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
