Hiller Aviation Museum

Helicopter pioneer Stanley Hiller Jr. founded the Hiller Aviation Museum with the future in mind, using history to inspire future generations to explore and create. He had firsthand proof of the innovative abilities of youth—his design for the first successful coaxial helicopter landed at age 19.

In the museum he established in 1998, 53,000 square feet of exhibits let visitors of all ages discover more than 40 aircraft without the dangers of encountering them in the wild. A narrated walking tour leads the way through them, tracing the history of flight from its humble beginnings in village jumping contests to today's supersonic jets. Fixed-wing and rotary aircraft designed by Hiller and others rest throughout the huge, bright space, while weekends beckon would-be pilots into a flight simulator equipped with huge monitors of bay views and realistic yokes, throttles, and pedals.

Customer Reviews

Great place for the Aviation Enthusiast!
Rolando G. · April 6, 2013
We had a great experience learning about aviation history and know a few of the state (bay area and surrounding counties) inventors and scientists in the aviation industry. Also I appreciate the staff who still honored our groupon voucher promotional value although it already expired last year. Will definitely recommend this to family and friends.
