My wife and I had planned a weekend getaway to the Mission Inn. Both of us had known about the March Air Museum but had never been there before. It was hot as heck outside but comfortable inside. We opted for the tram ride around the outdoor aircraft which was a great choice given the heat. Our tour guide was... More

So many great planes on display. From B-17 to the might B-52 and all in between. While the obvious focus is on etch different American fighters and bombers, there were also some good examples of Migs. They had a really nice Vietnam display too. The highlight for me was being able to stand next to the B-17, B-29 and the... More

If you need to know anything about history of March Air Force Base and the Strategic Air Command, this museum is well worth the visit and most important don't forget the camera!

My expectations were high because of the other reviews here. I took my Grandson and even a 14 year old was not too excited. It is a nice museum and airfield, but just average.

This quaint museum was minimalist on flash but full of substance. Great history and layout, but the stars are the planes. There are two inside hangars with planes and historical displays, and then there are maybe 50 more planes out back (with restorations still taking place). You do not have to be an aviation expert to enjoy this. Interactive displays... More

If you want to see aircraft, then stop in and check out this museum. They have a large selection of aircraft, mostly jets, but not just US. They have a nice variety of Migs. A nice feature is that you can walk right up to the jets and check them out. It's probably smarter to go on a nice fall... More

My buddy and I spent 3 hours total with about 45 minutes inside and the balance outside. Bring the kids. Bring sunglasses and a hat too. So many airplanes! A few helicopters too. The tour is self guided with placards to tell you about what you are seeing. So much history wrapped up with these jets/planes. Excellent gift shop! Recommendations... More

I am always impressed by the people who serve our country!! I love how the museum pays homage to our military, its personnel and aircraft. I recently attended a "Welcome Home" event for Vietnam Veterans. It was designed to honor our service members and the event was first rate!! Everyone American should take the time to see this place.
