  • The Commemorative Air force Museum is definitely one of the more exciting Passport 2 History participants! Full disclosure: the real meat of this museum are the planes outside. They have a bunch of cool ones, and you're right out on the runway of the airport, so there are actual real planes taking off and landing all the time, which is cool. The coolest part is that there are two planes and a helicopter that you can go into! My toddler loved it! He (literally) didn't want to leave each one to see the next. It was kind of a problem actually... But eventually after our guided tour, we were left to go at our own pace, so we literally went and sat in each of those planes and helicopter again for quite some time as my son for to push all the buttons and "steer". This is definitely a great place to check out and take your toddler. It is a $10 suggested donation for adults, which while I understand it, felt a bit pricey as you're not going to be here too long. Not so much for going once... but this is the type of place I'd love to visit again and again with my toddler just for a half hour of sitting in the plane, and I wouldn't be able to afford that. The museum part is okay, but fairly small. It's definitely an afterthought to the planes. If you're traveling from LA, there are a TON of places to see not far from here... so you could make a day or it. Check out The Western Foundation of Vertebrae Zoology, The Pleasant Valley Historical Society Museum and Botanical Gardens, The Antique Mall of Camarillo to name a few...
  • Hugh is an awesome, knowledgeable veteran volunteer. He taught me several things I didn't know. Very happy I stopped in. Hope to fly here one day.
  • The people here are amazing! They are all passionate about aviation but even more they are welcoming and fun. I went on a P-51 ride and everyone there went out of their way to make sure my family and I had fun and enjoyed the day...which we did. The effort was more than I could have imagined. Thank you.
  • The volunteers and members here have a passion for the history and legacy of American aviation. It's broken down into the museum and the maintenance hangars; The museum side having exhibits for uniforms of the time period, developments throughout the war such as weapons and technology, an extensive archive, and polished, airworthy warbirds poised together. The maintenance side is not typically open to guests but can be glanced into, where you can see the crews hard at work preparing the aircraft for flight.
  • Visited on a Wednesday afternoon. Had the place basically to myself and my excellent tour guide Charlie. Spent well over an hour learning and seeing and exploring the place. Highly recommend a visit.
