Great place to visit. A lot of history. Come early and get tickets for the outside tour. Onsite restaurant so good as well. Every time I come here I find something new and interesting. Great for Scouting groups

One visit will not be enough, thus do not be disappointed if you do not see it all on one visit. I have been there six times in the past and always finding new things to see and view. Staff provides excellent service. From a wide variety of Naval and Coast Guard aircraft from all ages, you will enjoy your... More

This one is a gimme. Great every time, no matter how many times you go. Perfect solo, with friends, family, or kids. Neat stuff in the gift shop and plenty of cool activities and simulators.

We ventured here recently while on a family vacation in Orange Beach, AL. It was roughly a 30 minute drive, and well worth it. As you can tell from Trip Advisor ratings, this place is totally awesome. Four things you should know: First, many of the exhibits are "hands on," meaning you can touch them, go in them, on them,...

My husband absolutely loved it, lots of history and great exhibits. Free admission makes it even better! Many many planes and some you can even climb in!

I'm normally not really that interested in aviation museums but since we were in the area thought it would be worth a quick visit, three hours later I came out only because it was closing! Displays were very well done & not all roped off so you could actually feel & touch the exhibits. There are guided tours several times... More

I had been to the museum several times in the past, but anytime in the past 20 years, so it was good to see how the place has evolved. Gaining access to the base was not much of a hassle, but it is good to be careful since it is an active duty military installation. The museum was rather crowded... More

Loved visiting this place ... No entrance fee. The cafe is a nice place to stop to grab a bite to eat. Great displays, aircraft, shops, movies and exhibits. Everyone who works there were nice and professional. A must go and see!
