If you're not an aviation enthusiast, you might not find it all that great but for me it was well worth stopping to see the SR71. Not sure how... More

A fantastic display of aircraft from several generations. Docents offer stories of legendary aircraft and the variety of aircraft is impressive. Don't rush your visit.

This museum has some of the most interesting and rare planes. They also have a great flight simulator. Volunteers man the museum and are very knowledgeable about the aircraft. Be sure to ask about their flight credentials. Very interesting people

I recently stopped by the Virginia Aviation Museum on my day off, as I had never visited before, and was pleasantly surprised by the museum. It's a small museum that is well-maintained, and the airplanes on display were all beautiful. The volunteers were very friendly, and one of the volunteers led me around to different planes, describing the engines and... More

Very cool place for kids - lots of planes to see, including a SR-71. The museum has a nice little gift shop as well.

A little museum near the Richmond Airport. Never crowded and interesting. Kids get to sit in planes and there are replicas and originals of the type of aircraft used in the early days of aviation in Virginia. If you are an enthusiast, you will love it. It only takes an hour or two to see everything and the docents there... More

A clean, well-maintained museum right beside the Richmond Airport. Housed in a large climate-controlled hanger, this museum is home to many civil aviation aircraft, some of which are the sole survivors of their type. Warbirds range from a S.P.A.D. to the impressive Cold War-era SR71 Blackbird parked out front. Many well-designed scale model aircraft displays tell the story of WWII... More

The Virginia Aviation Museum, a division of the Science Museum of Virginia, is located adjacent to the Richmond International Airport. I have driven by the museum on a number of occasions going to and from the airport. I finally decided to take some time to stop by and visit. It was well worth my time. The museum is open every...

Located at the Richmond Airport, the museum is worth your time and effort to see. An SR-71 graces the front lawn and is always an amazing display to view.
