  • This is a wayside museum on Mercury BLVD in Hampton VA that is an adjunct to a library. I drive by almost daily. I f you are interested in getting up close to WW2, Korean or Viet Nam Era war aircraft ...  more »
  • While on spring break, we drove past this while heading to Williamsburg. So, I took my son the next morning and he really enjoyed it! It only takes a few minutes to walk around the planes outside, but...  more »

  • Nice place to come see some planes and rockets. Outside park, so come on a nice day. Some are not in the greatest shape, but you can get right up next to it so that is nice.
  • Can't really beat free. Good inexpensive place to take your kids and see some cool plane models (small and life sized). We came the day after a torrential downpour so there was a lot of water outside to navigate around, as a previous reviewer noted. If you want a guided tour a sign at the front says to call ahead to register....not sure why as most of the staff I encountered didn't look too busy and barely greeted us. Oh well, 2/3 of my gang are probably too young to fully appreciate the tour anyways. There is plenty of information to keep you busy on your own however, from all the model planes, to the books, and the plaques filled with info, if you read everything you'll be here for hours. Playground outside was a nice touch for those with younger kids. Sign in and leave a donation in the box as you enter or before you leave...I'm sure it's hard to maintain something like this for free of cost.
  • For a small museum it if full of aviation info, models and real missiles and aircraft. Well worth stopping
  • The Air Power Park is from an era long gone. Go there and see the rockets, hack the Ingress portals, and do the easy missions. Avoid going there after rain as the walkway behind the building will be flooded. There is poor drainage. This small park is located beside a marshy area.
  • It's nice to admire. Peaceful.
