It has airplane models outside of the center where tourist can take picture. It has a garden view outside. Inside there are small models of aircrafts displayed inside a glass. There is also an aircraft seat for taking pictures. It is educational and it is free.

Our company attended a meeting at the Center. The space was great and it was nice to have a place convenient to the hotels near by. The staff were great and provided what we needed for the event.

I walked from my Hotel (holiday Inn) since this tourist and event center was behind the hotel. There was a few aircraft on display out front and some models and posters inside talking about the aircraft there at MCAS Cherry Point. There is a good history lesson about the area that my son and I thought was interesting. I would... More

Waste of time if you are going to look at displays. They do have some of course, but they aren't very well done.

There is a gym and three Pokestops at this location that attract many Pokemon enthusiasts day and night! Gotta catch 'me all!

We stopped here and viewed the various aircraft they had on display. The curator was very helpful on recommending places to eat and things to see.

It looks like a nice place. They were having an exhibit of Marine aircraft and had several outside. We looked at them as well as a memorial to service members. Plenty of parking and a welcoming looking building

Visited on a cold winter weekend day, nice displays and information about the city of Havelock plus Cherry Point base. Also info available on any part of North Carolina. Our first time to this city so it was a good stop and free. Nice bathroom facility.
