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.

We love this place. Any time we are in town on a space a layover, we make sure to stop by. They have beautiful aircraft and our favorite is old shaky outside :)

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

This museum (indoors and out) was wonderful. Very informative, well laid out and friendly volunteers to boot! Donations accepted.

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

The collection of planes outside is amazing, and the exhibits inside the museum are most interesting. Be prepared for a long delay in a waiting room with a blaring TV, though, to get permission granted to access the base. Also, be prepared to provide i.d. and social security number for those in your group. Even with this minor hassle, this... More
