This museum contains a bit of our nation's history---many planes, helicopters and most important of all, a jet that was actually a part of the 9/11 attacks. I was lucky enough to attend the dedication ceremony on the 2011 anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It was a very heartfelt and emotional ceremony. I felt honored to be there and encourage you to visit this museum to see not only the historical jet, but the other fascinating exhibits permanently housed there. There is also a cute little gift shop available. The best thing is that you can actually walk amongst the huge planes and touch them, get in some and experience it all on a more personal level. Support the efforts of those who serve our country.

This little museum is a gem. There are so many planes to view and if you can make the air show, it's even better

Hubby had this on his wish list, and I have to admit it was interesting. Lots of aircraft on display out near the airport, mostly military - some real history to be seen.

It was a great little museum, with over twenty planes and helicopters. Almost every plane had a sign describing what the plane was, when it was used, how fast it could go, and what not. Overall it was definitely worth the five bucks to get in and walk around.

If you are staying in or near Guerneville and like aircrafts then you must go here! It's near Santa Rosa (by Sonoma County Airport on Becker Boulevard) and only takes 20 minutes by car to get here. It's a small but perfectly formed museum with very interesting exhibits regarding WW2 and the part that the local airport played. There are also exhibits regarding local pilots and relating to the general bay area. The main exhibits are outside at the back. It is entirely run by dedicated volunteers who restore old aircrafts and they were happy to answer my husband's numerous questions.

Highlights were the Sabre (my husband practically went into a fit of ecstacy when he saw it!) and the fact that it only costs $5 to get in. Unfortunately it is only open on Tues, Thurs, Sat and Sun and we also just missed their annual airshow by 3 days.

It's a great place to spend an hour with the family (children can enter for free) or just to chat to one of the friendly volunteers to brush up on your aircraft knowledge.
