First off there is no charge. This is on the military base but access was easy. Everyone was very polite and the experience was very educational and enjoyable.

Spent an afternoon here and could have spent another day. Aircraft, flight simulators, IMAX, 4-D theater and more. History all around. Great for adults and kids alike.

If you are a Naval Aviation Museum buff, this is a must see. Totally free and has a full compliment of aviation history. Lot of free parking and a small restaurant. Just a short distance from the Lighthouse Museum.

This place is a treasure trove of not just naval aviation, but aircraft from other countries as well. There’s a very nice ME 262 and a Zero and both are in great shape as well as a MIG-15. Lots of great exhibits. Worth the trip.
