You Like Planes? You like Planets? You like excited Kids? You like to walk around and test things and read. this place is for you. If you still excited and need more they have an IMAX right inside with a movie playing. Go one go all you will enjoy this trip. A little pricey for large families. Look for coupons if you can find some. Have a great trip

We went there some years ago and the children and us adults found it very nice and interesting. We enjoyed our trip there and would recommend it.

I took my 21 month old son to the museum hoping there would be enough for him to do... I ended up DRAGGING him out of the museum, kicking and screaming! We spent almost 3 hours there and loved everything! Clifford the Big Red Dog exhibit is great for toddlers. The staff was great; very nice and helpful. Would highly recommend this place to anyone in Hampton

While it doesn't have the inventory of the Smithsonian, for a local museum, it has an amazing amount of aerospace history, certainly due to the local NASA connection. It's a great way to spend a few hours for the airminded or for a family on a rainy day. We even did "Trick or Treat" in the building as part of a local event. It's worth a stop!

On a family vacation trip to Hampton VA, we stopped at the air and space center. I was very disappointed that I paid $11 dollars to visit a center that most exhibits were broken, missing pieces, and run down. It was ok for adults that wanted to read read read but for children it was a place to run around in circles.
