The Chico Air Museum

Chico has a rich and interesting history of flying and aviation. From Thaddeus Kearns to the Army Training Base to our current Air Attack Base, Chico has been influenced by airplanes. The Chico Air Museum was created to help preserve this history and educate and inspire people of all ages about aviation and the history of flight. It is located in a historic WWII hangar at the Chico Municipal Airport. Since opening in 2002, it has become a destination for local school field trips as well as a great place for veterans and families to visit. Attendance continues to increase with 6700 people visiting the museum last year. In additional to aviation displays, and artifacts, there are fifteen full size aircraft for visitors to view including two helicopters, a 1911 Spad and an F-15 Eagle. The museum charges no admission and is supported by donations and gift store sales. Monies raised by the Cioppino Feed will help CAM continue to improve the facilities and host even more visitors.

The Patrick Ranch Vintage Iron Museum
Patrick Ranch Museum, a 28-acre agricultural ranch and museum, is located 2 ½ miles south of Chico, California in the heart of Northern California’s rich farming community.  Our mission is to preserve and educate visitors on the importance of the valuable agricultural history in the area.  Vintage Iron Branch 136 was formed in 1997 by a handful of farmers, local businessmen, antique tractor and equipment collectors. Vintage Iron has been conducting the annual Threshing Bee at Patrick Ranch since 2003 and remains vital to the educational programs throughout the year.   This partnership has resulted in a team of local farmers and historians working together to provide thousands of guests of all ages with the fascinating history of farming and local agriculture. The Patrick Ranch Vintage Iron Museum will educate visitors through permanent and rotating exhibits of vintage farm equipment including demonstrations of their use in practices dating back to the 1800’s as well as methods that remain in use in current day farming.
