There are about 8 different flight related vehicles in the yard outside the building including a chopper from the Korean War. You... More

If you are not that enthusiastic about aviation, the friendly staff here will help you get almost as interested in air and space as they have been. (Yes, I am an air and space fan.) Anyway, on three floors you could see many scale-model sized air and space craft, some full-sized exhibits, and videos as well as pictures, texts, and... More

We went when they open the cock pit and allow children to go inside the planes , trucks and helicopters. This happens 4 times a year. My toddler loved touching everything and I can really see him learning and enjoying the day. The staff were extremely friendly, informative and accommodating to the children.

We go there one Saturday with 2 teenagers. We saw it from the outside and the kids did not want to do in even. The place is small with few aircraft. I think small kids may enjoy it but not for teenagers.

This is a great museum, especially if you're an aviation enthusiast. There's lots to read, some interactive exhibits, especially on the first floor, and the museum covers just about all eras and aspects of aviation and some space travel. I enjoyed watching the orientation video and the video from the International Space Station, in particular. The museum held the attention... More

Despite the name, there's a great deal of space artifacts for space enthusiasts like myself - Mark Kelly's personal, flown items, photographs of the NJ astronauts, a display case on Greg Linteris. The aviation exhibits, both inside and outside are great too, although the 1950s airliner which one can walk through needs some TLC and has seen better days. A... More

We just happened on this place visiting Teterboro Airport. It's small, but we learned a lot about aviation history. They have films and photos in addition to the HOF plaques.

Basically we would have never made it to the moon or had Emilia Earhart without the innovation of the people of New Jersey. Great place to visit in northern NJ. The people that work their really love the place and the fact that you came in the door and are eager to explain and show you all of the exhibits.... More

This museum is a gem of history. They have museum with artifacts (including two actual pieces of wreckage from the Hindenberg), Jet and Propeller engine displays, the first flight simulator, and tributes to many NJ aviation heros. The museum also has an outside exhibit space with the only remaining Martin 202 aircraft, the front section of a Convair 880 jetliner,... More
