Alongside Pacific Coast Highway in Ventura County, the Point Mugu Naval Air Station is home to the Pt. Mugu Missile Park. There you can see a wide variety of the missiles and airplanes that have been tested at Point Mugu since World War II. The park is located outside the perimeter fence and is easily accessible to the public. There is no charge for touring the missile park.
In the latter half of 2005, the Missile Park was extensively refurbished. AMD/IMA Airframes Division repainted all the missiles, installed new curbs around the displays and repaved the walkways.
