Good museum, they even let you touch the planes. We were there the first of March and our flight line tour got cancelled because of a tornado threat. Won't get back for a couple of years.

When we were there, there were coaches in the parking lot, which is huge.

Very nice museum with frequent tours if you don't have much time. We stayed at an Army base not too far away and they also have a museum which is smaller but worth a visit. The best of the military museums is still the Airforce Museum at WPAFB in Ohio which has been greatly expanded recently and really impossible to see everything in one day. It is also free.

Great museum. Brought back memories of when those flying boats were stationed in Bermuda. Seen the Blue Angels in various aircraft over the years too when the USAF base became a USNAS.

We were there a couple of years ago and have reservations to go back there this September. We managed to get reservations for Battleship Row at the Blue Angel Rec Area. Last time we were put on a premium spot overlooking the old flight line and the bay. Great view!
We spent most of the day inside the museum and didn't get a chance to do the flight line tour so that's a must do this time.
The snack bar is just OK in my book. How can they have a snack bar modeled after the Cubi Point Officers Club and not have lumpia or any other Filipino foods on the menu?
