Aerospace Museum of California,
Sacramento McClellan Airport, Sacramento

The museum was started by the USAF as McClellan Aviation Museum on what was then McClellan Air Force Base. The Air Base closed in 2001 and the museum was given its current name in 2005. There's a spacious hangar and a quite a spacious ramp, crowded in places. There's also a nice shop. We visited on 8th May.
