Are you interested in military history and innovation? Then, you do not want to miss this hidden gem of a museum that showcases exhibits that educate visitors about the history of the famous Moffett Field. Any visitor would find it easy to get lost among the exhibits for hours at a time. Located just ten minutes from our Mountain View hotel, the Moffett Field Historical Society Museum offers a chance for visitors to learn about military history while avoiding the large crowds that other venues attract. Additionally, the volunteer staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They are always willing to help make your self guided tour an even better experience. 

After a short, ten-minute drive, you will arrive at one of the most charming museums that the Mountain View area has to offer. This spectacular museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 AM until 3 PM. Adult tickets are $8, teens cost $3, and children under 12 are absolutely free! The museum provides an easy to use exhibit guide which allows visitors to meander around the museum at their leisure on a self guided tour. However, if possible, try to arrange a guided tour with one of the museum’s fantastic docents who are mostly former military members who have actively lived the history that they describe on the tours. The museum is conveniently organized by the important eras of Moffett Field which makes exploration even easier. 

Before leaving after a fun day at the museum, make sure that you stop by the gift shop to pick some souvenirs to help you and your family remember your visit. Then head back to our Mountain View Hotel to unwind before venturing out for a delicious dinner at one the many fantastic restaurants in the area. 

Address: 126 Severyns Ave, Mountain View
