This museum is not fancy. The write ups on the Marines who have served their country and have been given medals by our country was inspiring, however. A lot of men have given their all to serve their country and preserve our way of life. Just visiting this museum and being aware of their sacrifices is important. They also have... 更多
This museum is small but nice; we stopped by here on 09/06 after attending a funeral at the Miramar National Cemetery. This museum is located just east of the Miramar Road gate. This is not on base so admittance is not an issue. There probably 25 planes and helicopters on display. There are also displays of other equipment. Well worth... 更多
Run by volunteers, this place has a lot to see. PIctures, planes, helicopters. There was a birthday party going on when we were there. The little ones loved the airplanes and it was nice to see the young families teaching their children about the history of our armed forces.
Attached to the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station, the Leatherneck Air Museum celebrates the history of Marine Corps Aviation. It’s not bad, but you really need to have an interest in Marine Aviation to really enjoy it. No fee to get in, they do ask for a donation.
If you are a fan of military aircraft then you should definitely visit this museum. It was a joy talking to the marine veterans that volunteer there. The selection of planes is excellent. I went with my kids and they loved it too. If you go, I hope you make a small donation. I noticed some of the signs explaining... 更多
The museum has its own entry gate, so access to the main base is not required. There is a small museum building with artifacts such as uniforms and aviation awards. Outside there are over 30 aircraft used by the USMC. Great place for military aviation buffs.
We have visited many air museums but this one was a small gem. The aircraft reflected the Marine Corps aviation 1942 to today, and some of the aircraft were unique to only this place. The volunteer staff were enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate and altogether it was a couple of hours well-spent.
We spent a couple of hours being escorted thru the displays in the museum building and the many a/c on display outdoors by docent Lt. Colonel (Ret.) Jack Cooper. He is a former fixed and rotary wing pilot with extensive experience flying helicopters in Viet Nam. His knowledge of the museum exhibits is encyclopedic and his comments were both entertaining... 更多
Located just down the road from Miramar base, this is a great little find for young and old alike. With ample parking and free entry, this just needs to be enjoyed. You are welcomed by a volunteer, who asks for nothing more than your zip code or if like us, your country of origin. A short explanation follows, then you're... 更多
Everyone knows that Pres Bush was a navy bomber pilot, but did you know that Paul Newman was a turret gunner? It was an easy 20 min drive from SD and the price was right, free! Museums like this are an easy way for me to absorb history. The volunteers are great, one of them spent 30 mins talking to... 更多
