Celebrating active support of Education and Equity for Women and Girls in Alameda since1962.
Join us for a Talk/Tour at the Alameda Naval Air Museum
Come learn about the rich history of early aviation and the Naval Air Station at Alameda Point from ANAM docents Robbie Dileo and Larry Pirack. They will give an overview of the naval base history and highlight some of the items from the museum’s vast collection of archival documents, photographs, exhibits and stories ranging from the first Transpacific flight by Pan Am’s China Clipper, to military units and civilian workers of World War II, up to the closing of the base in 1997. The museum is located in a former Air Terminal Building and was founded by two women, Marilyn York and Barbara Baack and opened in 2004. Following the talk, the museum can be explored at your leisure. For more information about the museum see: AlamedaNavalAirMuseum.org
This is a wonderful local field trip to explore an important piece of Alameda’s past and enjoy a lovely view and lunch.
