Whilst visiting family and friends in Ontario, Ca we took the opportunity to visit March Air Museum. Wow! For just $10 per Adult, what an experience. OK, I was formerly in the Royal Navy so places like this are usually on my list of things/places to visit whilst holidaying. However, others will find it as enjoyable. The staff were very... More

recently my company held a day retreat at the air museum. Everyone had a wonderful time. Really enjoyed the museum. It was a lot bigger than I expected and had lots of interesting information. Great history for the kids to see. I would definitely recommend the March Air Museum as a good place to spend a day reading and experience... More

I stopped at the March Field Air Museum on Veteran's Day to pay my respects to the veterans (myself included) who served this great country. It was well worth the visit (free on Veteran's Day for vets and only $10 for adults) to see the SR-71 and a nice mix of aircraft from WWII forward. The outdoor static displays are... More

I took my grandkids, ages 1-4, and they all seemed to have a good time. The 4-year-old is an airplane enthusiast. It was difficult for them to resist touching everything but there are several displays that they are allowed to get in and interact with. My only complaint was the music that was constantly being played. For some reason everyone... More

We had a wonderful day at The March Air Museum. We started with a tram ride @ about five dollars each from a well informed tour guide, probably one of the best tours we have ever taken. Our grandson is four years old and he loved looking at all the planes, my husband loved all the history behind the planes.... More

I have always wanted to visit this place. Unfortunately my first visit was for a memorial service for a friend who served in the military. From what I did see to what we had access to and what we could see over the fence looks pretty amazing. We have purchased a family pass and plan on going before the end... More
