What do you get out of joining the MOMS Club? Lots of playdates! The moms club that I’m part of is not only super active and highly organize but creates really good activities for our kids. One activity I really like is a tour of the Western Museum of Flight in Torrance with a drive around the airport to see the hangars, parked private planes and helicopters.

The Western Museum of Flight is a non-profit, educational institution dedicated to preserving and displaying aircraft history and artifacts of Southern California’s aviation heritage. Children under 12 is free. And it’s a $5 donation for the rest of the not so young like us.
The museum houses the Northrop JB-1 “Bat”. It’s a World War II “Buzz Bomb” built in 1942. There are only three of Jack Northrop’s flying wings left in the world. This is one of them.
Opposite the museum’s hangar is another hangar that houses a plane that was once owned by Steve Mcqueen.
If you’re in LA especially the South Bay, do include this in your list of “things to do with the kids”.
