Directions To The Museum
The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum is located on Miramar Road in San Diego, California between Cabot Drive and Camino Ruiz.
The museum is actually on the grounds of MCAS Miramar, but Museum visitors use our own “Museum Gate” entrance. The entrance is on Miramar Road, 1.3 miles west of I-15 or 3.9 miles east of I-805.
How to Spot the Museum — You will see two flags — the American Flag and the Marine Corps Flag — flanking the entrance to the museum.
Find us on Google Maps.
Driving Directions To The Museum:
Traveling west on Miramar Road from Highway 15, you will see the museum on the LEFT side of the road AFTER the North Gate entrance. Do not go in the North Gate, as the museum is sectioned off from the main air station. The museum entrance is 1.3 miles west of I-15 on Miramar Road. It is located just after the intersection with Camino Ruiz.
If you are going east on Miramar Road from Highway 805, you will see the museum on the RIGHT side of the road AFTER the West Gate entrance. (If you see the North Gate, you have gone too far down.) The museum entrance is 3.9 miles east of I-805 on Miramar Road. It is located just after the intersection with Cabot Drive.
