The museum is not big showcasing many old photos of this place back in early 1900's. It has a aircraft inside where you got to try to sit in the cockpit as if you are the pilot. the outdoor view of the Moffett is spectacular and worth visiting.
My husband retired from Moffett 26 years ago and loved it. He enjoyed seeing all the displays and telling me about the various things he had done. The volunteers were full of information.
A look at Navy airships, army and Navy aircraft from the 1930s to today. The museum has lots and lots of documented history on Moffett field and the docents are extremely knowledgable and anxious to make sure you have a great time and get every question answered.

Not well known, so qualifies as a hidden gem. Lots of displays on dirigibles/blimps, flight simulators, and other military antiquities. Plus a huge HO gauge train display.

The Nasa Center is a bit disappointing. Not a lot to see, but this little museum is really complete with loads of items relating to the different eras of the Field, the Zeppelins, WWII items and lots of curiousities. Great volunteer staff made up of retired officers from Navy, Army, Air Force!
If you like biking then this is a good place to bike and take pictures along the way. Do check out the NASA museum which contains newspaper article reporting the first flight of the Wright brothers.
