During hot weather, view the outside exhibits first and then enjoy the AC indoors with the rest of the visit.

Its an amazing place. Great for the kids. They have a nice grass area with a jungle gym so if you have kids I would highly recommend staying for a picnic.

A lot of fun for plane enthusiasts. We had our 9 year old and 4 year old with us and they enjoyed themselves. Not really any activities etc. just a plane hanger where you get to look at planes and read about them. There's a couple of planes that you can go into and check out. We spent about 2 hours there.

Take a picnic and spend the day! (you can come & go on the same day visit) There is a beautiful park right next door. Go early ( to beat the heat)enjoy the outdoor planes & helicopters. Then enjoy the air conditioned indoor exhibits. They always have some planes open for you to explore. Good for all ages!

Great place for kids to learn about planes and see them up close. In the summer - definitely go outside first into the planes as it gets pretty toasty in the afternoon.

From Our Editors

A pilot sinks into her cockpit, buckles up, checks the controls, and gets ready for takeoff. The engine hums to life and soon the ground rolls beneath her, until she lifts away and the buildings nearby shrink to the size of dust motes. But there's something unusual with the scene: the pilot isn't old enough to see a PG-13 movie let alone pilot an aircraft. That's because the Aerospace Museum of California doesn't let age become a barrier to flight. Children of all sizes climb into airplanes, pilot virtual jets in simulators, and experiment with the physics of flight while adults do the same, exploring the history of aviation both on Earth and beyond.

More than 37,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibits chronicle everything from the very first airplanes made of cloth and wood to futuristic Mars-destined craft made of space-wood. Some of the museum’s prize possessions include the McDonnell-Douglas A-4C Skyhawk I, better known as one of the Blue Angels’ stunt rides, and the Grumman F-14D Tomcat, just like the one co-starring in the 1986 film Top Gun. The Fun with Physics exhibit hammers home the idea of hands-on learning, letting young engineers play with simple machines, whereas the engine room dishes up eye-candy for motorheads, including specimens from 1910’s Le Rhone to the marvels that propelled the Titan rockets.
