Saturday, May 23rd- Monday, May 25th, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m
The Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach is holding a free event for the Hampton Roads community over Memorial Day weekend. The free, drive-in exhibit will run from Saturday, May 23rd, till Monday, May 25th, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Visitors will be able to drive their cars around a specially crafted exhibit on the museum grounds to view a selection of the Museum’s fan-favorite WWII aircraft on display. Jerrassic Park, the museum’s unique collection of dinosaur sculptures, is free and open to the public, but we ask that visitors practice social distancing by remaining at least 6 feet apart from other guests. The gift shop is available online for visitors to pick up their purchase through a curbside service. Simply purchase an item online and at checkout select the “pick up” option. Transactions will be ready for pick up at the end of the drive thru.
“Memorial Day is an important time when Americans reflect on the meaning of service and sacrifice. The Military airplanes we will have on display are an important tangible link to those stories from the past,” said Military Aviation Museum Director Keegan Chetwynd. “We wanted to do something special for Memorial Day, but to do so with a focus on keeping everyone safe, which is where the idea of a Drive-Through Museum featuring our largest artifacts came from.”
The museum’s buildings and associated facilities, including restrooms, will remain closed to visitors. Should there be any weather impacts, announcements will be made on the museum’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MilitaryAviationMuseum/.
