I ended up visiting here with a coworker. We were on a trip to Oakland and had an hour to kill, so we came here. They have a handful of very nice aircraft inside the museum. The bulk of the aircraft are essentially scrap metal though. It's somewhat depressing seeing them in the condition they are. Everybody was friendly enough... 更多
If you fly into Oakland International Airport and take the shuttle to the car rental center, you’ll notice Oakland Aviation Museum, en route. I’ve always been curious about this place for years, and I finally had the opportunity to visit. I have to say that I am of two minds about this attraction. I’m really torn: On the positive side,... 更多
I have seen this museum from the highway for years and finally got a chance to visit. I took my two grandsons age 6 and 8. It was great for them and me. The musum's pieces are well cared for and informative. The personnel are knowledgable and friendly. It is very kid friendly as well.

While driving by at 35 mph might not be the most ideal way to explore the museum, we were nonetheless able to make out a few aircraft, including some dating back to World War II. If we had had more time, we might have considered a real... 更多
This museum is rather small and slightly run-down, but it hosts an interesting collection of planes, engines and other pieces of the past. All-in-all a well put-together exhibit. For an aviation enthusiast, it's well worth the visit if you're nearby.
A visit to this homegrown museum is like walking into a life-size scrapbook of aviation history. It exists because the volunteers will it to, despite a lack of respect and support from the Port of Oakland which owns the land and the buildings. The museum is kind of like Oakland itself, a city with lots of history and pride that... 更多
This is out of the way and really focused on aviation history from an Oakland perspective. The exhibits are very accessible and easily understood. There are some unique exhibits such as a BOAC flying boat and a Boeing experimental aircraft.
This is a small and somewhat neglected museum, there are no fancy video displays or a gourmet coffee bar. What they have is a bunch of aviation stuff that you can actually get close to and touch, and friendly staff who really know their stuff. My son and I have had two wonderful outings there, wandering around and looking at... 更多
Interesting choices of aircraft, and certainly a good deal of history for people to learn. Having someone to explain in detail the significance and history of each type of aircraft makes all difference, as does having a thorough technical knowledge of each.
