Who knew this little museum could offer so much?

We're new to the area, so we decided to take a Saturday morning to acquaint ourselves with the local attractions. We almost missed the museum because of the construction of the new facility right in front of the old metal building that serves as the museum now. Once we got inside, however, we were blown away by the quality and quantity of the exhibits and memorabilia showcasing navy and naval air history of the area! The vintage jets on exhibit outside are visible from the road, but walking right up to them really gives one the experience of the power and history associated with these venerable old planes. Admission is paid inside the museum on the "honor system" and there isn't a lot of staff available to answer questions, etc., but when we went into the gift shop a nice lady came out to help us and we had a great visit with some interesting background info about the new building. Take the family for a fun and educational experience!
A great glimpse of history

Kids will love the flight simulator. Adults will enjoy seeing the planes. Looking forward to the new building!

this place is filled with so many things to look at and do that it keeps you very busy and looking for more . the planes outside are great to see up close and you feel that you are a part of the navy . one place that you have to see .
Looking forward to the new museum facilities

Whether you enjoy military history, aviation or simply want to experience the evolution of a great attraction, take time to visit. The static displays of the aircraft make the stop worthwhile.
So much to see... next time.

What was on display was interesting. I was saddened the simulators were down. There is a new museum under construction and we will be back to visit when the whole collection is on display.
