Experience the thrill at “America's Flying Museum” when historic aircraft roar to life, and take to the skies right in front of you… The Military Aviation Museum is home to one of the largest FLYING collections of World War I and World War II era military aircraft in the world! Nestled in Virginia Beach, the Military Aviation Museum stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit of America, housing one of the world's most expansive collections of operational vintage military aircraft. These flying relics, rescued from the ravages of battle and meticulously restored to their former glory, act as tangible time machines, connecting visitors to the pivotal moments in history that shaped the modern world. Encompassing a sprawling 130 acres, the museum boasts a diverse array of aircraft spanning different eras, including World War I and World War II, providing a panorama of the evolution of aviation technology. The Museum's expansive campus features original structures from historic battlefields, a grass runway, cavernous hangars, and state-of-the-art maintenance and restoration facilities, earning it the moniker "Warbird Heaven." A notable feature of the museum is its unwavering commitment to maintaining these vintage aircraft in airworthy condition. This dedication culminates in the Summer of Flight (May – Oct), Flying Proms (June), and Warbirds Over the Beach (Oct) events, drawing audiences from around the globe. Attendees can witness historic planes in action from the flight line or the air-conditioned Warbird Observation Deck, immersing themselves in the graceful maneuvers and thunderous engine roars for an unparalleled experience. Beyond the aircraft, the museum offers daily guided tours, rotating exhibits, special events, and summer camps, catering to families, history enthusiasts, aviation buffs, and school groups alike. Interactive activities, flight simulators, and knowledgeable staff further enhance the visitor experience, making it both entertaining and educational for all ages.
