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

Surprisingly good. My husband was more excited than me to go and look at planes! I really enjoyed myself. You can actually go inside a couple of them and experience the feeling of the older planes. It really was a good day out and I would highly recommend it. Be mindful of its hot outside, don't forget the hat! Enjoyable!

I had visited the March Museum years ago but I don't remember it anywhere near as good as it was this time. If you haven't been there in a few years, as me, you should go again. The centerpiece of it is the SR71. When I saw it years ago it was outside on the tarmac and had tires that... More

My wife and I spent about a half a day touring and exploring this air museum. If you are a history buff and like aircraft (planes and helicopters) from the recent past back to WW1, you will love visiting this museum. The number and variety of aircraft is excellent and you have some great examples of both piston and jet... More
