Overview
More
Estrella Warbirds Museum is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of military aircraft, vehicles and memorabilia of those who flew and worked in the military aviation field. Our approach, however, is not to glorify conflict but rather to make a future generation aware of the fact our way of life does not come without sacrifice. Founded over 25 years ago by two men with two airplanes and a strong desire to see an aviation museum in Paso Robles, California, little did they realize how far and how rapidly their initial dream would carry them. Today, located on over 13 acres of land, situated on the Paso Robles Municipal Airport grounds, the Estrella Warbirds Museum is one of the fastest growing non-profit museum on the west coast. The museum has become an intregral part of the Paso Robles community attracting visitors from around the world.

We went here just because it was near the concert venue we were attending. It was a surprisingly well done museum. We both enjoyed it a lot. We would return.

Very knowledgeable staff - and great to see many of these rare items up close. Great grounds. Hope new generations take advantage to see this and preserve a piece of our military history as well as classic cars.

It is known as the Estrella Warbird Air Museum, but, to me, the superior attraction is their historical auto collection. From period Packards to Jaguars, and so many others, their extensive collection is well worth a visit. The racing vehicles displayed were particularly special. There...More
