Originally founded by Edward T. Maloney and opened in January 1957 in Claremont, just north of its current location, it was simply known as The Air Museum. Today you can have a very unique change of pace and take your wedding ceremony and reception to new heights at the Planes of Fame Air Museum, now located in Chino, California. With large open spaces and the most beautiful of backdrops, this is the perfect spot to perform your nuptials if you have a lot of people sharing in your special day. You can either go back in time with this venue or add hints of modern elegance within the airplane theme.
They will transform the Maloney Hangar into a grand reception hall that is enough to host up to 320 people for a sit-down dinner. Accompanied with its high ceilings and historic airplanes, this is a great and inviting venue that you and your guests will absolutely love.
Unlike many of today’s wedding venues, Planes of Fame event venue weddings gives you the freedom to bring in your preferred caterers or vendors. That way you’ll be able to have the reception with the caterers that you prefer to use.
