We loved it

The kids loved it and just enjoyed seeing all the planes and exhibits. As adults, it was very informative and worth while. A good afternoon event with the kids. Well done!

It is a small museum that is dedicated to preserving the local history during World War II. As in so many small town the locals worked there, helped the serviceman stationed there, and offered encouragement to so many who were boys yesterday, but became men overnight.

He loved it. Lots to see in a little space. Worth the cost of admission. We spent about two hours there. Wish they had more planes outside that we could see though

Great museum, Great displays. From the intro video in the Pilots' briefing room to the F-14 on display this was a quality facility. F-16, UH-1H, little birds, F-5, Thunberbolt just to name a few. Another surprise here was the USCG display "All Available Boats", incredible little known story of the evacuation of manhattan island during 9/11. I highly recommend this... More

I you are anywhere near the Cape May airport make it a point to go over to the NAS Aviation Museum. It's worth the trip. You can stroll inside and outside through several vintage aircraft.

My husband and I visited this museum and found the displays to be very interesting. There was a wide variety of airplanes, helicopters and jets. A good place to spend a couple of hours.

I have been here twice and enjoyed seeing all the old war planes jeeps even boats. You can go into many of them and get a feel for the era. Cute little gift shop. You can get a discount ticket for here with the lighthouse.
