Blue Angels A-4 Skyhawks

Aircraft & Exhibits

They are biplanes of the Great War, record-setters, experimental platforms and survivors of epic aerial battles. In service they splashed through Pacific swells, slammed down on the pitching decks of aircraft carriers, flew through hails of gunfire and blasted to the stars. The National Naval Aviation Museum features over 150 beautifully restored aircraft, including rare and one-of-a-kind flying machines such as the NC-4 (first to cross the Atlantic by air), SBD Dauntless Bureau Number 2106 (a veteran of the Battle of Midway), the Que Sera Sera (first aircraft to land at the South Pole), the last combat F-14D Tomcat, and many, many more.

Continuing the story of Naval Aviation, the Museum’s exhibits provide a closer look at people and events that shaped our history. From vintage uniforms and historic documents displayed in brilliant mahogany display cases, to dioramas that transport visitors to the World War I Western Front, Main Street U.S.A. in 1943, and the depths of Lake Michigan, the exhibits of the National Naval Aviation Museum seek to capture the human element of the enduring history of Naval air power. Each represents a chapter of that story—stirring tales of combat, scientific discovery, technological achievement, and triumphs of the human spirit.

Here you can browse an alphabetical listing of the Museum’s acclaimed aircraft collection with links to pages detailing their histories, as well as a listing of Museum exhibits categorized by location.
