Great for educational adventures for all ages. Kids enjoyed conversing with docents who were also former pilots, mechanics, or enthusiasts of the diverse aircraft on display.

Amazing history!! Plane from Berlin Blockade another that did three missions into enemy territory on D-Day!! The docents are all former military men who absolutely enjoy showing you around. Worth the trip to McClellan!!

Grab a docent to explain the exhibits. It really adds to the experience. The flight simulator lab upstairs is must do for anyone over 11. Make sure to leave 20-30 minutes to do that

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.
