Great display of important historic aircraft from per WWII to the present. Not a huge museum, but worth a visit - especially when flying in or out of RIC. Gift shop is great.

I appreciate museums which take genuine effort in bringing interesting exhibits for their visitors, and the VAM does precisely that despite it's small size. Even if you have merely a passing interest in aviation, you owe it to yourself to visit this well-stocked little museum....More
