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 paid the $10--it's not that much money---but the attitude and demeanor of the clerk there was such that I will never return.

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. From huge, vintage Coast Guard planes (that still fly by the way) to fighter jets from past wars. The history is rich and the planes and jets are amazing.

Visit during September and you might get lucky and catch the airshow, but bring lots of water as the tarmac gets hot! The airshow definitely draws a crowd so just stop by one random day and enjoy this not so hidden treasure in Sonoma County!

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 times to go too.

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.
