Aerospace Museum of California
Aviation or military buffs can spend hours at the Aerospace Museum. Planes of U.S. military significance from World War II to the present day are on display. Actual restoration projects are undertaken here. If you look around you might be lucky enough to see one of the F-117 Stealth Fighters sometimes serviced at the base. Tables are available for picnics, and a gift shop is full of fun souvenirs. See website for museum news, admission pricing and more.
I just want to say from the comment left about the Star Trek exhibit..
It's a traveling exhibit that the Aerospace Museum held.. It is not THEIR exhibit, they were just housing it so that should not effect your view about the museum in general.
& the part about the girl being rude, a lot of customers are rude and don't realize it because they think that they have to be catered after. I bet you have never worked in the kind of position she is in.
The museum is awesome, period.
I took my family to the Star Trek exhibit here the day after Christmas. I was treated very rudely by the front desk girl and the exhibit was expensive and boring. And I am a huge Star Trek fan. You just walk through and mostly read poorly lit posters of info near bits of Star Trek stuff. Not even close to the Star Trek experience in Vegas. I will never go again to this museum. The planes were boring as well.
The people at this museum, volunteers, were very friendly and willing to answer all my questions. I was especially amused when one of them referred to an airplane he had flown and called it "400,000 rivets flying in loose formation." The one he spoke of was a C-119, other airplanes there include a EC-121, military version of the TWA Constellation, and the entire "Century Series" of US fighters from the 1950s and 1960s. The museum also has an A-10 tank killer that was actually flown and shot up in "Operation Desert Storm." It still has the bullet holes. They are amidst remodeling the museum, but they are friendly and helpful, I recommend it for the whole family...besides, it is inexpensive enjoyment and you might learn something, I did.
