The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum has the largest collection of aircraft flown by USMC aviators in the world. Kids and adults can strap into an ejection seat, put on a helmet, interview a pilot and try their luck with an “I Spy” activity. 31 historical aircraft from World War II to present day are on display. Indoors there are 8 galleries of displays including the Hall of Heroes and Marines in the NASA space program. Temporary exhibit for 2019 features Military Working Dogs.
The Museum is primarily staffed by volunteers who served as military pilots and aircrew. These veterans share with visitors their knowledge as well as spellbinding stories of their time in service.
Open Cockpit Days again will be offered on every other summer weekend. Cockpits of select historical aircraft will be opened so visitors of all ages can experience Marine aviation from a pilot’s perspective on July 4th, 6th -7th, 20th-21st, August 3rd-4th, 17-18th and 31st and September 1st.
Admission and parking are free.
