  • Interesting, spectacular, interactive elements with the flight. A small airport is located behind the Museum, kids can watch the take-off for hours. You can spend the entire day here.

  • My son has been here 3-4 times in the last year. Simple and easy to get to with a wide array of both old and experimental aircraft.  more »
  • The Museum is a very good option to visit for lovers of aviation and its history. to get from SAn Francisco, take subway, train and walk about 30 minutes to arrive, but it is worthwhile. It has a very interesting and diverse collection. Well interactive and didactic. 100% recommended.

  • 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
