The Military Aviation Museum is the highlight of the VA Beach area. Having done two tours at Norfolk, I've visited this place many times over the years. What makes this museum unique is that all of their aircraft are airworthy. That, in itself, is a...More

The regular admission is $15 for adults, but as we arrived after 3PM and were limited to touring the main building, we were charged $12 per person.
