About Us

Explore. Discover. Be Inspired!

The Aerospace Museum of California celebrates the history of aviation and aerospace and inspires future generations of explorers, dreamers and doers.

With interactive STEM exhibits and hundreds of artifacts on site, aerospace fans of all ages can explore and pilot their own adventure!

Many children don’t have the opportunity to visit a museum and may never realize their interest in STEM careers. Our goal is to give over 30,000 Sacramento students a STEM education experience, every year — regardless of socio-economic background. Together, with our donors, volunteers and supporters we hope to inspire our students to pursue a career in future STEM industries!


“Absolute 5 star rating on the Aerospace Museum of California. It the the most complete and comprehensive collection of military planes, early flight, rockets and commercial aircraft and interactive activities I’ve ever seen. There is an indoor hanger area with lots of learning displays, actual rockets, flight trainers and simulators. Outdoors there are actual planes you can go into and really study. Not to be missed!”

“I learned much more than I expected when I went to this museum on several occasions. I like how some of the exhibits are interactive for people to learn even more and retain what they learn better. The space is well organized and the fleet of airplanes is impressive. This is a great museum to attend for kids and adults alike and has something to offer everyone! The volunteer docents are also very kind and knowledgeable.”
