Alameda Naval Air Museum

Come and see the history in your own backyard — at the Alameda Naval Air Museum in Alameda, California.

Our museum is home to a unique collection of artifacts and exhibits emphasizing the role of the Alameda Naval Air Station in the defense of our nation and as an integral part of the local community for over 50 years.

We are open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Call us at (510) 522-4262 for more information.

April 1, 1942 sixteen bombers, their five-man crews and Army maintenance personnel, were loaded onto the USS Hornet at Naval Air Station Alameda under the leadership of Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle.
