We never miss a trip to the National Naval Aviation Museum when we are on vacation in nearby Orange Beach. There is SO much to see that it's hard to take it all in. My 5 year old grandson was in absolute heaven with all the airplanes, helicopters, and of course - the Blue Angel jets hanging from the ceiling!!... More

This museum is free admission, always fine tuning and adding new exhibits, amazing things to see. Plenty of parking. Plenty of things for children to touch and look at. The cafe is reasonably priced and the food is good.

Amazing experience. Fun for the whole family. We were there for over 4 hours and still didn't see everything. Great Imax theater also. And best of all, it's free. Don't miss this opportunity if your in the area.

I have been here many times and simply put, it is an amazing museum. It's awesome to have such a top notch destination in my area, especially considering it is free to visit whenever I would like to go. This museum is one of, if not the best, air museums in the world. A wonderful day consists of watching the... More

This is an amazing museum. It rivals the Air and Space Museum in DC. It has 87 aircraft, an IMax theatre, 2 simulators and a simulation of an aircraft carrier deck. Bring an ID as they check them at the entrance to the Naval Base (which you must enter to get to the museum).
