An air museum with many aircraft used to protect our freedom. It’s a shame to see them in their current condition as they are badly weather worn and faded. Still worth a trip to view if you go to Santa Rosa.

Great local air museum with lots of things to look at. 95% of what they have is outside so it is weather dependent. With planes dating from the 1950s to 1980s, there are many docents to explain what you're seeing and give you background above...More
