  • This is a hidden gem in the east bay, close to Oakland International Airport. Friendly staff and free parking. You can enjoy a leisurely visit of historic aviators and aircraft. There are a variety of aircraft in a hanger and more aircraft outside including the Silent flying boat. The last one in existence. I highly recommend the weekend tour of the flying boat. Dale the docent is terrific, so knowledgeable about the flying boat and the history of this craft. Have a great visit and learn about aviation history.
  • This is a great air museum with lots of actual civilian & military planes and exhibits about early flight pioneers and other contributors to the history of flight. Some really nice exhibits about African-American pilots (first black female pilot, Tuskegee Airmen of WWII, & more) and female pilots of air and space. This is a very family-friendly museum with several planes for kids to sit in. Lots of things that kids can see and touch up close. At certain times, you can enter the cockpits, although when we went, there were no cockpit times. You can even book the museum for weddings and other events. It's great to see the different larger planes outside to get a perspective of the size and scale as they are sitting near each other. Even the staff and tour guides have a great passion for planes. If you love planes, you'll like this museum.
  • A great look into local aviation history. Open cockpit day is humming!
  • Good for children who love planes. But beware you cannot touch most planes. Tough for toddlers.
  • Very interesting great history and impressive collection of planes
