Great place to learn about military aircraft. If you have a question, wonderful volunteers are close by to answer. Today, we climbed inside a huge radar plane, a Fed Ex plane and a Green Giant! Lots of fun!

Kids love to enter the planes. It'd be nice to enter more planes, but some were closed. Kids loved it and there is a nice playground nearby.

Cool place to visit and see alot of different types of air craft. There are alot of retired veterans there as well volunteering and has in depth knowledge of the planes. We brought our 4-6 year old and they thought it was neat to see the planes but arent really old enough to understand the info about them. There is a wonderful playground right next door with a rocketship theme.

Go on a day when it's not raining so you can enjoy the planes outside.

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.
