I write this as a military history enthusiast, you never know what artifacts of historical precedence one will see when entering a museum. March Field has so much history, being established during World War I. The majority of the collection is outside which is dependent on weather conditions. The staff was very helpful and friendly (most of the staff that... More

The Inland Empire and surrounding area is home to some of the finest air museums I've visited anywhere. Whether Palm Springs, Chino, or March Field, each has so much to offer. Spend the day here and take a trip back in time, both inside and out are amazing.

As air museums go this one is ordinary and kind of sparse. Nothing there is extaodinary. They did have a small exhibit of Tuskegee airmen memorabilia. The Vietnam era spy plane exhibit is also interesting. If you live close, it might be worth a visit with the kids, but if you live outside the area, find one closer to you.... More

If you have someone in the military this is a nice place to visit and take them. Great for kids as well. Only wish the planes on display were in a hanger. (weather beaten)

My husband was stationed at March AFB 50 years ago, before being deployed to Vietnam. This was his first visit back here since that time. He really enjoyed it as he loves planes and they have over 70. There was also an inside display of items from various wars and an outside replica of a Vietnam command post. It was... More

Always eager to view aircraft museums and a visit to March Field is a must. 3 or 4 large exhibition halls greet you for your $10 entrance fee showing aircraft and stories from the last 2 wars. The SR71, the fastest aircraft ever build and flown is on display in the main hall. Outside there are currently 76 old aircraft... More

With the museum continually expanding it is worth a visit if you haven't been there in a while. The staff is helpful and it is now easy to reach by car.
