The Pacific Coast Air Museum Welcomes You

You’ll find a five-acre field covered with authentic, well-cared-for aircraft. You can crawl under them, look inside wheel wells and bomb bays, peer into cockpits, and actually sit in some of them on Open Cockpit Weekends. Kids love PCAM!

Same Location, Open for Business, Our Aircraft are Right Next Door!

The Pacific Coast Air Museum has moved its aircraft next door and we are open for business, and you enter through the same location as always at One Air Museum Way.

That's right, our long-awaited move has happened. The Gift Shop and Museum Entry are in the same place, and all the aircraft are just an easy stroll to the lot next door, at the historic Butler Hangar.

Come visit us! See our new exhibit space! Fly our Flight Simulator! Bring the Kids!
