This so far the best military aircraft museums I´ve ever seen. Not only because of the extensive variety and volume of airplanes on display, but because of the exemplary condition of the flying machines. Being the Navy, everything must be in perfect condition, and it...More

We planned our trip to the museum to coincide with the Blue Angels practice session. I think these happen most Tuesday's and Wednesday's at 11.30, but check the Museum website, as they don't do every week. Would recommend arriving early, we didn't get there until...More

Admission is always FREE! I always make a donation before I leave. You'll have to inquire about tours on arrival. Don't miss the IMAX presentation and simulators (small fees)!

Don't think so.
I would like recommendations for a mid-priced hotel located close to the National Naval Aviation Museum. Do any hotels offer a shuttle to the site? Thank you

There are unlikely to be shuttles to this area. Uber works well there, though and is about half the price of a taxi. I stayed last at the Ramada in pace and it was decent and cheap. my review is on Tripadvisor. the further... More
