Two big hangars full of old but working planes and many other exhibits stand by a working runway where you can see some of its exhibits in operation

Fantastic collection of aircraft, knowledgeable guides and nice grounds. Went with a Korean War Veteran group and little attention given to their needs (such as opening windows and doors for ventilation). Plan your visit for cooler time of year!

Taxi. Museum is 12+ miles from boardwalk. Didn't see a whole lot of other public transportation out of the boardwalk area.
