The Alameda Naval Air Museum (ANAM) is the physical link to the history of NAS Alameda and local aviation history.

Fittingly located in the former Air Terminal – Building 77 –  at Alameda Point, the museum houses a large catalog of artifacts from the days when Alameda’s West End was the true Gateway to the Pacific. ANAM’s tireless all-volunteer staff works to painstakingly preserve this rich legacy. Museum members and visitors generously provide the financial support necessary to help ANAM realize its mission and important role in the community.

One the ANAM founders, Marilyn York, was a Navy WAVE during World War II and driver for the first base commander. During the museum hours of operation, Marilyn will often recount tales from her decades of service at NAS Alameda for museum visitors of all ages.

The museum is located at 2151 Ferry Point Road and is open from 1000 hours to 1600 hours, most Saturdays and Sundays.
