Museum Of Flying Reviews & Ratings
It's under new management and man have they turned the place around! Every time I go there, the staff is friendly and courteous and there is new stuff to see. Just yesterday they held their first aviation Expo and they had a TON of cool stuff. I will definitely be returning.
Very interesting visit, mainly thanks to a very welcoming staff who went out of his way to tell us about the planes and the history of aviation in California. Don't miss the 727 cockpit with amazing comments and details given by a lovely woman pilot. And don't miss the staff member who lives nearby, he'll tell you amazing stories !
I really enjoyed my time here! They were just beginning to set up for a private event when we got here, but the staff went out of their way to show us around and filled us in on a lot of the history behind the exhibits at the museum. I would definitely recommend coming here and talking to the staff if you have a chance.
This is such a fun museum with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. A perfect place for kids of all sizes remotely interested in airplanes, and or local history.
Great place to learn about Aviation, staff are really friendly and they have a flight simulator (would be nice if it lasted a bit longer) other than that great place.
