The Museum is located at 12450 SW 152nd Street, Miami, Florida, adjacent to the Miami-Dade County MetroZoo, on the site of the former Naval Air Station, Richmond. This air station was the second largest WWII "Airship" base in the United States. Lakehurst, N.J. was the largest. NAS Richmond was a key link in the U.S. Navy's role in protecting shipping in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean during World War II. Although the base was open only for three years, the airships and heavier-than-air aircraft based here, provided critical air support for convoys heading to Europe, and for anti-submarine warfare. The Naval Air Station exhibit is open during regular museum hours.
