The only official Marine Corps Aviation Museum in the U.S., including over 40 aircraft and other military equipment and vehicles on display, History of Women Marines exhibit, and a Museum Store.
The Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation supports the one-of-a-kind Marine Aviation Museum, at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, developed by a dedicated staff, with the help of many volunteers. What sets this museum apart from all others is the fact that it is the only museum in the world dedicated to preserving the incredible contributions made by Marine Corps aviators and their ground support personnel. The museum has 34 aircraft and over a dozen military vehicles and support equipment on display on 7 acres along Miramar Rd, with a direct access entrance gate. The 4,000 sqft indoor facility has memorabilia and artwork from WWI to present day to include displays on Women in the Marine Corps aviation, Marines in the NASA space program.
Starting in May 2016, the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum will again begin our Open Cockpit Days program where the public can sit in several select few vintage aircraft and enjoy the cockpit experience of Marine Aviators! check back in the spring for the scheduled dates for the Open Cockpit Days for May-August 2016.
