Get Ready! Santa is coming to town!

Come join us for Planes, Trains and Santa at the Military Aviation Museum on the 23rd & 24th of November from 09-1700 and Sunday the 25th from 09-1500! The Tidewater Division of the National Model Railroad Association hosts a variety of train experiences, allowing kids (and adults!) of all ages to see and interact with amazing model train exhibits.

Santa flies into the museum each day at 10am on a vintage 1941 Stearman biplane, because sometimes reindeer just have to rest!  Get your picture with Santa, see loads of vintage airplanes, and marvel at the hangar overrun with trains and fire trucks.

Santa and the Marine Corps Reserves will also be collecting donations for Toys for Tots!

All children 17 and under get in free all weekend. Regular prices apply for guests 18 and older.  Museum members get in free!

Buy your tickets on online, over the phone at 757-721-7767 or at the door.  The museum is open 9am-5pm, closed on Thanksgiving.
