Its been years since we've visited the Cradle of Aviation Museum. When the kids were little, they were a little bored when this was just a bunch of planes in a couple big, old hangers. Now it is a rich, multimedia experience that youngsters can get drawn into. Its not quite the Smithsonian, but it is very well done. A recommended family day.

I like this museum. It has many Grumman and other Long Island engineers giving their time.

This place is multi-leveled and has many educational exhibits. I learned a lot as I walked through the years of aviations growth her on Long island.

I do wonder if adults appreciate it more than kids?

Excellent!

The best museum on long island to view all aircraft of all ages. Plenty to see, hear and gain valuable information.

What an extraordinary place to take your children at virtually any age. The exhibits and the Imax theater are a fantastic value. I am not an aeronautical enthusiast, but I was completely blown away by the quality of the planes. They have everything from vintage planes to jets, and the staff is very insightful and friendly. A+ highly recommended.
