Me and my husband were in town for the weekend and we went here. It was amazing. Admission and parking is free which is unusual but awesome. We had a blast and we will be bringing our kids later in the year. I cannot wait to see the excitement and joy on my kids faces when they see all the... More

Very educational for both Naval enthusiasts and all military branches. Arrived not too long after they opened on a Saturday morning and crowds were very low, noticed that it picked up after 11am. Allow for at least 1hr. Recommend to do the tour of the air field. the air field tour lasts for 45min and your on a trolley the... More

I loved the displays. Not only informational, but almost hands on. I don't think you can get closer to an exhibit then you can here.

This is a great aviation museum second only to the Smithsonian Aviation Museum. This is the best Naval aviation museum and the Blue Angels jets are the premium of it and you can see them when in town.

It was a windy day at the beach, so we thought we'd try to visit this museum. What a great surprise. Even if you are not an airplane buff, this museum had many interesting older planes, great history documents, a good mix of movie clips and if inclined, guided tours. Definitely take the trolley tour of the outside planes. The... More

Make sure to have plenty of time when here. We walked a long time looking at everything. So informative and everyone on base was so nice and friendly. I was crazy being stopped and questioned before going on base but it was awesome. Can't wait to visit again this year.

We started our visit to the museum around 12:30pm and did not get to finish. We will have to go back. We read every description and play in all the planes that you can sit in. This place has the history of planes from the beginning to present. Plus a space section and many little extras. The kids we saw... More

We have been to the National Naval Aviation Museum twice now, and I think if we go several more times we'll still see something different. I retired from the Navy and spent a lot of time controlling aircraft, so for me it especially interesting. But for anyone, past Navy or not, this is an amazing museum. The curators have taken...

First of all, the experience is free! It is jam packed with information about WWI, WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. We were there about 3 hours and didn't see everything. I want to go back. There are airplanes, choppers, the space shuttle beautifully restored, on the floor of the exhibit and hanging above you. We took the... More
