Flying Leatherneck Museum

The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum is a one-of-a-kind aviation museum, run by a dedicated staff, with the help of many volunteers. This command museum is located at MCAS Miramar. When you visit, you’ll be up close and personal with approximately 30 vintage aircraft and multiple military vehicles, including the Bell AH-1J “Sea Cobra” (Attack helicopter), the Chance-Vought F4U-5N “Corsair” (Radar-Equipped Night Fighter aircraft), and the Grumman A-6E “Intruder” (Attack bomber aircraft).

Inside the museum building, you’ll get to see aviation equipment first hand, as well as a view a vast range of historical items. And this summer, until September 7th, the Museum hosts Open Cockpit Days, where you can sit in a war bird and feel like a fighter pilot!  The museum entrance is located on Miramar Road, approximately 1 mile west of I-15, and is easily identified by the American and Marine Corps flags flying over the entrance.
