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.

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

As the new bride of a retired Master sergeant who served 27 years in the Airforce, visits to the museum was a must see... So much to take in and appreciate, giving thanks to all who had served and are currently serving to date ... A great place to visit!

This air museum is located on Travis Air Force Base. It is an outstanding opportunity to visit a number of very interesting memoribilia and static airplane exhibits. And, it is free! The only drawback is that the museum is located on a military base which requires an extensive amount of background information on every member in your party to get... More

This is really amazing place. If you love NASA Kennedy space center, Air force base in Houston and so on-this should not be missed

This is a great museum, and a hidden gem. We spent a few hours there and really enjoyed the experience. It is a free activity and the volunteers were very helpful. We enjoyed watching the restoration work being done on some of the aircraft. The museum is well done, with displays and information from World War I to the present.... More
