Owner description: 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 found a leaflet for this attraction and were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find so many aircraft, rare vintage cars and WW2 memorabilia. Truely amazing! Very well presented. Pristine buildings, excellent displays, immaculate toilets, and very helpful staff. There was a range of fighter jets, tanks, weapons, armoured vehicles through to rare vintage cars (including racing cars). An absolute must see for history buffs and car fanatics! My 2 boys and husband were in awe of the wonderful things to see and many photographic opportunities. An air worthy Dakota is quite a sight to behold. A shame we are not here when there are shows....imagine that is definitely worth a visit!

This museum is beyond what you would expect for one of it type and size. The extensive number of aircraft, military vehicles, military munitions, race cars, classic cars, and military history displays is incredible. A must see for adults and children!
Great work by all the museum personnel and volunteers!

This Museum is a hidden gem for such a rural area, lots of vintage stuff for all to see and history to learn. Surprisingly well stocked for being in a small town.

A great place for kidos to run around and be active, lots of space and a few outdoor things to see also.

A nice break from wine tasting (not that that is not also a fun day), just another reason to visit the area.

This is a fabulous museum with something for everyone. They have the war room, warbirds, incredible restored cars, and stories to tell. The docents are very knowledgeable and more than happy to share.
