What is there to do?

If you love aviation, or history, (or both!) then a visit to the Pacific Coast Air Museum might just be for you!

This historic and fascinating museum spans across a five acre field, that is covered with authentic, well-cared for aircraft, each with their own incredible history. 

Kids can learn all about not only the aircraft, but the history of aviation in combat, as they crawl under them, look inside the wheel wells and bomb bays, peer into the cockpits, and on the Open Cockpit Weekends, actually SIT in them!

Yes, the Pacific Coast Air Museum is very much geared up for kids to visit! 

Did we mention that kids can also fly in their Virtual Reality Flight Simulator? This highly realistic 3D VR flight simulator puts YOU in the cockpit of a P-51 Mustang, F-15 Eagle, and others!

As well as the aircraft, the Pacific Coast Air Museum also feature exhibits that tell the story of the technology and humans involved in manned flight. The exhibits are filled with artifacts and displays that explore the story of flight in the Sonoma County area, as well as flight helmets, goggles, and aircraft instruments from the 1930s and 1940s!

Not only can kids understand the history of the aircraft and their use, but they can also learn about those heroic aviators who have contributed so much to the growth and defence of our way of life.

So FLY into your next family day out, and make a stop at the Pacific Coast Air Museum. Learning, history, planes, and plenty of kids fun!
