I took my 12 year old grandson and we both enjoyed it. There's a lot to see and you can get up close and in some cases sit in the planes which he loved.

We stumbled upon this museum during a day of Cape May wine tasting. How did we not know about this fabulous place?? The place was much bigger than expected, and housed quite a few military-type aircraft and such. You could walk up to each, touch,...More

This museum is a small but wonderful place. We learned a lot and saw many vintage aircraft. Super! The folks there explained so much about the history of the base and aircraft. Very good visit. Would go again.

A really fantastic display of a wide variety of aircraft...from mig-15 to stearman to f-14. Many you can actually climb in. Particularly fascinating display of aircraft engines from double-wasp radials to current fan-jet turbines. I did not expect such a great museum in such an...More

Enjoyed our visit with some great history! Only suggestion would be to have more/brighter lighting inside the hangar... pics were hard to get with only natural light on an overcast day.
