  • Just chanced to see this place on an impulse. Closes early but we were just in time for a hurried visit and we did not regret it. It was awesome with exhibits of all aeroplanes even from the world war...  read more »
  • Our family decided to check this out today and my boys loved the displays and exhibits! I loved reading the history of flight as well as many of the other displays. We were disappointed because the IM...  read more »
  • This attraction offers IMAX film along with the Museum. The museum is more than double the cost of the IMAX; however, because there are not separate entrances or anyone checking what was paid for, we ...  read more »
  • Fairly expensive. Not that impressive. Most demonstrations were broken. Target audience seems to be elementary school students. Lots of glitzy things to look at.
  • Took my 9yr old and daughter and 10yr old nephew. They had a decent time. For such a big place I expected more...some of the displays didn't work and there was a lousy cooking "display" I guess that's what you would call it. It was unorganized, could barely here the woman over the kids in other parts of the museum since it was out in the open. This place used to be great...I hope they fix the issues!!
  • Went to see Star Wars 3D at the IMAX theater in the VA Air and Space Center [Hampton]. The movie ticket also covers the admission to the exhibits, and parking across the street was free. While the overall experience was okay, I found the movie theater experience to be much less enjoyable when compared a theater dedicated to just presenting moves [compared with AMC Hampton for an example]. Specifically: - Ticketing process and waiting area is congested. - Concession area is very small and inefficient. Plan ahead and bring some patience. The same person taking your order may be the same one preparing your food order in the kitchen [If you ordered anything other than popcorn, etc.] - IMAX seats have little legroom so my knees were burning long before the movie was over. - Movie started 25 minutes late. - There's no movie trailers like other theaters, just a short loop advertising the VA Air and Space Center over and over, and over. - Did I mention the movie started late? - There's only two restrooms in the facility [that I knew of], one by the theater and one by the main entry, both had long lines at the end of the movie. [So again, plan accordingly]. I'm not intending to be negative on the Air and Space Center or the IMAX theater as they make a great combination, however if you're expecting the same going out to "the movies" experience you're going to get something different here. Not a bad thing, but just go in with the right expectations and you'll be fine.
  • Nice theater but the seats weren't very comfortable and not sure if I just got a bad pair but the 3D glasses had somewhat of a glare on one side that took away from my focus on the feature presentation.
  • Saw a movie in their IMAX theater. One of the most uncomfortable seats ever. This IMAX might be good for short films, but not major motion pictures.
