Great place for kids. They have a place for children to play inside with props and plenty of room outside for exploring. Really entertaining for adults as well looking to have an up close look at a wide range of retired military aircrafts.

Probably only 2nd to Wright-Patterson or Smithsonian Institute. They so many aircraft ready for inspection it fills 4 football fields. Easy on/off parking from I-215 just south of HWY 60 in Riverside County. Quality hotels nearby and views of March AFB and thier tankers and C-17's ready to go.

The museum is comprised of aircraft saved from the scrap heap and memorabilia donated by famous and not so famous donors. A fascinating place to walk around and actually get your hands on in some cases - been in the cockpit of the B-47 used by James Stewart in the movies? Hugged a bomber lately? There are a lot of...

Anyone who enjoys aircraft would enjoy this museum, especially if you are interested in military aircraft. There are indoor exhibits and lots of planes to look at on the outside. I took my son when he was younger and I can't wait to take my grandsons. To me this seems like an especially good place for a boys day out.... More

Sitting adjacent to the March Air Reserve Base (ARB) in Riverside, CA, is a wonderful museum whose recent expansion efforts really payed off. A SR-71 now sits completely inside the main exhibit area and features a ladder positioned next to the aircraft which allows for almost unrestricted viewing ob both cockpits. Adjacent to the SR-71 is a Bell P-59 Airacomet... More

Visited this spot on Veterans Day and I was pleasantly surprised. It's definitely a must visit if you have little ones, plenty of things to keep them busy (at least for a couple of hours). Pros: Inexpensive, clean restrooms, lots of hands on exhibits inside, small video screen that showed space film, boxes of military clothing for kids to play... More

My teenage son has always been interested in history, especially WWII, so I took him by the museum in hopes they might have something related to WWII. Which they did, so he was he happy. Its a small museum but very intereserting and showed a nice history of the airforce, WWI, WWII and aviation history. After enjoying the indoor museum... More
