It is our mission to chronicle and preserve the critical role aviation has played throughout history and share this valuable information to the public through our unique exhibits, educational programs, and flight operations.
Our collection includes aircraft, vehicles, uniforms and other aviation memorabilia from the 1930s to the present time. Volunteer veterans offer guided tours of the aircraft located on-site and visitors are encouraged to sit in an A-7 flown in the Gulf War, as well as climb into the pilot's seat of an UH-1 Huey helicopter.

Amazing place. Everyone there was very knowledgeable and happy to share what they knew. Several aircraft were internally accessible, great pictures. Highly recommend.
Great place to visit, all volunteer staff extremely helpful and made it a great visit for my 4 year old son and I. We look forward to the next time. Many thanks 😁
