Take a trip back in time to visit WWI and WWII aircraft. Most are fully operational and it was a real treat to visit and see these old war birds. They have fly ins in May. Would love to attend one of these. The roar and sound of the old war birds are beyond description!

If you have interest in the history, stories, and machines of WWI and WWII, I highly recommend visiting the Military Aviation Museum. My wife and I have went to the museum's WWI airshow for six years running now. The private museum has a large collection of flyable WWII aircraft.

We started with the tour of the WWI planes and the 3 hangars showing the WWII planes. Our guide and all the docents were very knowledgeable. These planes are from a private collection and their owner has opened them up to the public. Entrance fees are nominal and well worth it. We spent about 5.5 hours and it did not... More

While on a family vacation to VA Beach, we took a rainy day and went to the Aviation Museum. My husband and father in law are WWI & WWII history buffs. They enjoyed the museum very much. They have an extensive collection of biplanes, triplanes and WWII era aircraft. The tour guides were well versed in the subject and are... More

The Military Aviation Museum, in southern Virginia Beach, is one of the most unique museums of it's kind and home to some of the most unique and surviving one-of-a-kind aircraft in the world. Unlike many air museums, all the aircraft, from the collection of WW I fighters to the most modern are in flying condition. On many days, aircraft will... More

Fantastic aviation museum owned by one passionate aviation fan, Jerry Yeagan. Aircraft range from pre-WW1to the Vietnam era. In the spring he has a WW2 airshow and in the fall a WW1 airshow. He also has "Flying Proms" -, never been to one, but it sounds like a dance with period music (period according to which planes are flying) and... More

Love these beautiful planes and have been here often. The museum is very interesting and for anyone who loves aviation...this is a must see. There are often special events and you can see these magnificent planes in action. The staff there have always been very helpful.

This Museum is tucked away near Pungo. They have many generations of military aircraft. Sometimes there is access to the workshop where they are restoring old aircraft. The volunteers do a great job of showing people around the museum.

This is a very nice day trip. There is a lot of vintage aircraft and equipment to see, from world war 1 & world war 2. There is also art work on display, upstairs in the museum. I really enjoyed seeing all the history.
