“There was quite a lot there”

Aerospace Museum of California
Attraction details
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We've been to many many airplane museums, the whole family are aviation enthusiasts. We went here during an open cockpit day. The docents are all very knowledgeable and alsolutely love their time at the museum. It is a pleasure to talk to them. Do not miss the simulator training upstairs. My son loved it and the docents there are ex pilots and very patient with the training even with the younger kids. There is a great display of quite a few random things and a lot of kid friendly areas for the kids to try things out such as rebuilding engines and such. There are a lot of random planes outside as well. Not a huge place but definitely worth the money and time. Too bad they didn't have some sort of cafe there so that we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful newer museum. I was worried I would get bored just looking at planes, but I actually enjoyed myself. They have a wide range of aircraft, from early flights to more current ones. Lots of jet/rocket engines, clothing, simulators, jeeps etc to keep all ages engaged. Docents know so much about each area, plus big outdoor area to explore with the "bigger" aircraft outside, and some you go inside to look at them. Had lots of picnic tables tables scattered about outside to sit down & rest before you got to the next aircraft. Was very imprssed with their setup, and knowledge of the docent volunteer staff. Kiddie area upstairs, good for the family or just grown-ups. Nice afternoon for a Father's Day treat.

This is a great aviation museum. It has a very nice indoor section, with in-scale and real airplanes, and a large outdoor collection of planes from WWII to today. For certain occasions some of the cockpits are open.
