Family and I stopped by from seeing the signs on the freeway. It has a pretty nice display of articles and artifacts along with some pretty nice planes on display. You would never know this place existed if you didn't catch a glimpse of the signs in the city. Very knowledgeable docents that will take you inside some of the... More

Tour guide kept it interesting even for young children in our group. Children under 6 are free. Walking on board one of the big airplanes was fun for the children. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

If you enjoy American History you need to stop and visit this museum. There something about just being near one of this beasts to get you into the feeling of what it must have been like. I'm not a pilot but love flying, take off, landing, but it was very different then compared to now. You'll get a greater appreciation... More

Wonderful effort to maintain history. The Zero has an amazing story. The August airshow is worth it! I live in Camarillo and enjoy the show.

A group of dedicate men and women who recondition and fly planes which span the history of military aircraft. Regular events highlight weekends and some of their planes are shared with other historical locations since they do all fly.

My husband wanted to see the planes since he was in the Air Force. I didn't care one way or another, but I can say it was interesting even for someone like me

I took my 16 year old son here on a random father son day and really enjoyed our visit. This museum has a tour guide that takes you around to the various wwII planes. The suggested "donation" was $10 per adult. We had James as our tour guide, he was very well informed, had a really good attitude and seemed... More

I was very exited to see the last flying B-29 up close and even more to be able to get inside it. I only had the opportunity to go see it on a Saturday because of my work schedule. The plane was being used to give flight tours until 1 PM and was scheduled to be open for walk through... More
