Just enjoy this place of history and human endeavour.

Well worth the drive to fine this place. It has the history of American Naval Aviation well laid out that brought history to life.

This was a really cool museum. So many planes to look at and it was interactive as well. I think all ages can enjoy this museum. We didn't see any of the films and we were there for at least two hours, so plan sometime. They did have tours, but we opted to just walk around ourselves. The volunteers were... More

I do love aeroplanes so this was an obvious place to visit for a morning. That was the only mistake - you need a lot more than a morning to do this justice. First, it is free although a donation of $5 is recommended. If I had payed $20 each for admission, it would have been excellent value! We joined... More

Loved this place! Such an extensive and organized museum including all aspects of naval history. Take a guided tour or just wander. See a featured movie. Stop by the gift shop. Grab lunch. There is something for all ages. Individual unique displays depicting each war since WW1. Lots of planes, some are the only left of their type, even pulled... More

We went there to see everything, but hangar 1 was closed. We checked online and there was no information about the closure, the hangar that was open was pretty cool but I was interested in hangar 1. there is a nice lighthouse on the way in also or on the way out. We will have to go back again.

This place is great.! We stopped by just to look- I am glad we took the time, the staff was very friendly. You can see air planes take off- fun for the kiddies.

This is a first class place. no admission fee, and something there for everyone. We have been here before but since then, they have added to the place. It truly is amazing and you certainly don't have to be military to enjoy it. Don't miss it because it will be one of the highlights of your trip to that area.

Unfortunately we had limited time before catching a flight. It could easily take several hours to fully appreciate all of the exhibits. The place is crammed full of aircraft, large and small, from every era. And the kids will absolutely love it. You can actually climb into several cockpits and there's a flight simulator that is really exciting...even to two... More
