The nearest public transportation is Metro Link from Los Angeles Union Station to Montclair. Then you would have to take a taxi to Planes of Fame.

Hi, we're off on holiday soon, we live in England, and I'm really looking to visiting PoF Museum :0) I could do either Saturday the 18th, Sunday 19th or Monday 20th of July. Two questions, 1) any thoughts on which day would be best to visit and why? 2) I'll need to travel from Hollywood, any thoughts on how I could get there, assuming its a train / taxi combo ? Would appreciate any advice. Cheers, Darren
