“An interesting museum of aviation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“These People Really Know Their Aviation Stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 enthusiasts would enjoy this place.

“Up close with legendary fighter jets and helos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

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.

“The friendliest air museum - ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

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!

“Aviation treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.
