While getting through base security takes a few minutes, it well worth it. Lots of planes and history to explore. Folks at the center are great, lots of expertise and passion.

For a great history of the AF throughout US , including the Army AF. this is the place. Outside are familiar and rare Lockheed, Beech, Boing, Cessna models in every shape and size, including the Golden Bear, restored. Many mementos, photos, engines. Well labeled and displayed per era. I especially enjoyed photos and stories of the Berlin Airlift

Free admission. Lots of aircraft on display outside and a lot of historical displays are inside the building. I wish I had a lot more time to really go thru this facility. The volunteers that work here are doing a very good job. This is well worth the time it takes to go see it. I'm not sure if you... More

It was great. The boys, ages 16 and 42, could have spent the entire day here. There is so much to see. It was great seeing their faces light up with each new find.

Free day activity. You have to go to the visitors center and fill out a background tour and then someone drives you onto the base and you get to see lots of old air force planes including a old air force one plane. Inside the museum there is lots of memorabilia and smaller air force planes. There is even a... More

Great presentation and many tributes to the men and women of the last few wars. Airplanes and real life size cockpits, bombs and stories!

Our visit started with a 45 minute wait at the front gate to get on base. As the clerk so clearly stared, I had "no priority" as a civilian visitor with a family to see the air museum even though I too am a combat veteran. Once cleared by the gate, we then we picked up and taken on a... More

Travis is the last sight that many of our great military personnel saw before going to battle or off to experience a new assignment overseas. This is one of the busiest military locations in the world. There were thousands of people and freight loads that have passed thru this location. Located half way between San Francisco and Sacramento Calif. it... More

The name change reflects the change that is happening at this and other USAF Museums. Unfortunately, the Air Force is changing their museums at air bases from a general history of the AF to the history of each base. Although this can be a good thing, many of these museums are losing their mix of aircraft and displays and having... More

We visited this over the kids presidents break from school so it wasn't crowded which was great.
