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.

While staying for a week at a time-share resort in Oxnard, we tried to get lost finding a restaurant recommended by the resort manager. We eventually found the "Way Point Café" at the Camarillo Airport and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. While there, I realized the WWII Aviation Museum was only a stones-throw away, so we stopped to check it out.... More

This morning, I drove to Camarillo to visit the WWII Aviation Museum in Camarillo. Aside of a nice assortment of vintage military aircraft, weapons and other interesting memorabilia, I was lucky enough to catch the "Executive Suite" (a WWII B-25) as it was warming up, then taxiing and finally taking off. Free parking and admission (donations accepted). It's fun for... More

This place is recommended for people who are into planes and war history. I got interested in war planes when my friend dragged me to an air show in Camarillo years ago. They have old planes that are actually working, some I am not sure if they are working but are on display during the show and you could step... More

For what it, is a terrific place to visit and take the family. Kick the tires of some venerable WW2 planes and if you have time and the money (it may be deductible ) take a ride I am sure one of the very experienced and helpful docents would be happy to help then go next door to the Wayside...
