  • What this is not: a war bird museum like most. Hiller was a pioneer in vertical flight and much of the display is dedicated to that. The only outside static display is the nose section of an old 747. ...  more »
  • Fly in directions are wrong. You can no longer park in the northwest transient parking area, it is for helicopters only. You must park on the other side of the runway at the GA terminal. It is a short walk with sidewalk to the museum. I advised the museum to update their website months ago but it still has no happened. I have been to aviation museums all over the world, this one is worth a visit.
  • Informative and fun! We visited on the aviation day of San Carlos airport, be sure the check this event out. Good place for both kids and adults who share interest in aviation and engineering or history. There is a big gift shop as well.
  • Had a great time today at the museum. George, our tour docent was very informative. Thank you Willie Turner
  • At October fest last nite, we felt like we were in the DARK. Tables by the looong lines at the food truck were in the dark by evening. Many people had a long wait with only one truck &a hot dog stand to serve the crowd. The lights were turned off in areas twice. If your having it at nite-- leave ALL LIGHTS ON! GOOD FOOD FROM THE LITTLE RED RIDING TRUCK. JULIE
  • Very interesting place to visit for aviation enthusiasts. Has a gift shop where we can buy cool stuff.
