The Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum is an aviation museum located at the Cape May Airport in Lower Township, New Jersey Facilities, The Cape May Airport, which hosts the museum, was originally constructed by the U.S. Navy from 1941-1942. Commissioned in April 1943 as Naval Air Station Rio Grande, the field was so named due to its proximity to the community of Rio Grande, New Jersey. Due to problems with mail, telegram and telephone service, caused in part by confusion with the city of Rio Grande, Texas, the Navy opted to rename the airfield as Naval Air Station Wildwood in June 1943. The air station remained in operation as an active naval installation throughout World War II, primarily focused on training operations for Naval Aviators and enlisted Naval Air crewmen in dive bomber, torpedo bomber and fighter aircraft. Following the end of World War II, the airfield was declared excess to military requirements and was converted to a civilian airport.The museum is located in the airport’s Hangar #1, which is typical of the design of many U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps aircraft hangars of the 1940s, many of which are still in use today at both active Naval Air Stations, Marine Corps Air Stations and Coast Guard Air Stations across the United States, as well as other civilian airports that formerly served as air stations. The museum’s hangar is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Adults: $12.00 Seniors & Veterans: $11.00 Children: 3 thru 12 $10.00 Children under 3: FREE! Active Duty Military w/ ID: FREE! *Military dependents must pay regular admission.
EcoVentures (Cape May)
The Grand Hotel 1045 Beach Ave Cape May, NJ 08204
Now registering for Surf Lessons & Ecoventures Summer Adventure Programs! Whether you live in the Cape May County area or you’re visiting the shore on vacation, EcoVentures offers daily outdoor activities for kids, ages 5-13. Programs take place from 10am to 4pm, Monday-Friday at participating hotels and resorts, and give children the opportunity to experience beachside activities like surfing, skimboarding, snorkeling, and more, all while learning about marine biology and the environment. Using our hands-on approach to teach nature-based adventure activities, our dedicated instructors harness childrens’ curiosity and investigative minds to inspire them while having the time of their lives. We incorporate environmental education into every aspect of our programs: children learn about tidal movements and waves during skim and bodyboarding lessons; identify fish and shellfish species, as well as their local significance, while snorkeling; and learn about beach erosion and dynamic food webs while on beach walks. These programs are the perfect opportunity for everyone in the whole family to enjoy their summer vacation. While the kids are busy at EcoVentures snorkeling, bodyboarding, and having a blast with other children, parents are free to enjoy a peaceful day of their own! When you’re looking for the perfect kid’s activities or things to do in Cape May, EcoVentures has something for everyone! Throughout the week’s programs, instructors will lead activities that vary each day and include a deep-sea fishing trip each Friday. Click on the program locations below for more details about the camp location closest to you. All EcoVentures program instructors are CPR/First Aid certified and have a true passion for sharing their love of the ocean, environment, and nature with a young audience. Because we like to give each child plenty of attention and instruction, EcoVentures Adventure Programs have a very low instructor-to-child ratio and small group sizes. You do not need to be staying at the hotel to participate. Pre-registration is encouraged as programs fill up fast. Sign up and reserve your space today!
