One of the most remarkable collections of military aircraft I have ever seen. The docents are remarkable also. Their knowledge is never ending. This is a must see attraction when in the Virginia Beach area.

The regular admission is $15 for adults, but as we arrived after 3PM and were limited to touring the main building, we were charged $12 per person.

Taxi. Museum is 12+ miles from boardwalk. Didn't see a whole lot of other public transportation out of the boardwalk area.
