  • This Museum is the perfect place for anyone who appreciates the history of flight, from the standpoint of the US Navy. Well worth the drive from Lillian, Alabama and over Perdido Bay. All kinds of.....  more »
  • You need a military ID to get on base at this time for security reasons. But if you have that there is a great museum on base. I -Max is a must see. Plus the simulator is a gas.  more »

  • The museum was breathtaking and so informative. I especially liked the models of the aircraft carriers since my Dad and Brother each served on them while in the Navy.
  • Dont miss this! Free viewing of the amazing Blue Angels. Check the practice schedule and get there early to get a seat up on the bleachers for best views. Then check out the museum. A real treat for any aviation fan.
