4.6
#4 of 6 in Museums in Santa Rosa
The Pacific Coast Air Museum, in Santa Rosa, California, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving aviation history through the acquisition, restoration, and display of historic aircraft. The museum displays a varied collection of over 30 American military, propeller, and jet aircraft.
The museum is located about eight miles northwest of downtown Santa Rosa, at the Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport. Exhibits documenting local aviation history are housed in an original WW II era fabrication shop, along with an aviation reference library, and gift shop featuring aviation themed books, clothing, and toys.
The museum displays a varied collection of about two dozen military aircraft from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, including an A-4 Skyhawk, a Lockheed D-21 drone, an F-16 Fighting Falcon, an F-105 Thunderchief, an F-106A Delta Dart, and a UH-1 Iroquois ("Huey") helicopter. It also has a kit-built Bede BD-5, the world's lightest jet aircraft; and a hand-built replica of civilian aviation's most famous historic aerobatic airplane, a Pitts Special S1.

  • It’s the best place ever and family friendly and be able to go touch airplanes and get to sit in the copit.
  • My boys (5 and 10-years old) are HUGE airplane enthusiasts. I wanted to try something new as we have already been to the California Aerospace Museum, Castle Air Museum, and the Oakland Aviation Museum. I must say now that this is an awesome little place with a great collection of aircraft. The day we arrived there were actually only two staff on site: someone at the cashier's desk for the gift shop and another gentleman outside tending to the aircraft on display. Despite this, we had an amazing tour and the customer service was A+++. The volunteer who provided our tour (I can't remember his name at the moment) was so engaging and provided us with lots of aircraft history. We even had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of one of the planes. We sincerely enjoyed ourselves. The Pacific Coast Air Museum is worth the trip!
