The Aviation Museum of New Hampshire is a historical museum operated by the New Hampshire Aviation Historical Society, a non-profit group that preserves the history of flight in the U.S. state of New Hampshire. The organization's goal is to preserve New Hampshire aviation history through a series of dynamic and hands-on exhibits and programs, as the museum's website states. The museum operates in the 1937 Manchester Airport terminal building. The museum expanded in 2011.
The museum offers an accredited aviation education class for New Hampshire high school students. The course has two goals, to help prepare students for college, and to offer a career-based program to enlighten young people about the many and diverse career paths available in aviation today. The course offers six modules, and is based on the "Virtual Skies" NASA curriculum. This course is currently entirely funded by the museum through grants and donations.
The museum also offers a school outreach program geared towards NH and MA students in grades K-8. The presentation is one hour, and includes video, interactive demonstrations, and hands-on paper airplane building and flying.
Hours of operation are Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Sundays 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
The museum exists alongside a runway at Manchester–Boston Regional Airport, located in the 1937 terminal and control tower on the east side of the airport at 27 Navigator Road in Londonderry, New Hampshire.
