I share an interest in aircraft with my Father, a retired airline pilot and former bomber pilot for Strategic Air Command so when he and I had a chance, we spent some time over at the Lyon Air Museum. As others have mentioned, this is a small museum - basically one hanger off of John Wayne Airport - but the facility is great, the planes are well maintained, and the volunteers friendly and knowledgeable (especially when they find another retired Air Force pilot!). They have several planes my Dad flew as initial trainers so it was a bit of a walk down memory lane and they have a DC3 in American Airlines livery from the 1930's, which he appreciated. The hanger faces the runway and you can see the planes taking off as well!
Parking - no issues, plenty of spaces as it's never crowded
Food - no restaurant but you're right off Bristol so there's places to eat very close by.
Facilities - clean restrooms.
Bring a camera and plan on spending about an hour or so.
My Father and I had a great time!
