I took my 16 year old son here on a random father son day and really enjoyed our visit. This museum has a tour guide that takes you around to the various wwII planes. The suggested "donation" was $10 per adult. We had James as our tour guide, he was very well informed, had a really good attitude and seemed... More

I was very exited to see the last flying B-29 up close and even more to be able to get inside it. I only had the opportunity to go see it on a Saturday because of my work schedule. The plane was being used to give flight tours until 1 PM and was scheduled to be open for walk through... More

Fun for both aviation and war history buffs. Interesting static exhibits and some aircraft still flightworthy. Watch the website for posting of upcoming flight events.

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. It can vary what planes they have in to see, so you might consider... More

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
