Stumbled into this place a few years back. Operated by volunteers and slowly built up over a few decades. Amazing history there. No multimedia support which I have mentioned to them.

The tour guides were great with my two kids under 3 and wonderful guides. Real good inventory and nice memorabilia. Wanna really thank a vet donate and spend time with one.

I recommend a visit here if you are down at the outlets, take time out from shopping ( it's next door ) you will be well informed by lovely Col Don...... You get the opportunity to climb aboard a couple of planes, take pictures and learn and appreciate how it was. $10 entry 2014. When we arrived we were urged... More

We were lucky enough to find this place. What a great museum. The volunteers were helpful and so full of knowledge. My husbands really enjoyed it. I'm not as interested, but still found it ientertaining The volunteers enthusiasms and anecdotal stories, made it all very interesting.

My family was looking for something different to do in the Camarillo area, and we wanted to do some shopping at the outlets, so I did a quick search and found the Commemorative Aviation Museum right here on TripAdvisor. Since both my sister and brother-in-law are retired from the Air Force, I knew they would love it, but I didn't... More

If you are looking for something unique and are interested in WWII planes and history, this is a great museum. They have two airplane hangers and are preparing to build a third. There is also an outdoor area with a few more planes. Plan on spending a few hours here when you come. For $10, you receive a docent-guided tour... More

This was a nice place to visit. With paid admission ($7 'suggested', per person, so be aware) you got a docent to tour you around the place for as long as you like. They'll tell you a great deal about what their goals are, what state most of the planes are in, and history behind them. We got lucky and... More

The Commemorative Air Force Aviation Museum is located next to the Camarillo Airport. From Pleasant Valley Road, turn at the light to Eubanks Street. There are two hangars of aircraft to see. Retired military pilots volunteer there and have years of experience to share with visitors. They can escort you in groups or you can visit on your own. Recommend... More

Nothing to dislike - place is absolutely tops. Gentlemen who work there are retired military, pilots, well meaning, vast knowledge, hands on Guys. Are overflowing with details and have the time and desire to teach you and escort you as you wander. Very indepth place. So dang cool - should be a school visit for all areas.
