Something for Everyone
Welcome to the March Field Air Museum. With over 70 aircraft and more than 30,000 individual artifacts, our museum strives to promote an understanding of humanity's reach for the skies and of March Field's pivotal role in the development of flight. For nearly 100 years, March Field has been home to aviation pioneers, some famous and some anonymous. They have left a treasure trove of precious artifacts from aircraft to flight gear, from simulators to uniforms, from photos to personal letters.
We encourage you to come walk in the footsteps of heroes. Step through a World War I trench line under the shadow of the world's fastest manned aircraft, the SR-71 Blackbird. Walk through a Vietnam era Fire Base surrounded by a brace of helicopters. Stand beneath the wings of a massive B-52 Stratofortress or World War II combat icons including the B-29A "Three Feathers" and B-17G "Starduster."
Whatever your age or background, the sleek fighters, bombers and cargo aircraft of the MFAM have something to fascinate everyone. With such a rich variety of artifacts, the museum's exhibits are constantly evolving to bring you new experiences however many times you visit. Enjoy your visit.
At the March Field Air Museum, exhibits cover a wide range of topics. Explore the rich history of March Field (today's March Air Reserve Base).
