  • Went with 2 families, including 4 kids ages 7-13. The main building was the backdrop for the Disney movie the Rocketeer and there are many movie relics in there. Plenty to see and grab your attention....  more »
  • This small museum has quite a bit of history to show. With full size planes and lots of models. Aviation history started with Capt. Alan Hancock and the role Santa Maria played in training WWII pilots...  more »
  • The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure all questions were answered. The museum is has a lot of model and real replica aircrafts. A few hollywood movies have made use of these...  more »

  • Great place to spend some time and admire some aviation history and hear interesting stories from the staff.
  • very sad it's obvious they have no funding to care for the materials they have and their volunteers don't know how to maintain a museum.
  • This museum is amazing would come back!!
  • Both times I went it was closed at 3Pm when it says it closes at 4pm
  • I'm not sure what the other reviewers saw? The docents were very rude and their proudest accomplishment was that Disney once shot a 2 star movie there. Even the airport management dislikes the way this museum is run.
