Adopting a name to memorialize the World War II Estrella Army Air Force Base , that which is now Paso Robles Municipal Airport, the Museum was chartered as a not-for-profit California corporation in 1992, and 501(c)3 accreditation soon followed to establish us with the US Departments of Navy and Air Force, as well as the state of California, as an organization approved to receive surplus aircraft and other government properties.

We are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of military aircraft military vehicles and memorabilia to those who flew and worked on military aircraft. Our approach, however, is not to glorify conflict but rather to make a future generation aware of the fact our way of life does not come without sacrifice.

From jeeps, side arms, early year aircraft, fighter jets recently retired from active duty, to antique ambulances, bombardier sites to modern missiles, from one of the earliest pilot's licenses issued by the FAA to unique personal items carried into combat during the previous century, from artifacts of airplanes which made aviation history, to piles of parts destined to end up as pieces of a fully restored vintage aircraft, you will find a unique collection of aircraft and artifacts. Preserving the equipment and the memories of those who came before us while preserving a bit of history, we have dedicated the museum to the men and women who are serving, whom have served, and, or sacrificed their life while in the military.

On July 19th, 2009, The Estrella WarBirds Museum added a new facility, The Woodland Automobile Display Building, which preserves yet another chapter of history, automobile racing.

F104Those involved with the Estrella WarBirds Museum have banded together with a common goal of honoring the past, while inspiring the current and future generations. We do not, in any way, want to stray from our previously stated primary mission dedicated to the restoration and preservation of military aircraft, vehicles and memorabilia of those who flew or worked on them. This work will continue, full steam ahead as we add additional aircraft and related memorabilia.

Estrella WB CarWhen our men and women come home from military service, most no longer have access to those wonderfully fast screaming, flying machines. Many found those interests fulfilled through the building, modifying or racing of automobiles.

Now, we can add another chapter of preserved history by complimenting those interests (and opening the doors to a younger generation). This is our gift to Paso Robles and the outlying communities. The Woodland Auto Display is filled with classic automobiles, historical racing cars, and unique artifacts from the world of automobile history and racing.

Come on down and check out our growing facility!

Located on the airport proper, the Museum is one of the few "fly-in or drive-in" facilities in the nation, and has over 500 members who rub elbows and enjoy the camaraderie at our monthly dinner meetings. Presently, hours are limited to Thursday through Sunday, and there is a minimal charge for admission to the Museum or its grounds. Everyone is welcome to come and see the growth of something exciting...

A most ambitious plan took wing over 20 years ago as the Estrella Warbirds Museum, in which the primary goal would be to preserve, perpetuate, and display American aviation history, especially that of our nation's military services.
