a peice of history. Every nostalgia buff should devote a pert of a day to visit. Yo don't have to be a fanatic to be moved by the history of our great country and the people who defend it.

What a cool place. One of the very few places in United States that has a SR 71 blackbird. This is just the beginning as you will see several displays of history on the inside of this awesome place. Then the outside has numerous aircraft that you can look at and touch. It's a big wide open place so it's... More

This is a great place to take the kids, lots of cool airplanes, definitely a lot to see. Not the easiest place to get to but well worth the visit.

March Field Air Museum gives you and up close look at our nations Air Force as far back as WWll, and some aircraft in current service. There are numerous aircraft, equipment, active restorations, and displays to keep you interested. There is a guided tram tour that lasts about 45 minutes, but everything else requires walking. Especially going back for a... More

The whole museum is nicely laid out. The self tour allows you to take your time and get up close and see many great details on each plane. You can also watch planes actively using the base. We really enjoyed the outdoor Vietnam Era display.

the March Air Field Museum lets you wander through the decades of air force history. With row upon row of fighter jets, helicopters, and heavy lifting planes, you get to see up close and personal aircraft from America's history. Highlights being, the SR-71.

There is a memorial here for dogs that have served in combat. Despite the nearby freeway noise, you have a moment to reflect on what these dogs and their handlers have gone through for Freedom. Add that to a terrific history of the men and women who have served in the air during war time, including the Cold War. Plus... More

It's a good place to take the kids and let them see old planes. A little history lesson for the whole family.

My daughter took me here on Father's Day for a look around, as I used to fly back in the 80's. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, and I really liked the way you could just get around at your own pace, looking at the detail of real aircraft, not just mock ups. This place also caters for weddings... More
