Review of Castle Air Museum

Castle Air Museum

Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were driving down the highway and saw a sign - so we followed it and ended up at this little gem of a pace. We laughed when the lady asked if we had flown in, but then enjoyed every second of our time. The booklet was helpful (I think it was extra, but worth it). Fascinating - even for us peeps who are not aviation buffs. thoroughly recommended for everyone.

If you are an aircraft fan, as I am, and you find yourself in Merced, CA, as I frequently do, this museum is not to be missed. Better get the printed guide to help.

This air museum is worth the drive. They have over 50 air planes and a nice indoor museum with some great artifacts. They have a DC-9 that was used as Air Force One by Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H Bush and Bill Clinton. They have an SR71, a B52 and other great and historical air craft. This is a good air museum. Well done.

There are lots of planes to see, some rare and historical. SR71, large bombers, cargo, jets and now Bill Clinton's Air Force One. It soon will be displayed at the main entrance. Also rated somewhere in the top twenty for being Californias most haunted locations (Google it). Bring a lunch because or find one of many local restaurants in Atwater. Water and sunscreen in the summer.

A place worth visiting especially for families with young children and even adults with interest on planes.
