  • 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.
  • 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
  • This a great place for kids of all ages. They have a great set of hands on displays (because who wouldn't want to fly a flight simulator or a drone?!) and really cool aircraft (I loved the giant seaplane and fighter jet!). The coolest part for me was being able to hop in the cockpit of a real 747 and flip all the switches! I could have sat there for hours. And it's location can't be beat, right off the 101 freeway. There is also a stand where you can watch the real planes at San Carlos Airport take off and taxi a few hundred feet from you!
