  • Friends who are supporters of the museum invited to give us a tour. An undiscovered gem. The displays are well executed, informative and interesting. Fascinating for aviation and war history buffs.  more »
  • We drove to see this museum while in Novato but didn't realize they closed at 4...we arrived at 4:05---- darn. Maybe next time! Why closed so early in the day?!  more »
  • Hamilton Field was a serious departure point for WWII planes, so this little air field has had a lot of history. The docents who volunteer are filled with information, so try to snag one to go around ...  more »

  • People working (maybe volunteers) were very nice to talk too and were very knowledgeable. Not a big place but quite interesting if you like aviation history.
  • The Hamilton AFB museum was outstanding. Very historical base back in the haydays of. WWII through Vietnam, if you like local history watch the thirty minute video about the base. If you know AFI 36-2903, you will go crazy when you see the uniforms on display (I am going to go back and adjust the displays on my next trip to the Bay Area). Overall, this is a great way to learn about the history of the area.
