Online Resources and Temporary Closure

Restrictions in California are starting to lift,  but we do not yet have a reopening date for the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. The museum is on federal property and is subject to the rules, guidance and regulations of the Department of Defense and Headquarters Marine Corps.  As soon as we have further information it will be announced on our website and in our social media platforms.

The museum’s doors may be closed but our work to preserve and share the legacy of USMC aviation continues.  The curator is making sure that the aircraft are protected during the closure.  Staff and volunteers are adding to the online resources available.  Look for additional interviews and activities soon.
