Excellent outdoor display of many different airplanes. Our grandson was fascinated and excited to see all the Airforce planes from WWII, Korea and Vietnam areas. Each plane was identified and described

Interesting museum inside an active Air Force base. Some of the planes you don't see anywhere in Northern California such as: C-124, C-133 and the newly restored C-7 Caribou in SE Asia camouflage. It would be nice if the C-5B cockpit simulator is powered on other than just sit there. I also like the many airplane models and dioramas on... More

Military history buffs will enjoy the many aircraft and displays. The volunteers really put their heart into the displays and want to share their wartime experiences with those willing to listen

Hubs (Vietnam era vet) & I arrived on Saturday. After going through the gate and directed back to visitor center, we walked up to view a hand printed Closed sign. {sigh} this had been our second attempt to visit Travis. There won't be a third.

I love the museum. As a retired AF aviator, I love walking their ramp among the many vintage warbirds they have so faithfully restored. The exhibit hall is also fascinating, with new little gems coming to my attention every time I stop by the museum.

Fun little stop while I was in the area. Being a veteran it is always a good experience to see the history and compare what I've seen to that of those before me.

When we researched a visit to the venue it came up as number one on trip advisor , although we have no links with airforce, ( we are an army linked family !! ) we thought it would be an interesting thing to do. We were aware that there was a security procedure to be undertaken and fully understand the... More

I found this museum on the net whilst planning my recent trip to California. Looking at their web page I could see that it is actually located on a working base and to be on the safe side I emailed the museum to enquire if I, as a UK citizen, would be allowed in. I received a prompt reply from... More

This museum has something for everyone. We took 4 grandsons, ages 3-9, and they LOVED it. There are cockpits they can get into and feel like they are flying, a Mercury capsule replica they can also sit in and raise up and down, as well as displays of interest. Outside there are LOTS of planes, and the boys were really... More
