Lots to see and do here. Even rides for kids. Boneyard is huge. People here are very friendly and helpful. There is even a cute cat, Connie, who does tours of the Restoration area (short ones).

I was pleasantly surprises on the tour of the Yanks Air Museum. Do the tour in chronologic order to see the evolution of aviation. There is also a restoration area and outdoor exhibits. If you can there are sometimes docent tours which are very informative.

Photos can be trying as planes are squeezed close together. Your photography skills will be put to the test. Some very rare aircraft in the collection make a visit to this museum worthwhile. Aircraft are well represented from all ages (from a Wright Flyer replica...More

Pricing was fair. Very Commercial. Pushy about closing early. Clean exhibits. Not sure how many of the hangar Queens actually run. Large inventory of important aircraft.

While visiting relative in LA, I spent a Saturday afternoon wandering through this extensive collection. A great way to see finely engineered (and now well-restored) machines up close. I especially liked the detailed description of each craft--that plane's manufacturer and/or architect, the goals behind the...More
