Having been at its current location since 1987, the Virginia Aviation Museum closed its doors there on July 1, 2016. They hope to reopen, but, at this time, a new location has not yet been determined. On display at the Museum are a large number of aircraft built in the 1910s and the 1920s. The signage and actual aircraft displays... More

went to the museum this past Saturday. It closes this week. Lots of old aircraft and very interesting. It's hard to go up against the Smithsonian in NOVA. But it was good for local kids to see the aircraft

Went for FREE since the museum will close June 30, 2016. Parking was good and not crowded. Weather was nice.

Kids and adults interested in aviation will enjoy this little museum. It's very easily accessed when you turn into the Richmond Airport. There is a small entrance fee, if I recall correctly was about $5 to $6 per person., but well worth it and a little gift shop. There are a couple hands on displays and even one kids can... More

My three year old son and I had a "boys day" and visited this museum. The computer was down when we arrived and I ultimately did not have to pay for admission. However, the admission price is worth it. They had two jets outside, which were both pretty cool. They had largely a selection of older planes inside. They do... More

Searching for things to do on a Saturday in Richmond and came across this on TA. I'm always up for airplanes. Located right next to the airport you can't miss the fighter jet in the front yard. For a very reasonable entry fee you get to see many important planes in history. Conversing with a guide I learned that many... More

I fly in and out of Richmond a lot, and noticed a month or so ago that the display of the plane Blackbird was no longer out front. Having never gone inside the museum itself, I allowed extra time ever and paid my admission to see a great display. I learned Blackbird is being redeployed to the Richmond Science Museum,... More

Great display of important historic aircraft from per WWII to the present. Not a huge museum, but worth a visit - especially when flying in or out of RIC. Gift shop is great.

Had some time to kill before a meeting and noted the Museum across the street. Was easy to get to and cost for a senior was $5.50. I milled around for a coupe of hours looking over many aircraft. They start you off with a guide to tell you about what is in the museum and then you are on... More
