Currently the Museum and Gardens are open Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4:00 p.m. Our primary exhibit is a timeline history of the Naval Air Station through photographs dealing with life on the base, the aircraft, squadrons and missions. There are many artifacts to see as well, plus a special exhibit about SERE school—a very realistic training program to show downed pilots and others caught behind enemy lines how to survive, evade, resist and escape their captors. Our flight simulator will let you “fly” just about any aircraft almost anywhere in the world. Do you have what it takes to be a Blue Angel and fly a solo in the Great State of Maine Airshow?”
