Visiting the March Field Air Museum

Rise to the Heights of Aviation History

During your stay at Red Lion Inn and Suites Perris, take a journey through a one-of-a-kind tribute to the aviation history of the United States. The March Field Air Museum, one of the most popular Perris attractions, showcases over 70 aircraft and more than 30,000 individual artifacts stretching back nearly 100 years.

March Field holds everything from personal effects belonging to pilots in World War II to meticulously-restored aircraft and recreations of military sites. Even for those unfamiliar with our country’s aviation legacy, the Museum is a powerful and enriching experience.

  • Firebase Romeo Charlie – Located on a half-acre next to the museum, this is a replica of a Vietnam-era Forward Operating Location, complete with helicopters.
  • The World War I Exhibit – Housed in a replicated Western Front trench, Allied, German and American artifacts explain the beginning of the “Great War” and how the MFAM was founded to aid the war effort.

  • The Exhibit Hall – Features a rotating selection of portraits of legendary aviators from the Thompson Aviation Art Collection.
