The perfect place for my 3-year-old son! He LOVED seeing the planes, riding in the cockpits, & seeing the airport fire truck. This museum has the nicest staff, who are all incredibly knowledgeable. We will definitely visit again.

Super kid friendly. Dave, our guide was beyond amazing and answered all my kids’ questions. He made our experience complete! Down the street is a great little diner for lunch after your visit. Great place to spend as little as 30 minutes or if you are like my kids, almost 3 hours!

Wonderful experince with 3 kids (2 to 6 years old). Our guide Dave was very patient, extremely knowledgeble former pilot who told us so many great stories about the planes and his experience. After 2 hours the kids didn't want to leave and made us come back to the museum after we had lunch at the nearby cafe. We will most likely get a membership as this is a must go place for the boys. Thank you!!

About Museum of Flying

Donald Douglas started his aviation company in 1920 with only $600 and expertise honed as a civilian aeronautical engineer during World War I. Within four years, he had created the Douglas World Cruiser, the first plane to circumnavigate the globe. This achievement would start Douglas Aircraft on its way to becoming the preeminent manufacturer of commercial airliners for the next three decades.

Nearly two dozen aircraft are on display at the Museum of Flying, located at the Santa Monica Airport. Santa Monica holds special significance for the Douglas Aircraft Company, as well as aviation history as a whole. It was here that the DC-3 first took flight, helping usher in the era of commercial air travel in America. It was also where Douglas Aircraft produced tens of thousands of military planes during World War II. Several of these aircrafts now sit on display within the museum.

Douglas Aircraft merged with McDonnell Aircraft in 1967, but the Museum of Flying helps keep the original company's legacy alive. It even features a replica of Douglas' original boardroom. In another area of the museum, a Maxflight FS300 simulator lets visitors pilot many of Douglas Aircraft's most famous models. It can dip and roll 360 degrees to recreate World War II combat or the motion of a tumbleweed caught in an updraft, or it can keep a steady course during calm flights aboard a DC-3.

Although its main focus remains Douglas Aircraft, the Museum of Flying also houses art and displays related to aviation history as a whole. Exhibits showcase rare artifacts and other significant aircraft, such as a replica of the original Wright Flyer.
