If you served in the Air Force in the last 75 years this place is a must. Great static displays, a for real SR71 that you can look in the cockpit, and interactive stuff for kids. As previously mentioned, time your visit for cooler months or early morning-the flight line gets hot.

This was a great place to see and learn about military history. The kids loved the hands on airplane models, and the interactive stuff indoor and out. I don't recommend going on a very hot day because most stuff is outdoors. There is a lot of walking outside to see all the awesome planes. You can purchase snacks there and... More

Good information in the hangars and on the plaques. Well worth the visit. It gets very hot out there so bring water.

I took three grandchildren (K, 1st and 2nd) to the March Field Air Museum with fear and trepidation. Wrong! They LOVED it and asked to return again the next day! They had plenty of hands on experiences and dressing up in military uniforms was a HUGE hit! We will make this an annual visit and foster their new interest in... More

Great museum that shows military aircraft spanning many decades. The majority are outside and only a few are inside the hangers. It's about a 2 mile walk to see all outdoor planes. And we were very lucky because the C-17 was practicing "touch and goes" next door at March Air Force Base and you can sit on the bleachers and... More

If like military planes and history, this is the place to go. You can spend hours walking around and reading up the history.

I took my family to the air museum after driving past it countless times and we weren't disappointed. The staff is so friendly and had so much information about the different aircraft and exhibits. It is an inexpensive time for the whole family.

This is the best place in Riverside and I suggest everyone who travels here should visit this air museum. The place is large and there are kinds of aircrafts, specially famous airplanes in World War II. Good place to visit.

Have visited here before many years ago, and they have expanded their displays in a nice way. Everything is now spread out and the displays inside are very neat and informative with the space at least doubling. Outdoor displays are all labeled, and if you're lucky, you might see active duty folks doing touch and goes across the field. Nice... More
