The Museum has 27 aircraft on display as well as artifacts from World War I to present day. The Museum is staffed by volunteers and is open to the public six days per week. It welcomes local, national and international visitors including many school and community groups. Open Cockpit Days and pilot talks are offered during the summer months.


Volunteers are an essential part of our Museum. Volunteering at the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about U.S., Marine Corps and aviation history; befriend others with similar interests (including many veterans who served as pilots and aircrew); and, serve your community. We will teach you everything you need to know.

The Museum has the largest collection of vintage aircraft flown by Marine Corps aviators in the world as well as thousands of artifacts from World War I to present day. Thousands of local, national and international guests visit each year. Currently there are 27 aircraft on display. New for 2017 is an exhibit on the Navajo Code Talkers.

We are recruiting for the following volunteer opportunities:

  • Docents (tour guides)
  • Education program assistance
  • PR and marketing support
  • Gift shop sales support
