We went to March AFB for a car show on the grounds. We ended up walking the museum grounds for a few hours. We got to see up close a number of vintage aircraft we had never seen in person before. B-17, 29 and 52 bombers. KC-97, SR-71, Nigs and Phantoms. LOTS of planes that you can walk around and... More

Most of the planes are outside and there is a concrete walkway that allows wheelchair access to view most of the aircraft up close. Jet engine row is great, with a cut-away view of one engine. All planes have an information plaque in front of them. Inside the main hanger there's a lot of different exhibits, Military uniforms from different... More

The number of planes at The March Field Air Museum is amazing. Aircraft and other military items from the last 100+ years. The main hanger has some very well presented displays and mockups of plane interiors and when you walk out to the outside displays, the diversity of planes is almost overwhelming. It is worth multiple visits if you can... More

I have seen many museums and this is a very good one, a variety of aircraft that doesn't just focus on one era or military service. Great family experience

March field was one the air field General Robin Old (WW2 Ace and Viet Nam Ace) flew out of in the 1950's after WW2, and married Ella Raines, the movie star. They have a wonderful SR-71 Blackbird to design of the great Kelly Johnson. A great collection of WW2 flight jackets. Also a lot of exhibits you can interact with.... More

Planes, and a lot of them. What more could I ask for? The volunteers obviously put a lot of work into this place, and old air wingers like me appreciate it!

Living here all these years and this was my first visit. The planes are original from all over the world. The guides know about the planes from personal experience much of the time. It was quite hot but there was a tour vehicle there with a knowledgable and energetic guide. Even my 11 year old travel partner enjoyed the whole... More

Very enjoyable outing with a great staff on board to answer questions and chat with. It was quite warm and stuffy in the main hangar on a not so hot day, so that kind of took away from the enjoyment of taking in all the displays. But just having my favorite aircraft of all time (SR71) was enough for me... More

Been wanting to visit this place since I heard about it and it was everything it said it was and more! The inside of the building housed very cool artifacts from every facet of flight. WW1 gear, WW2 uniforms, medals, equipment, all the way up to the recent conflicts. Outside was the best collection of military aircraft assembled. Lots of... More
