From the moment you walk in, exploring the museum tells a fascinating story. Take a trip through time, wandering from the 1960’s to now, learning about the history of the military on Whidbey Island and in the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy authentic photos and historic military artifacts while reading the true stories of the men and women who served in the area.
The PBY Naval Air Museum is a blast for the entire family! With interactive exhibits, including flight simulators and an accessible PBY nose gun turret, there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained. For a unique experience, try on the night vision goggles or see if you can lift an actual tailhook!
After exploring the history and exhibits inside the museum, head across the street to walk amongst the real thing. The museum boasts a complete PBY aircraft! The PBY is part of an impressive collection of military vehicles and aircraft, lovingly restored by local veterans and volunteers.
