  • Very family friendly, informative, conveniently located , easily navigated aviation museum, with co-located free parking. Close to Oakland airport, its outdoor spaces, with benches and a picnic table, allow for watching OAK airport departures. Includes children's play area with mock air traffic control tower at entrance. Aircraft on display include civilian and military planes, with Top Gun fans favorite fighter jet, an F-14 'Tomcat.' Among the various indoor educational experiences are exhibits on African Americans in Aviation, with dedications to the Tuskegee Airmen; Women in Aviation, emphasizing the 99ers, and aviatrix pioneers Amelia Earhart and Bessie Coleman; and Doolittle's Raiders/WWII. There is an entrance fee, and a small gift shop, with fun and interesting aviation related items for purchase. We visited on a Sunday morning, and a group of local model railroad enthusiasts were setting up a model train display in the theatre area. Venue is available for event rentals. We brought a family membership after seeing it on Groupon; very affordable.
  • Fair price, cool stuff in there. If you live near here, it is worth to visit.
  • Wanted to go to a museum and after a quick search stumbled upon the Oakland Aviation Museum. Upon entering we were greeted immediately by a friendly face and was given a quick overview of what we were going to find. After walking in and getting the rules we found many old planes with information in front of them. There are also old engines, helicopters, and military planes. If you don't read the plaques and information you'll get through this one pretty quickly. Personally, I like to read everything so it took me a bit longer. Sure the planes, parts, models, and other things are really cool but let me tell you about the gem in this place. His name is Dale. I don't want to give it all away, but Dale knows his stuff. I had a question about the Skywarrior and not only did he answer it for me, he started to tell me more stories and just showed me things and pointed out other things that I merely glanced over. The man is full of knowledge and I really enjoyed talking with him and listening to what he had to say. For those who want to get into the planes they do have a open cockpit days which are listed on their website. You can bet I'll be back for that! I went for the planes and left with so much more.
  • Friendly, helpful staff...beautiful, rare aircraft...lots of history...
  • Wow. Very interesting collection. Well presented. Friendly, committed staff. Plan to spend a few hours to explore. Do the tour of the flying boat.
