We are established as the Aviation Museum of Santa Paula, a California Non-profit Corporation, located on the historic Santa Paula Airport.

Our Purpose:

Gathering at the MuseumOur primary purpose is to provide facilities and displays for the education of visitors, including children, and to encourage the enjoyment of aviation.  Our main focus is aviation history, both in general, and as it pertains to the unique Santa Paula Airport and its rich history of pilots and others associated with it.

About the Museum

  • The Museum consists of what we call the “Chain of Hangars,” each hangar exhibiting the owner’s personal collections. Each one is unique! The private displays include antique, classic and experimental aircraft; automobiles including race cars; motorcycles; an enormous antique radio, juke box and phonograph collection; paintings and photographs; model aircraft and a variety of aviation artifacts.
  • The Museum Chain of Hangars, our gift shop and display of aircraft are open for public viewing and the enjoyment on the First Sunday of each month (weather permitting) between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The airport is active all day long (again, when conditions allow), so flying activities on the ground and overhead add to the day's fun for aviation enthusiasts. Special ground tours are available by appointment.
