Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum Reviews & Ratings
An interesting place. The planes are great! Take a self-guided tour. Each plane has a sign with all kinds of information that is well organized so you can just read your favorite type: speed, weight, special features, year the first of this model was made, the history of this specific plane, and more. However, I think my favorite part was the displays inside the museum. They include information about many incredible courageous men, women and dogs. The displays are well done and compelling including photos, artwork, and paraphernalia.
Small little museum but it has tons of stuff from various different time periods and different parts of past wars. Outside, there are many different aircraft that you can take a look at. During summer they have open cockpit days which are perfect for kids. When I went, admission was free but they encourage a $5 donation per person. There was lot of friendly staff available to answer any questions you might have.
Loved this free museum with knowledgeable volunteer staff. Interesting static displays and not crowded. Talked with Daniel about his service in the navy and things about the museum and local area. Plan for upwards of 2 hours to see everything but could easily do a short visit of 30 minutes to just see the static displays.
Amazing place to go with the family. Rich in history and the planea are set up with lots of information. I highly recommend if you live this kind of stuff. There is plenty of opportunity to experience quality time with the kiddos.
Admission is free, but they ask for a $5 donation, which is completely worth it. They have helicopters and jets on display that have historical significance. The staff are retired military and very knowledgeable, one of them was present during the attack on Pear Harbor and it was an honor to shake his hand.
