Planes, Trains & Santa! at Military Aviation Museum on Thanksgiving Weekend



The Military Aviation Museum is holding a special family event at their facility in Pungo, Virginia on Friday through Sunday over the Thanksgiving Weekend (Nov. 25th – 27th, 2022). We cannot imagine a more innovative approach for bringing a love of aviation into the hearts and minds of the next generation… so bravo to the Military Aviation Museum for their creativity in this effort. It will certainly be an event which the whole family will enjoy, and create everlasting positive aviation memories for those who attend. So without further ado, here is the museum’s description for what you can expect when you attend…


Santa Claus has filed his flight plan for the Military Aviation Museum!

Bring your family for a fun filled day with Planes, Trains and Santa! Get your portrait with Santa! The Marine Corps Reserves will be collecting donations for Toys for Tots! The Tidewater Division of the National Model Railroad Association are hosting a variety of train experiences, allowing kids (and adults!) of all ages to see and interact with amazing model train exhibits.

A great family event to include in your Thanksgiving Weekend!

Event Details:

Santa flies into the museum each day at 10:00 a.m. in a vintage airplane, weather permitting. Get your picture with Santa, see loads of vintage airplanes and marvel at the hangar overrun with trains!

All children 17 and under get in free all weekend. Regular prices apply for guests 18 and older. Museum members get in free!
All guests with active memberships or pre-purchased tickets get priority access to sit with Santa! Portraits with Santa are taken by Museum Photographers and are printed on-site at a cost of $5.00 per print.

Plenty of activities for the whole family throughout the day!

Make and Take Pom-Pom Ornaments, Holiday Propeller Pinwheels, Holiday Beaded Jewelry (make a necklace or bracelet with holiday themed beads!), Get a Christmas Themed Temporary Tattoo or make a button at our Warbird Coloring & Button Making station.
Also returning this year are two of last year’s most popular activities.
  • Holiday Cards for Service Members – Make a holiday card, and include your warm wishes for a service member during the season! The Museum will collect the cards and see that they are sent to service members overseas.
  • Reindeer Ornaments – Create a fun and festive reindeer with various decorations and of course, googly eyes! Whether its Dasher, Dancer, Rudolph or a completely new reindeer of your own devising, this craft is fun for the whole family.
