  • The Moffett Field historical society museum is a small museum run by a dedicated core of volunteers. The volunteers are usually ex-military people or from military oriented families. The museum was well-staffed when I was there. There were many people working on the displays. The displays are a selection of well-rounded memorabilia and some simulator cockpits and actual flight simulators. I think the primary audience for this museum are people who are interested in the United States Navy. There are a large number of uniforms and equipment from various decades. There are a large number of ship and aircraft models. There is also a fairly large library of written material. I did not go outside and see the aircraft that they have on display. The museum staff is also interested in connecting with people who would like to donate their time or historical items.
  • So much more to see than I thought! Wen I went, the place was mostly full with visitors and staff. Worth a visit to the train display in the back room also.
