For a somewhat out of the way locale, this museum is quite spacious and packed full of great exhibits. Center stage belongs to Miss Veedol, but beyond a beautiful replica of her (genuine article was lost at sea a few years after its trans-Pacific flight)...More

An outstanding museum with many educational displays. Plenty of choices for children and adults. Several workshops for scientific studies and demonstrations. Great display of a restoration of a WW II aircraft. Good aircraft outside for viewing.

Went here with two toddler aged kids and two adults. There were enough interesting exhibits for all ages. A lot of hands on activity and a couple of rides including a flight simulator. The staff was helpful even though their English was limited.

The museum was huge and full of beautiful aircraft. My favorite part - the display of hundreds and hundreds of model airplanes from around the world.

Great spot with superb scientific exploration for the kids. Top notch aviation museum that really wouldn't be expected in such a rural spot. Misawa's aviation history makes this a real gem.
