“small but enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a small aviation museum located near the Oakland airport. It has a lot to offer ranging from early 20th century aircraft to the modern. I especially liked the area about Transocean Airlines and its connection with the Oakland airport and other airlines around the world. This is a nice place for aviation enthusiast to spend an hour or two.

“The Tomcat was a Hit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Not a big place but a good cross-section of aircraft from military to personal, early aviation to recent. My sons (teen/tween) got a real kick out of the Tomcat. They were opening up a plane for a tour so we got to go inside a midsized plane formerly used by a general. We were there on a weekday so there was hardly anyone there which made for good photo ops and we saw it all in about 90 minutes. Was worth the trip.

“wonderful old aircraft on display”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

It is a small museum, but a lot of displays with interesting historical information and photos. There's even a child sized airplane replica of a fighter plane, and our 2 year oldgrandson was so tickled to be able to climb in it and "drive"
