    Love it!

    Finding something to do with your dog while it rains is hard! We decided to wear our boys on our back and had a blast walking around and checking the history out! The nice guy at the front door who might have been the manager was so incredibly nice and even posted our boys on their Facebook! We plan on going back to one of their festivals one day!

    Airfest Fun Pup Outing

    Took out 4 year old dog and new puppy to the Museum’s annual airfest. Pups had a fun time. everyone was super friendly. it can get hot outside on the tarmac - but can find shade and a breeze for them. Will be coming back to check out the museum again.

    Best Dog/Dad fun possible

    My wife suggested we go here with our 3 year old cavapoo. I'm a history buff and loved the airplanes and the story of Cape May base. We had a blast sitting in the cockpits of each and the museum is very interactive and fun for all ages and species. Well worth the admission price and staff were very excited to see dogs, even encouraging us to take pics with them in each aircraft. Also a great place to pick up used books and gifts for family members who were in all branches.

    My only suggestion is to go as close to 10am in the summer, since there is limited ventilation and it gets hot in the hangar when the sun is out.

    Nice to find a dog friendly museum!

    I've been to many aviation museums and this is one of the better ones. And no problem bringing doggo in. Very nice experience.

    Educational Fun!

    We had a great time, especially our pup, Dixon who had dressed up for the occasion. Everyone there is super friendly & welcoming. Great photo ops and you learn so much about the history of aviation. Would visit again!

    Awesome Museum

    Was very interesting for human and dog. Dogs are allowed to go inside the different planes and exhibits. All of the staff were very friendly and my dog got many pets.
