  • There is a fair amount of displays for the different eras of the Air Force, including the space program. Admission is free, but you have to be able to get on the base. The gift shop is well stocked. I...  more »

  • a fantastic day of planters peanuts and bananas.
  • Great history! Great facility! Very interesting for all ages.
  • Great place for vintage airplane buffs.The museum itself is inside Travis AFB (an active air force base). To get to the museum, you have to stop at the visitor's center and provide your name, address and SSN (yes, your SSN...) Once admitted, a van/truck will come and pick you up, driving you through the base to the museum. The museum features an indoor display of airplane history, including airplane systems, cockpit, bomb shells, airplane guns, engines of all types, aircraft replicas, and a few complete vintage aircraft. History buffs will spend quite some time reading the displays and appreciating the historic details behind the artifacts. The "plane lot" outside is a blast, and has a number of aircraft most of us will immediately recognize, such a a B-52 bomber, a B-17 bomber, helicopters, and many others. Overall, a good place to bring the kids or just bring the kid in you. Call in advance for times and information.
  • Interesting look at the history of aviation including real planes in the parking area.
  • Great place to visit.
