The volunteers here and next door have given thousands of hours of their time to produce a really excellent collection and display them in a very informative way. Some really unusual aircraft to be seen here.

This is a fantastic place to bring the family to get up close with some amazing airplanes. There is a large variety so it’s not focused on one type. It’s an easy walk but take note the summer can be brutal here so best seen...More

this is a fantastic trip down memory lane, of the many Antelope Valley Aerospace and Aeronautical achievements. It is well laid out and easy to maneuver around. My one piece of advice is to go early and avoid the heat, as shade is very limited....More

Bring your camera. Take lots of pictures from all kinds of angles of the planes by themselves--no people. Then take lots more with people. There's even the miniature wind tunnel testing models on display--they're cool-looking. Don't miss the gift shop. By the way, there's an...More
