Naval Aviation transcends both time and space, from wood and fabric biplanes to the frontiers of outerspace. The Museum captures Naval Aviation's heritage and brings its story of challenge, ingenuity and courage to you.

The National Naval Aviation Museum is the world's largest Naval Aviation museum and one of the most-visited museums in the state of Florida. Share the excitement of Naval Aviation's rich history and see more than 150 beautifully restored aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Aviation. These historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft are displayed both inside the Museum's nearly 300,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on its 37-acre grounds.

The West Wing is devoted almost exclusively to World War II carrier aviation and showcases a full-size replica of USS Cabot's aircraft carrier island and flight deck. Famous World War II aircraft such as the Corsair, Dauntless and Hellcat stand nearby ready for take-off, while other magnificent birds like the Wildcat, Avenger and Kingfisher fly overhead. Strap into one of the many cockpit trainers on the Second Deck for pretend test flights or try your hand at defending a ship from Cabot's anti-aircraft gun battery on the Main Deck. The Museum also tells the human side of Naval Aviation and features memorabilia from each era of fighting, including personal mementos from historic battles, flight logs, vintage equipment and flight clothing.
