Welcome to Castle Air Museum, Atwater, CA

A visit to the Castle Air Museum gives visitors a peek into the past and lends insight into the evolution of aircraft and the past milestones of aviation. It offers visitors of all ages a glimpse of what the future of aerospace might hold.

Our collection encompasses nearly seventy restored vintage military aircraft ranging from pre-WWII to the present on approximately twenty acres of beautifully-maintained grounds. In addition to the outdoor displays the museum is complemented by an indoor museum which houses a fascinating collection of wartime memorabilia including aircraft engines, military uniforms, historic photos, and personal military artifacts from the past century.

The Foundation has relied mainly on volunteers to restore and maintain the aircraft. The current site was obtained by the Foundation after the closure of Castle Air Force Base. The Foundation sponsors numerous public events and works with a variety of youth organizations and schools. 

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that receives no governmental support.
