Worth the drive Even adults who don't like planes should like this place. We have went 3 times and still see new things.

Took my husband here on our last day of vacation. He absolutely loved it and had a great time. It was huge with a ton to see, and even has simulation rides inside the museum. A definite must see while in town.

Came here for a Change of Command..the museum is very accommodating to large size groups. Has an area with a stage for official ceremonies. Great place for guests to look around and enjoy history and look at different aircraft

Lots and lots of planes/aviation themes. The place was much larger then I expected. Free admission! Very cool place.

We stoped by for an hour and a half. We needed about 3 days to see it all but what we saw we enjoyed. Take in the tour rather than doing the self guided way

Admission is always FREE! I always make a donation before I leave. You'll have to inquire about tours on arrival. Don't miss the IMAX presentation and simulators (small fees)!

Don't think so.
I would like recommendations for a mid-priced hotel located close to the National Naval Aviation Museum. Do any hotels offer a shuttle to the site? Thank you

There are unlikely to be shuttles to this area. Uber works well there, though and is about half the price of a taxi. I stayed last at the Ramada in pace and it was decent and cheap. my review is on Tripadvisor. the further... More
