For airplane fans, aviation newbies, and future aviators alike, the Chico Air Museum is a great stop for the whole family. There are as many as 20 actual on-site aircraft to check out, plus uniforms, historical flight logs, and even space artifacts from NASA. If you check the website in advance, you can also find upcoming events or visiting speakers to make your trip extra special.
