This would be a good place to take kids, although there are a lot of exhibits that aren't under glass, so you'll want to watch them! Everything that we saw was interesting. The best part was the outside planes and helicopters. They had a flight simulator, but it was closed. Once they finish their new building I would be interested in going back again.

Went here to kill some time on a rainy day. They did their best but it could use some funding and renovation. Can't ask for much from a free museum. The planes outside were the best part of the day. It was neat to see them up close and personal.
Great place for kids, particularly boys

Our 8 year old son thoroughly enjoyed it. He had the opportunity to do the flight simulator, which he enjoyed immensely. You could easily spend several hours at the museum, inside and out. Lots of parking.
Fun place with great information!

This was a good place to take the kids and show them first hand what happens on the PAX Naval Air Station. We got to see how they train in the flight simulators, as well as the planes that are used in the Navy. There is a lot of good information here and the kids enjoyed it!
Tribute to naval aviation history

This small facility packs in a lot of history. Admission is free and tour is self-guided, although there was a military veteran there (volunteering as a docent?) who was able to answer all our questions. The section with the prototypes and ejection seats was interesting. Guests are prohibited from touching some of the exhibits, but there are others that one can get into. The museum is well-laid out and informative.
