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.

Really neat and compact museum on the approach road to Richmond International Airport. The biggest attraction is the SR-71 Blackbird located at the front of the museum. There is a modest charge for admission. Lots of docents are available so you can almost have a personal tour guide if you desire. It is worth the stop.

I took my boys here this past Sunday and we had a blast! The young lady and older gentleman working up front at the entrance were so kind and polite. It was nice being able to share this experience with my children. All of the displays were very informative and made you feel like you traveled back in time to... More

The main attraction for me coming was of course the sr-71. I have never seen one up close. It was certainly wonderful to see up in person. Even more respect for the plane, especially for the area it was built in. The rest of the museum was also nice to explore. Many things to check out and activities for kids... More

Handily located near Richmond Airport RIC the aviation museum is a wonderful spot to pass away db hour or more while waiting for a delayed arrival. The highlight has to be the once super secret Blackburd SR-71 and this model broke the Atlantic speed record east to west. The are very few of these skunk works amazing aircraft around so... More
