So much history in a small building. I have lived in Santa Clara for 40 years and have passed Hangar One numerous times but even knew this museum existed right next to it. I took my 13yo and 7yo and both had a great time. So many artifacts and stories. The volunteers there were also wonderful answering all our questions. We went on a Saturday and it didn't feel crowded at all. My 7yo especially loved the train room. We would def go again!

Very knowledgeable and friendly veteran staff/ volunteers kind and passionate enough to spend time and share their stories with visitors. Very jam-packed and a must-see in the area. Took about 2 hours to see everything on display. Make sure you check out the outdoor exhibits as well!

What an unexpectedly good museum. The staff and docents were so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. If you've ever wondered about the gigantic hangar at Moffett Field this is the place to find out exactly what it was and is used for.

I’ve been meaning to take my son & his friends here for a while. So glad I finally did. It was really cool how much WW history this place had. So many uniforms, historic literature, model planes, actual bombs & missiles that were of course disarmed, photos, old newspaper clippings, big H0 scale model train set active display, old jets & helicopter. So much to research. I’d go again.

About Moffett Field Historical Society

Since opening in 1933, Moffett Field has seen aircraft from the Army Air Corps, the Navy, NASA, and the National Guard land safely. It's famous Hangar One is one of the largest free-standing structures in the world, and the field holds the distinction of acting as the site where the nation's last rigid airship, the USS Macon was built. In 1994, the Moffett Field Historical Society Museum was built to commemorate this historic field and capture its heritage. Here, guests traverse exhibits that highlight the role of the airfield in the nation's military history.

  • Permanent Collection: thirteen exhibits, organized by historical era

  • Eye Catcher: a scale-model recreation of the USS Macon, the nation's last rigid airship, built in Hangar One

  • Mainstay: the NASA exhibit, complete with equipment from experimental flights, wind-tunnel tests, and aviation flight simulation

  • Don't Miss: the flight uniforms from WWII through today—including a display dedicated to women who served

  • Hands-On Exhibits: kids and grownups can climb into P-3 and Harrier VTOL cockpits to get a sense of what it was like to fly these aircraft

  • Pro Tip: ask staff for a tour from a docent, whose encyclopedic knowledge about the facility's history—along with, in many cases, experience in aeronautics—enriches the experience
