  • I love this place. They have a great selection of planes, partial planes, and part of a 747. I buy model planes from the gift shop and my son learned to fly drones here. It's located right next to San Carlos Airport so it's a cool setting too.
  • A great place to visit for young and old aviation buffs. Lots of exhibits from vintage to Golden age to jet airplanes to helicopters to r/c drones and helis. Several different flight simulators are available, but make sure you check the times when they are operational.
  • My 3 year old and 1 year old loved it. There are little planes kids are allowed to climb in and play with as well as a building area with large blocks. There is a giant plane in back. If your kids like planes it is awesome. We use discover and​ go and tried visiting for free.
  • Love a museum that has activities for all ages. My three year old grandson loved this place. There are hands-on exhibits. Highly recommend for children on a rainy day. No snack bar. But nearby drive in. Ask about parties.
  • Excellent museum with wonderful displays, is venue for annual san mateo county science fair. Near san carlos airport
