Located near the Charles M. Schultz Sonoma County Airport (STS), the Pacific Coast Air Museum has a wide variety of aircraft ranging from the small Pitts Special and Bede 5J jet (think James Bond) up to an Ilyushin "Crate." In between are displayed 37 other planes, helicopters, a drone, parts of the SR-71, and cockpits. An A-26 "Intruder" is located... More

They put on the annual air show and it is always impressive with what they are able to produce. The Museum has an impressive collection of warbirds that are restored and in the process of restoration. The members are dedicated and knowledgeable of the birds and their history as most have served with similiar aircrafts.

Took my uncle here who was visiting from out-of-town. A good variety of planes to view and a lot of information as well. I was a little taken back. There was a sign that said there was a "suggested donation" of $5. The clerk who was there advised us that it would be $10 for the two of us. I... More

I truly miss my old drive to work from my home in west county. The traffic was light, the vineyard country roads were beautiful and a few minutes before I would arrive at the office, I'd pass by the Pacific Coast Air Museum. A look to your left while driving passed the airport and you will see 20-30 various aircrafts.... More

This is an awesome place to visit and to take visiting friends and family. Even if you are not into airplanes, you will find yourself reading about each and every plane and studying the history of the items displayed in the museum. There is a nice gift shop and the few months they have " Hot Dog Thursday" are fun... More

The museum is pretty small, but a lot of fun. Kids and adults can climb into the old aircrafts. They host some pretty cool events. Hot Dog Thursday's throughout the summer, the air show in September, they even fly Santa in on a helicopter in December. They staff is super friendly and knowledgeable.

A great place to visit and enjoy many wonderfully restored aircraft. You can walk right up to the planes. There are no ropes that keep you back. You can get up close and personal and on the third weekend of most months they have an Open Cockpit to see just what it's like to fly one of these marvelous planes.... More

This is a small collection of 20 to 30 aircraft. While there are some civilian aircraft, most displayed are former military units. Each of the displayed planes has a very good description posted next to it and there are volunteers ready to answer any questions one might have.
