I've been to most of the air museums in the country, and this rates right near the top. The depth of the collection is amazing. Good storyboards for each aircraft. Can see and touch. They even have a real aircraft carrier wooden flight deck, along...More

I have been to many military aviation museums around the world and this is clearly one of the best (I would put it on par with the Smithsonian). The wide variety of prop and jet aircraft from the various wars (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm,...More

The National Naval Aviation Museum is a treasure. We've visited a few times before but this time the Blue Angels were doing a practice routine so the place was packed. Parking was at a premium and there were wall-to-wall people enjoying the show and touring...More

Loved this museum. Got there too late to see the planes on the trolley, but museum and IMAX were awesome. The Apollo 11 exhibit was fantastic. Laid out well in terms of wars but confusing if you follow just the brochure. Make sure you have...More

While vacationing in Gulf Shores, we took a trip to the museum. We wanted to see the Blue Angels practice and visit the museum. I assume the traffic was so bad because everyone was going to see the Blue Angels. It took almost a full...More

Took my wife to the Naval Aviation Museum (NAM) to check out all the awesome planes, and I was not disappointed at all! Yes, you will need identification to get in the museum, because it’s on a military base, so why wouldn’t you? Yes, they...More

I've been there multiple times, but this time I noticed they added a new additional display hanger. The air museum obviously is navy in origin, but houses many dozens of aircraft, munitions, ship displays and much more. There is and big screen movie theater, cafeteria/eating...More
