I took my dad, because I thought he'd like it since he was in the Army Air Corps in WW2 … he loved it, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it too! It has over 30 historic planes, including three that Charles...More

Small but nice museum. Impressive collection of pre-WW2 aircraft and best model and diorama displays I've ever seen, worth your time :-)

The museum is located by the airport. It had several displays that were interactive (they could be touched, played with or sat in). A lot of attention was put into this collection, which had both private and military planes, and also included artifacts, posters, antiques...More

I've flown in and out of Richmond International Airport many, many times and often wanted to stop at this museum because of the SR-71 and F-14 out in front. Today I finally did, thanks in large part to a local deal that got us four...More

All kinds of great airplanes to look at, and interesting information. Some good exhibits on the physics of flight and an interesting section on byrd's flights in Antarctica. not too taxing...a nice way to spend a hot afternoon in Richmond, and not at all expensive.

Outside a visiter will be greeted by a Grummam F-14 Tomcat & a SR-71 Blackbird. In the lobby two ealy Wright gliders hang from the ceiling, both replicas. I would say half of the a/c are biplanes. Several a/c hang from the ceiling. All floor...More

The TA reviews were so good for this one that I decided to see for myself. My kids and I had a great time. I think the price is reasonable for what they have, and the exhibits are very informative. Sometimes in the large museums,...More
