Small but very nice air museum. They have so many great planes from new to old. Great gift shop as well, and you can go to the gift shop with paying admission.

Our grandkids come every summer and stay with us. The museum is always on their list of things to do. I retired from Naval aviation so it a joy to take them around and explain the different exhibits. Definitely recommend for all ages.

This museum is on the smaller side, but it does have a nice set of static displays outside. Will go again

This is a terrific Air Museum - so many different air-related things to see and experience. Even a simulator! Walk outside and see and touch the REAL thing! Great for a day trip - catch some seafood in Solomon's afterwards!

We enjoyed the Pax River Naval Air Museum. It is small but very nice. A lot of information about NAS Pax River. Only one building was open due to renovations so we will revisit at a later date. But we did enjoy it!
