Building Plans for New Museum
This Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum is the only museum in the world, dedicated to the primary purpose of preserving the history of Marine Corps Aviation. When finished, the museum will tell the story of Marine Corps Aviation-aviators and the Marines that put them in the air and kept them there.

A truly magnificent view as the visitor approaches the museum.
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM and at other times by special arrangement.
Take Miramar Road and look for the Museum Gate. If you're going east, it's just past Cabot Drive on the right. If you're going west, it's just past Camino Ruiz on the left. See the Map
Look for the American Flag and Marine Corps flag on the fence!
