I went here with my husband after getting a Groupon. They have some really cool-looking old planes and the tram tour is pretty cool. But, if you don't know much about planes, there's not much appeal. The interior museum is a bit dingy and outdated feeling. I don't think this is a place that I would choose to bring out-of-town... More

It is not pretty but neither is war. Good to see some great planes on display. It was a long time ago I actually was on the grounds but would like to go again someday.

The aviation, space and military history on display is fantastic. They've redone a lot of the exhibits. Walking their flight line givesvyou an up close and personal trip back through military aviation history.

If like military planes and history this a great place to spend 2 - 3 hours. Be sure to check out the SR - 71 blackbird in the main hangar. There are also lots of military planes displayed outside. The museum is right by March Air Force base, which is fairly busy with tankers and cargo planes coming and going.... More

Worth a little drive out to see the planes and the museum as displayed here. It is very well done and we spend half a day meandering through the exhibits and videos and walking around the planes. Way to go March!

There are new planes and many new exhibits since we were here several years ago. they now have an exhibit Room with Air force uniforms and accessories dating back to WWI as well as a room dedicated to the Space program. You can do a self-guided tour or a tram tour with a docent. Some of our favorites are the... More

The Museum is at the March Air Force base, but a US Military ID is not required to enter the Museum. The cost is $10.00 USD, with no discounts offered. The Museum contains a variety of aircraft, the ones at the Vietnam exhibit were especially meaningful to me. Be sure to chat with the person on duty located across from... More

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
