If you are interested in experimental flight history, a visit to this museum is TOTALLY worth your time. There is so much history here in the form of artifacts and photographs. It is a very cluttered space where you can easily lose track of time....More

This museum is off the highway in Boron and was NOT open. People reported that is was open only randomly when the guy wants to come there SO be prepared. Try the phone to see-760-762-6600. The Boron Museum is open next door.

A small but growing collection of air/space from nearby Edwards AFB. Traces of test pilots, NASA and general aviation.. Neither thorough nor comprehensive but a little with a lot of interest and a vocal staff. Donation appreciated.

This is a very small museum that is next door to the 20 mule team Museum. There are a few air plains in the front yard. The building is very small with a few interesting things but I was not impressed with the stop.

This relatively small museum has a lot of displays and exhibits about the history of the aerospace testing done at Edwards. Having attended high school at Edwards in the early '60s, the museum brings back a lot of fond memories of the community and the...More
