My husband is an aircraft mechanic in the Marines and so he LOVES aviation history. There are so many planes to look at here and so much historical information. They even have a lunch deal at the little stand outside, hot dog, soft drink, and chips for $4! Only downfalls are military have to pay to get in (unless they are in uniform, which my husband isn't allowed to wear his uniform out in town so this wouldn't apply) and not every plane out on the flight line has a plaque that tells you what it is and something about it. I think they should at least offer a military discounted admission, or just let them in for free.

Great facility and location to share with your kids the history of aviation and those involved in flight. The planes and artifacts are second to none and really takes you back to the era of the early days of flight. It really provides kids and students a hands on approach to WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Cold War area.

This museum is no Chino, but airplane nuts like me will like March. They have a good collection thats worth seeing and although the indoors portion is a little ratty its still full of interesting aviation history. Its well worth spending some time there. They also have a static, all fiberglass P-38 that is pretty neat, and they also have several live fire target drones (mostly Su-25's a Hind 'D' gyrocopter or two, an A-7 Corsair, and a couple of others) from the company I used to work for hanging on one of the hangar walls that I was surprised to see (I didnt paint them, btw, I would have fired whoever did!) I could tell you some stories about flying those targets out at Ft. Irwin).
Go and check it out. Its worth going.

The museum has something to offer people of all ages. It has exploring and climbing for the kids. Historical memorabilia and many Kodak moment opportunities. Starting with the entrance with the Flag and the memorial bricks and benches, to the gift shop, through the museum and then the many static aircraft makes for a pleasant and enlightening afternoon. Don't forget the donation box...

We only had 45 minutes before this museim closed so we ran around snapping pictures of the amazing aircraft collection here. The staff was nice giving us a few extra minutes before closing up. This place is definitely worth a visit if you are an airplane junkie like myself. We are from Arizona and traveled all the way to here just to see this place. We enjoyed it and will return. It was well worth an 800 mile round trip and we will do it again.
