An excellent museum. The exhibits are not too crowded and lighting is good. Well worth a visit, especially for the Vultee.

A nice little museum. Worth the time if you are in the area, but slightly overpriced. I especially liked the early general aviation collection. The Aeronca C2 and C3, Taylor E-2 Cub, Piper J-3 Cub are (what we now think of as) the planes that started affordable private flying. The rest of the collection is an interesting cross-section, including a few planes of local interest. The SR-71 and F-14 are great to see, but it’s a shame to have them sitting outside, unrestored. There are some good educational demonstrations. I know that some people think I’m under-rating it, but the web-site’s definition of 2 stars is not bad it's “Interesting” and I think that is a good fit for the Virginia Aviation Museum.

There is nothing cooler than having a SR-71 parked less than 2 miles from your home. Small museum with a good variety of planes and friendly staff including a lot of older volunteers usually with some background in aviation. About 3-4 times a year they have an interesting symposium (ex. former SR-71 pilots, or former Tuskegee Airmen). Parking is right up agaist the building, so you wont be delayed much if you take a quick detour en route to some other destination, but probably not worth making a specific trip to the area for.

Great display of classic and golden aged airplanes! Well worth admission price to see some of these aircraft! Not a great gift shop but great display of airplanes!

The Virginia Air and Space Museum is the only private museum with an actual SR-71 on display.

An excellent smaller museum with approximately 25 aircraft on display. Some of them are extremely rare such as the Bellanca Skyrocket & the Vultee V1-A which are the only surviving examples of their type. Museum personnell are knowledgable, friendly & helpful.

One of the finest small aviation museums I've ever visited. Docents were very well informed and everyone I talked to was a pilot! Great experience for this retired Naval Aviator!!!

The focus is on civil aviation in Virginia. The aircraft on display are well maintained and easily viewed. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is because I'm into military aviation.
