  • It was great. The boys, ages 16 and 42, could have spent the entire day here. There is so much to see. It was great seeing their faces light up with each new find.

  • 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.
  • Great history! Great facility! Very interesting for all ages.
  • Interesting look at the history of aviation including real planes in the parking area.
  • Beyond belief! You've got to see it to believe it. The museum rivals the National Air and Space museum and the Puma Air Museum. It's not just static display aircraft----they've got engine displays that are cutaway to see their interior workings, nuclear weapon casings to include a B62 tactical nuke, rocket engines along with numerous military aviation display items. The gift shop is well stocked and admission is FREE. Good luck getting on base to see it.
