially if you are a fan of WWI and WWII airplanes. Wonderful place to visit and to take visiting friends.

If you are curious about a little WWI and WWII history regarding planes, etc from the Allied side as well the German; this place is sure to amaze you with its vast collection! All planes are from a private collection, some can still be flown. There is even a hanger brought from Germany (WWII) and reassembled here in Virginia Beach.... More

Nice air museum, friendly staff and reasonable price. $12 for adults. They have 2 additional buildings that they offer guided tours through for free. They also have many plans for expanding there buildings and displayed. Definite must see for the plane enthusiast!

Great tour. Very interesting facts about the different planes and cars. A little disappointed to learn that the majority of the planes are replicas but they were still interesting to observe. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly.

The cost of admission seems a little high but when you consider the amount of work and effort that keeps these old birds flying you won't regret paying the entrance. Beautifully preserved and renovated aircraft. Lots of flying and a pretty good museum display.

Visited on 12-29-14. Enjoyed it a lot. Has a number of planes from WWI to Korean War era. Cool thing about a number of these planes is that actually are flyable. If you go, I would recommended staying for the tours of the WWI Hanger, Maintenance Hanger, and German WWII Hanger. Only disappointment was that the Me 262 Jet Fighter... More

This is a 2nd time back and it was as good as before. This time, however, we took the tour. I did not even know they did this and just got lucky as it seems to be the only way you can visit the WWI hanger or the other hangers behind the main one. The main building is largely aircraft... More

Nice time, not too crowed, full of events and actors in period clothing and a bandstand with period music.
