Where are we going today?

You better keep an eye out overhead at the March Field Air Museum in Riverside, because there are take offs and landings all day, you won't want to miss that unique experience of seeing an aircraft up close...whilst in the air!

For all of those aviation loving families, the March Field Air Museum is for you. It is home to over 70 historic aircraft which are always popular with the kids, and the displays inside all relate to the history of March Field (Now known as March Air Reserve Base)

The exhibits at the museum are home to thousands of artifacts which are on display for you to explore! The history of aviation is covered at the museum - from the end of WWI all the way to present day. That's a lot of history to cover to we hope you're ready!

In the hangar you can come face to face with some pretty rare and unusual aircraft too, including a P-59 fighter. Do you know what is so special about this aircraft? It was actually the first operational jet that was adopted by the US Air Force over half a century ago! Pretty impressive!

It's just facts like those that you will be able to learn all about when you visit!

The March Field Air Museum also holds a theater where you can watch films all about the history of March Field, as well as US Military Aviation. 

During your time at the museum, you can enjoy a Flightline Tram Tour throughout the day, or Restoration Hangar tours on Saturdays at 1:30pm

Want to know something very cool too? Did you know you can take part in Paranormal Investigative Tours at the museum? Keep an eye out for the next Ghost Walk!

Ghost and planes...what a very cool family day out in Riverside!

    Seeing the SR-71 Blackbird up close is worth the small entrance fee alone. Excellent collection of military aircraft. We made the trip here after visiting Disneyland. Very glad we did. Rather than donate, why not buy a load of stuff from their gift shop?

    This is a great military aircraft museum. I've been there a few times and it just keeps getting better. I went recently with a few friends and were going to this and Planes of Fame in Chino on the same day. After about 2 hours, we hadn't even seen a third of what was here, so keep up the pace if you don't have all day. I don't if they're always open, but the last two times I've gone, the restoration shops have been active and the folks there love to give you ins and outs of their projects.
