National Naval Aviation Museum

By far the coolest aviation museum I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot! Our 12 year old son was so excited while visiting here. This is the first time he's liked everything there. It's free, the restaurant on site was small, reasonably priced and the food was good. Not many signs in the area pointing you to it, so use your GPS. It's located on an active military base so you must have an ID at the entry gate.
