“For aircraft lovers of all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

The March Field Air Museum is a gem in the desert. They have great displays of all kinds and types of aircraft up to and including F-14s and F-15s. They even have an SR-71 Black Bird. There are also a number of smaller separate displays in individual hangars for Tony Levier and the P-38, etc. The gift shop is fairly extensive with souvenirs to suit most all tastes and pocketbooks. For those interested in aircraft of yesterday and today, the March Field Air Museum is a must see attraction.

“It's great if you like planes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I have been here a few times, as its only two miles from my house. The grounds are ugly, but I go to see the planes. The most impressive sight is when you walk through the doors. There is an SR-71 Blackbird sitting in the middle of the hangar. You have to appreciate the sleekness of that bird! Amazing. There is also a miniature Vietnam war memorial on the southeast corner of the property. Humbling

“Family Fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a great place to share our history with your whole family. I took my Grandson nad he took pictures of every plane there and he was only 9 at the time he did it.

“A big piece of Riverside's history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Wonderful display of military planes. Dedicated, knowledgeable volunteer tour guides. Take a tour outside on a tram. Inside well displayed memorabilia from the wars. Last time I visited, I was in charge of a fund raising event. Had a very successful party inside. The employees couldn't have been more accommodating. Their caterer was superb and inexpensive. The museum even supplied the table decorations.
