  • A terrific look at the airline industry and the people behind it. Highly recommended for anyone interested in civil aviation and the history of LAX. Be sure to go out and go aboard the DC-3 too!
  • What a wonderfull place , the staff were warm and friendly, and the exhibits were amazing . Highly recomended
  • I came here with my family and for anyone who has an interest in aviation this is a must! The staff are so passionate and easy to talk it makes for fun conversations. Many have ex cabin crew, pilots, enthusiasts or airport employees. You can pick up great merchandise here too! Fantastic little place
  • Flight Path Learning Center is a great location to soak in a wide range of aviation history. There is a great deal of commercial aircraft memorabilia, including pins, luggage, suits and uniforms. A slew of models show a wide range of plane and planes types. The center is made of of many rooms, making it a delight to explore each and take your time. They also have a historic DC-3 outside, which you can go inside, sit down in - even in the cockpit! This is a learning center, and to further support that they offer Flight Sim training, with an impressive number of computers to support students. Pro tip - take some cash with you. Although it's free, they do ask for donations. Take some cash so you can give to this great center.
  • One of the best Aviation Museum Unfortunately is almost empty all the time
