We absolutely loved this museum. So much to see, so many neat things to see. Would highly recommend a trip here. We were there for over two hours and plan to come back as we did not get to see everything.

This is a must, even if you're not big on museums, you'll love it there! There's things to do, airplanes to crawl in, around, through, etc. There is an IMAX theatre, a 4D theatre, movies playing and it's very informative while still fun.

This is the biggest and best naval aviation museum in the world. It doesn't matter how far you have to come, it's worth it!

Absolutely amazing place. Spent nearly a whole day there. Planes, imax movies, flight line tour everything was great. Our bus tour operator used to fly Airforce 1. Don’t miss it if you’re in the area.

Great place to stop in for a little education and see some really cool planes. Can't beat the educations, the sights; and the sounds of being in and around all of these great planes and learning about the history that they all share.

If you want to see Naval Aircraft that have a historical history then this is the place for you. From WWI all through to The wars with Iraq and everything in between. Even a tribute to our former base in the Philippines.

Not only is it a restaurant, it is the re-built authentic Cubi Bar (Philippines) Officers Club, complete with historic squadron badges and memorabilia.

No, this is a museum and I do not believe pets are allowed.
