During WWII, Minter Field was transformed from a small guard unit into the largest basic-training facility of its type on the West Coast. The base taught nearly 12,000 airmen to fly BT-13s, UC-78s, AT-6s, P-38s, and B-25s, and it had a contingent of as many as 17 women who flew as test pilots.

The museum honoring Minter Field is located in the original fire station built on the property in 1941. It showcases photographs of the men and women who were stationed at Minter Field during the war, as well as various military artifacts from the Spanish-American war in 1898 to the present. Visitors can see military uniforms and radio equipment or marvel at the museum’s six vintage planes, Vietnam-era helicopter, and vintage military vehicles, all contained in the museum’s hangar and garage.

Don’t Miss: the museum’s centerpiece—a fully restored BT-13 trainer that was used at Minter Field during the war.
