A museum dedicated to Alameda history.

Home to a unique collection of artifacts and exhibits emphasizing the role of the Alameda Naval Air Station in the defense of our nation.

The quirky museum houses some ninety-odd pinball machines, some dating back to 1871, which, after paying admission, attendees can play to their hearts' content. The museum also has an art gallery that hosts rotating exhibits.

The aircraft carrier saw action in World War II and Vietnam, and acted as a recovery ship for Apollo 11 and 12. Now a museum, it boasts an impressive collection of jet fighters, helicopters and exhibits.
