We were here in 2005 and decided to visit again last week while in the area. For 5 days in the gulf, our 3 hour visit here was the absolute highlight of the trip!! Be sure to get the free tickets for the trolley that takes you out to the tarmac to see many planes they have on display there.... More

Easy place to get to, see and enjoy. So much history in naval history, simulators, food, beer and more static displays of jets, helicopters and prop-planes. Jet movies, simulators right next to the hangars that house the Blue Angels!!! For military easy to get to, for civilians, bring iCards and registration in order to get on base. Go to the... More

You will wonder how could they get so many different types of airplanes in this museum. When we have family and friend visit, this is a place we take them to visit. You learn a lot about planes and you get to see how planes have evolved over time. A tribute to Bob Hope. A theater that shows how they... More

Awesome, awesome, awesome! This museum is simply amazing. We got there when they first opened before it got really crowded and we looked and looked. My 2 teenage sons said they'd like to go back again because they were sure they had missed some stuff. We spent probably 4 1/2 hours walking, looking, reading, and visiting with the Navy personnel.... More

Lots of planes & history ! Explanations were nice . Helpers were so nice & so helpful . We did the movie about flight . Interesting but very out dated . Was bummed that the hangar with Presidential helicopter was closed . Would have been great if there was more info about the Blue Angels

Great air show, informative, plan to spend at 4-5 hours looking at all the airplanes,simulators and just in ahh. Got to see the pilots up close and really comprehend the training and strength it takes to pilot one of these aircrafts.
