He loved it. Lots to see in a little space. Worth the cost of admission. We spent about two hours there. Wish they had more planes outside that we could see though

Went there at my hubby's request. It was historical and very informative. My husband loved seeing all the old planes and memorabilia. Great place for photo ops.

Great museum, Great displays. From the intro video in the Pilots' briefing room to the F-14 on display this was a quality facility. F-16, UH-1H, little birds, F-5, Thunberbolt just to name a few. Another surprise here was the USCG display "All Available Boats", incredible little known story of the evacuation of manhattan island during 9/11. I highly recommend this... More

I you are anywhere near the Cape May airport make it a point to go over to the NAS Aviation Museum. It's worth the trip. You can stroll inside and outside through several vintage aircraft.

My husband and I visited this museum and found the displays to be very interesting. There was a wide variety of airplanes, helicopters and jets. A good place to spend a couple of hours.

I have been here twice and enjoyed seeing all the old war planes jeeps even boats. You can go into many of them and get a feel for the era. Cute little gift shop. You can get a discount ticket for here with the lighthouse.

Nice museum. Good exhibits on when this was a dive bomber training airport for WWII dive bombers. Airport is nice too if you have a small plane. Decent breakfast / lunch joint on site but call, as of this date closed for renovations. If you fly in GA you will need a car or taxi to get to the beach....

Went on a very rainy cold windy day! Dress warm as the hangar is not heated. The movie was excellent. There are many planes and helicopter you can sit, touch and climb around. Many hands on activities for kids. Nice 9/11 exhibit. The 1940's room was great!! Fun and interesting! When you are done or before you enter, be sure... More

A sunny November day when we visited the museum was quiet but interesting. As a maritime aviator I found it fascinating to learn about the history of Naval Aviation Training in the area as well as seeing some of the great aircraft they have on display.
