We take the kids here all the time. A great time and lots of learning for everyone for a nominal fee. Good for adults and kids. Great simulation room for the kids to knock themselves out.

Great museum to visit for any airplane fan, lots of models, you can actually seat in the pilots cockpit of some planes, including airliners and jet fighters.

I have travled up-and-down Hiway 101 for a lot of years and seen the signs for Hiller and never have stopped. I am sorry I didn't do it years ago. It's a fun place to take your family, friends and out-of-town guests to learn about the history of aviation in the Bay Area! My husband who is a private pilot loved it as well.

Perhaps I'd set my expectations too high, but although this place was interesting, it just didn't "wow" me like I thought it would. The kids enjoyed it & there are some nice things to do.

This place is interesting for kids as young as 5 but will also be interesting up through adults. There is a interactive area to use also.
