Great museum full of Navy airplanes from WWI to present day. There's lots of interactive exhibits for kids that help them understand the Navy Aviation history. Home of the Blue Angels, several in the museum. I was totally amazed by some of the planes, especially the boat planes. Highly recommend for anyone interested in planes or the Nsvy.

Took the family here while on vacation. There's plenty for adults and children alike. If you're hungry, there's a cafe inside the main building but be warned it closes earlier than the museum itself. You have to have picture ID to get in (onto the base and into the museum) and are also subject to bag searches. Guided tours and... More

Definitely a go-to if you're in the area. Lots of planes from early aviation, to modern times. Even a presidential helicopter. There's an IMAX theatre, and flight simulators. Lots of engines around as well as cut-aways. Some of which will turn with a button to show how they work. Also lots of cut out cockpits for you to sit in.... More

So many airplanes, jets, etc! Visual overload! I would tell anyone if you think this is a 1 hour walk through, think again! You need at least 3 to 4 hours to soak it all in! was very pleased wish I could have stayed longer!

This museum is HUGE. We spent two afternoons there and I still didn't see it all. I'm not terribly interested in airplanes, but this place is really impressive and the historical significance was really interesting to read about at each exhibit. There are also a lot of interactive things for kids (and adults!). Note - it is on the base,... More

This place will leave a smile on your face. From the windows to the walls it is exceptional. Planes are everywhere from the ceiling to the floor. It's jaw dropping. Very nice play area, very clean everywhere and friendly people. I hope it continues to stay this way. If in the area please do yourself a favor and go in.

This museum is absolutely fantastic. The shear size and scope of this museum's collection of naval artifacts is astounding. There are planes from the beginning of naval aviation history through all of our country's modern conflicts. There's even a display section specific to the USCG.
