Be sure to wear some warm clothing. The museum is housed in an old blimp hangar which in itself was amazing. It was interesting to hear about the two hangars, one of which is still intact, and to check out the old planes and memorabilia....More

Did was not bad. The building is freezing this time of the year so dress warm. We were only there for 30 minutes because there is not much to see.

We went here looking for a history of the naval station as we had family stationed there in WWII. This museum is so much more than that. They have collections of all sorts of transportation from tractors to helicopters. The exhibits attempt to recreate what...More

We love the air museum. It's like walking but in time to 1944. It even smells like 1944. This place is for authentic ww2 buffs, and is a must see for anyone over the age of 30. I can't say enough good things about this...More

Great play area for kids! The museum has some neat exhibits and the entry fee is not bad. It’s a smaller museum but the historical pieces make it worth a stop.

The hangar was full of planes and history. It was extremely cold and the guy at the counter says it was about 40 degrees in the hangar most of the year and only gets up to 60 in the heat of the summer.

Went to the blimp hanger for Veterans Day. Nice little ceremony for the Veterans. Several display items and a little café. I had hoped for little more but I was excited to see how a blimp hanger looked inside. My grandfather helped build blimp hangers...More

I toured this museum about 10 years ago and remember far more airplanes than are there today. Perhaps the cost of maintaining the museum has led to the sale of aircraft. Last visit we spent several hours viewing planes and walking around. This time 15...More

I have mixed feelings. From the road, an impressive looking place. And the history of the site is really interesting. I learned a lot about how blimps were planned to be utilized in WW II. The museum, I would characterize, as a work in progress....More

Even though this hangar was used during and after WWII for storing blimps, there are none there now. As you might imagine, the hangar is HUGE in order to hold 6 - 9 blimps! For me the most interesting part was the short film explaining...More

The Erickson Guppy will not fly again. I called the museum and is will remain grounded for public viewing. Many of the planes inside the hangar do fly and that is because they belong to private owners who have restored them... More
