This review was written by 7 year old Mark who visited with his family.

The best part of this museum is that there are thousands of little plane models to see. There is also a hot air balloon basket you can climb into. There is a video game flight simulator where you can see what it's like to steer a plane. I didn't do good with that but it was fun. Outside there are real life helicopters and ambulances. It's great for kids.

Aviation Hall of Fame is a small building packed with hundreds of items of interest and displays of aircraft & related vehicles. Also on the premises is the actual hall of fame with plaques depicting individuals related to flight from the 1800s to the early 2000s. Included are several early astronauts & NY area weather pilots.

Visited on Open Cockpit Day
Jul 2019 • Friends
A friend and I visited the Aviation Hall of Fame of NJ today. Although we both are long time NJ residents, this was our first visit and we'd come back.

There are a lot of interesting displays, honoring a number of NJ contributors to aviation. If you are keen on learning about the many pioneers, whether in flying, designing planes or various accessories, managing airports, etc., you could spend a lot of time reading the displays and examining the artifacts.

There are a few interactive displays which would interest kids. Also, the museum has a small helicopter inside. Outside, there are about 6 vintage planes and helicopters and a few ambulance trucks. As we explored the inside and exterior of the various aircraft, the volunteers provided a lot of information about the respective unit's operation. Their enthusiasm was very apparent.

I would definitely return to read more of the displays and revisit the planes on sight.

Very interesting little museum packed with New Jersey history
Jun 2018 • Solo
I have been in the Aviation Hall of Fame for functions before but never toured it before and I found it fascinating I was really impressed with the depth of the research of the museum and the displays that they had.

There are interesting exhibitions of the Hindenberg Disaster, Buzz Aldred's walk on the moon, information on the Kelly brothers who are still in space travel (all of these people are from New Jersey) and even the Byrd exhibition to the North and South Pole. There are many interesting displays to interact with and there is even a small plane for children to sit in on the second floor.

Loads of information on aviation at the beginning of it all based in New Jersey and many interesting exhibitions on women in aviation and their role in the wars.

The only problem with the museum is that it is locked in the 1970's with their displays and for all the interesting information, the displays could be a little more sophisticated in their technology.

Overall, it is a great museum to bring kids to for the afternoon. It is a great way to spend the afternoon.

If you are into aviation
Dec 2016 • Couples
There isn't much to see and do in the Teterboro, NJ but we spent a pleasant hour checking out a lot of items from the history of flight in the NJ area. Staff is very helpful and enthusiastic. There are about 8 different flight related vehicles in the yard outside the building including a chopper from the Korean War. You can climb into a few of them. Inside there is a welcoming video...many small artifacts and photos of legendary pilots from NJ , awards, factoids, and parts of engines, etc. Nice to see materials honoring NJ women in aviation. A few hands on displays to explain lift, drag, and so on. We enjoyed the hour. $6 for seniors and kids, $8 for adults.

7700 square feet of interior space on two floors on an acre of property including an outdoor display area. 8 aircraft and helicopters on display (including a 1950 airliner you can board), multiple hands-on, interactive electronic exhibits, over 400 models, an opening video about human flight in NJ in a 60 seat theater, literally thousands of other artifacts on exhibit....all this for $8 for adults and $6 for kids. Seems like a lot for the money to me.

My head in air and space
Jun 2016
If you are not that enthusiastic about aviation, the friendly staff here will help you get almost as interested in air and space as they have been. (Yes, I am an air and space fan.) Anyway, on three floors you could see many scale-model sized air and space craft, some full-sized exhibits, and videos as well as pictures, texts, and other items covering air and space with a emphases on NJ. Either an event in aviation or space exploration happened in NJ or the person who made it happen lived or was born in NJ. Outside, I saw a few airplanes, jeeps, a fire engine, a helicopter, and the nosecone of a jet. It costs a dollar or two more, but if you could time it to visit on "Open Cockpit Weekend," you can go inside some of these aircraft out doors, including that jet nosecone, and get an idea of how people traveled in the 1950s and '60s by air. While it not as big and flash as the air and space museum in Virginia, it will take a few hours to see everything.
