Planes of Fame Air Museum was simply dubbed “The Air Museum” when it was founded in 1957—as the only museum of its kind west of the Mississippi, it had no need for a more specific moniker. More than 50 years later, it now boasts a stock of more than 150 airplanes and displays, including many aircraft that are the only flying examples of their type in the world including the N9MB Flying Wing and the P 26 Pea Shooter. Patrons can also explore an array of exhibits and aircraft that trace aviation’s history from the Chanute Hang Glider in 1896 to sophisticated modern-day planes.

Q&A with the PR And Marketing Staff

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

[We have the] largest collection of German Mettlach Ware (1850?1915), including plates and steins on permanent display [with] over 3,000 pieces in our collection. Also, our building was previously a bank so there are hidden vaults displaying smaller ceramic exhibits. We have all-ages classes in our ceramic studio and kiln-firing services available. AMOCA also has a growing library of books and periodicals dedicated entirely to ceramics.

It?s not every day that you can witness 30 million dollars all in one room. But at Marconi Automotive Museum & Special Events Venue, visitors move through an extensive array of rare roadsters, muscle cars, and Formula cars valued at eight figures. After a successful, self-made career in business, founder Dick Marconi decided to give back, donating his personal collection of automobiles to create the museum. Each specimen reflects a piece of racing lore; you'll find historic racecars piloted by Keke Rosberg, Mario Andretti, and Michael Schumacher.

The museum serves a multi-purpose?to share Marconi?s glittering display of high-performance vehicles with the public, and to support local charities. Proceeds from admissions and special events at the museum go toward the Marconi Foundation for Kids, which supports Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, among other children's groups. The museum?s yearly Fight Night fundraising event draws stars such as Oscar de la Hoya and the dashboard hula dancer.

Easily recognizable by the 10-story black cube that looks more like a crashed alien spaceship than a source of clean energy, the museum has been using science-based exhibits to educate and inspire its young visitors for more than 15 years, with a rotating cast of hands-on, interactive exhibits, including MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.

  • Size: two floors of interactive exhibits spread across 59,000 square feet
  • Eye-Catcher: 10-story black cube that towers over the freeway
  • Hands-On Experiments: feel the force of hurricane winds or a rocket launch, play hockey against a virtual goalie in the Science of Hockey, explore inside a two-story tall dinosaur and go on a prehistoric adventure in Dino Quest, become a green superhero at the Eco Challenge, and push your face into a giant pin wall
  • Permanent Mainstay: trigger a simulated rocket launch inside the giant cube while standing beneath a real rocket engine
  • Visiting Exhibits: Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition, where live demos and hands-on experiments put popular myths to the test, and WEEBLES Coast to Coast, which lets kids explore American state-by-state in a hands-on manner
  • Don't Miss: Eco Challenge?where kids join the Eco Crew in interactive games and challenges to learn how to shop smart and recycle
  • Special Events: Overnight Explorers, where kids wander the museum and watch science movies before camping out in sleeping bags

The colorful B-17 Flying Fortress known as Fuddy Duddy once shepherded General Dwight D. Eisenhower across the Pacific near the end of World War II. Today, the massive plane is on display at the Lyon Air Museum on the west side of Orange County's John Wayne Airport. The museum has a curated selection of authentic aircraft and rare vehicles, most of which trace their lineage back to World War II. A 1939 Mercedes-Benz G4 Offener Touring Wagon was actually owned and used by Adolph Hitler until its seizure by the French army at Bertschesgaden. Museum tours are led by volunteer docents throughout the day and last about an hour; along with the planes and cars, you'll encounter Jeeps, motorcycles, and a 1941 Dodge pickup truck.

Orange County Museum of Art's chief curator, Dan Cameron, takes pride in the artists his state has produced from the 20th century to the present. He and his staff showcase a diverse range of modern and contemporary Californian artists as well as art from around the world in an array of exhibitions and a permanent collection. Each exhibition uncovers a different facet of the art world. Past exhibitions have explored modern art between Picasso and Pollock, the changing language of art and design in the mid-20th century, and works by Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol.

Staffers also immerse visitors in their collections through after-hours events and guided tours of the museum's galleries. They also host events for families, during which kids can make artwork in the style of the exhibited artists or attend monthly shows with short films, music exploration, and live entertainment.
