Aerospace Museum of California


The Aerospace Museum of California is located in Sacramento, at the former McClellan Air Force Base. Originally part of the National Museum of the United States Air Force, after the base closed due to a BRAC decision, the museum became a non-profit organization in 2001. In 2007, it moved from its previous location on the former air base to its current four and a half acre park.


Today, the museum boasts a collection of 40 aircraft, a wide-ranging collection of aircraft engines, and an active STEM program that provides opportunities for local schools’ students to experience hands-on aviation activities.


There are a number of rare, well restored aircraft, such as a Navy DASH 50, a Curtiss Wright B-14-B Speedwing, a Convair VC-131D transport and a pair of MiG jet fighters.


California has a rich aviation legacy, and many aircraft and equipment that made in impact on the U.S.’s flight development are displayed here. Some of these displays are here; you can hover over the thumbnail for an ID, or click for a larger photo.
