Veterans all throughout the history of the United States have sacrificed so much in the name of loyalty to their country. These patriotic heroes deserve the utmost respect, both in life and in remembrance after they’ve passed. We believe that celebrating your loved one’s military service with a memorial ceremony is a solemn and important task that should reflect the glory of their achievements and the significance of their sacrifices.
Lyon Air Museum’s stunning facility overlooking John Wayne Airport’s active runway is the perfect place to conduct veterans' memorials in Orange County. Our extensive museum features a pristine collection of aircraft, classic vehicles, and memorabilia from the World War II era. This unique backdrop offers an incredibly beautiful environment, making Lyon Air Museum one of the most historically relevant locations to conduct veterans' memorials in Orange County.
Our spacious 30,000 square foot hangar can accommodate up to 350 guests and is an ideal setting to celebrate the life and service of your beloved veteran.

During memorial services, Lyon Air Museum also provides two docents that offer visitors a rare glimpse into the past with a guided tour of our fully operational machines on display. These pristine exhibits provide visitors the opportunity to gain a better understanding of our country’s great history while celebrating the contributions veterans throughout history have made.
