    Another well-done museum in Richmond! Not huge, but has some high quality exhibits, especially around the Bernoulli principle. People at the museum were very knowledgeable and helpful. My kids loved being able to actually get in a plan and control the flaps and rudder. Love the SR 71 blackbird!

    I was in the area on business. As an "air head", I make it a point to visit any air museums within reasonable distance of my stay. This was about a mile from my hotel, so was a no-brainer. I went during TS Andrea, so my views of the 3 aircraft parked outside were limited. Seems like every museum has an SR-71 these days! It is a very nice, small museum. Also houses the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame. Mostly older aircraft, but many are gorgeous. Also has a lot of artwork on display. I'd recommend a couple of hours that include a video on the history...Read More

    Very nice museum with rare older (historic) aircraft. Well worth the visit. Located on Richmond International Airport (aka Byrd Airport). Fly-in traffic needs to park at either Richmond Jet (nearest and w/in walking distance) or Million Air (other end of field). Call FBO prior and check on shuttle availability.

I'd recommend a couple of hours that include a video on the history of Richard Evelyn Byrd Flying Field (now Richmond Intl). Worth the price of a very reasonable admission ($6.50).
