Stopped in for a bite to eat in Boron and saw the Aerospace Museum across the street. Went over after lunch to tour the place and it was locked! Not only that, no sign indicated when it was open! Seems to be a low budget...More

This museum operates on a VERY limited schedule so it is essential to plan ahead if you want to see the treasures on the inside. Outside the exhibits include an F-4 Phantom and a SAAB 35 Draken so I was quite happy having never seen...More

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.
