Reviews From Our Educational Programs At The Museum

I teach at an online school and each year I host a field trip here. The docents are awesome. They have so many stories and knowledge to share with the students. Each plane is unique and we even got to go inside one of the helicopters. As a history teacher, this is a perfect field trip for all ages. Inside, there is a museum to meander through. It's free too!

Marine Corps aviation history, the artifacts on display at the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum and most importantly, the volunteers, greatly enhance our efforts to promote character traits including integrity, courage, perseverance and patriotism in schools and in the community.

The field trip to the museum was an amazing experience for my students. They were able to have a clear look at how values like responsibility, honor, respect, perseverance, and a strong work ethic translated into lifelong success. They also received the message that they would not have to wait long for the transformation, but that it would begin to manifest itself in their schooling. For many students, with the "real life" consequence of practicing those values so readily apparent, they finally understood what their schools had not been able to convey.
