To help lower the threat of spreading the COVID 19 virus, the staff at the Chico Air Museum has decided to remain closed to the public until further notice. There are some special events that may be scheduled with review TBD on a case by case basis. Equally disheartening is the cancellation of many school Field Trips for which CAM is gaining special notoriety. 

However, our work to continually improve the museum will be taking place during the closure. We are excited to report the construction work has begun on the New Museum Entrance Project. Much of the parking lot and sidewalks are being removed this week. As always, improvement to the aircraft and exhibits will be taking place during this temporary closure.

Please visit this website or our Facebook page to for updates.
We look forward to seeing you when the coast is clear.
