Climb aboard aircraft like you have seen in the movies and on TV. This is a great facility where you get a hands on experience of aircraft throughout history, There's also a little souvenir store to take home some memories. Staffed by dedicated volunteers I might add.

This is a great museum for kids and adults who are interested in classic planes. It's right next door from the Sonoma County Airport (STS) in Santa Rosa.

Its really worth the effort of driving out of Santa Rosa to find this small but interesting collection of mainly military aircraft. The staff, apparently all volunteers, are so enthusiastic and helpful and have lots of interesting tales to relate. The aircraft display is mostly outdoors so go on a sunny day and enjoy a little piece of history

Lots of static displays of aircraft. Basically you get to walk around the airplanes. It would be nice if they could have an opportunity to get into the cockpits of the planes.

I'm not an aviation fan but my son is. He LOVED this place (lots of cool real planes to see) and the volunteers that run this (many former military retired folks) really do know what they are talking about. I was surprised by how much more there was to do and learn about than I initially thought. Children and aviation... More

The museum is self-guided but a must altenrative to winery visits if you are at all interested in aviation history. The staff is friendly. There is a $6 entrance fee but I felt it was going to great use in supporting this local piece of Sonoma aviation history. Little did I know that the airport was a WWII training airfield.

Not necessarily the widest range of planes you'll ever see - lots of 50s & 60s jets; but you can get really close to the planes. Staff are amazingly helpful and passionate about aviation. A must see if you're in the area and a refreshing change from clinical, commercial museums. This is the real thing!

The museum's offerings are far greater than expected for its location. Best to combine a visit while attending the annual not-to-be-missed air show in August. Exhibits now include one of the 9/11 jet responders.

This is a small museum near the Sonoma County Airport and all of the aircraft can be seen without paying through the fence. There are interesting aircraft and helicopters, most are jets from 1956+ with the bulk from the 60's. If you pay, there is a small indoor area where the history of area during WW2 and after. You cannot... More

Hot Dog Thursday at the Pacific Coast Air Museum is the best lunch deal in town - still only $5 and includes admission.
