So much to view!

It was great. The boys, ages 16 and 42, could have spent the entire day here. There is so much to see. It was great seeing their faces light up with each new find.

Free day activity. You have to go to the visitors center and fill out a background tour and then someone drives you onto the base and you get to see lots of old air force planes including a old air force one plane. Inside the museum there is lots of memorabilia and smaller air force planes. There is even a... More

Great presentation and many tributes to the men and women of the last few wars. Airplanes and real life size cockpits, bombs and stories!

Our visit started with a 45 minute wait at the front gate to get on base. As the clerk so clearly stared, I had "no priority" as a civilian visitor with a family to see the air museum even though I too am a combat veteran. Once cleared by the gate, we then we picked up and taken on a... More

Travis is the last sight that many of our great military personnel saw before going to battle or off to experience a new assignment overseas. This is one of the busiest military locations in the world. There were thousands of people and freight loads that have passed thru this location. Located half way between San Francisco and Sacramento Calif. it... More

The name change reflects the change that is happening at this and other USAF Museums. Unfortunately, the Air Force is changing their museums at air bases from a general history of the AF to the history of each base. Although this can be a good thing, many of these museums are losing their mix of aircraft and displays and having... More

We visited this over the kids presidents break from school so it wasn't crowded which was great. Our son said this was the best museum he has ever visited and he is 11, and doesn't particularly care to visit museums,... More

The Air museum at Travis AFB is an amazing day to spend with the family learning about air history with a hands on approach. Excellently maintained aircraft for exploring by young and old. Knowledgeable volunteers to answer questions- many who served in the services.

Excellent outdoor display of many different airplanes. Our grandson was fascinated and excited to see all the Airforce planes from WWII, Korea and Vietnam areas. Each plane was identified and described

Interesting museum inside an active Air Force base. Some of the planes you don't see anywhere in Northern California such as: C-124, C-133 and the newly restored C-7 Caribou in SE Asia camouflage. It would be nice if the C-5B cockpit simulator is powered on other than just sit there. I also like the many airplane models and dioramas on... More
