This little museum, next to the San Carlos Airport, has an amazing collection, including vintage aircraft, prototypes, and photo and video displays. There are over 40 full-size aircraft on display.
The museum is kid-friendly. There is a an array of flight simulators where museum docents help kids (and adults) master the fine points of piloting an aircraft.
And of course, there’s a nice little store where you can pick up aviation-themed toys, gadgets, book, and souvenirs.
