Statement of Purpose:

"Creating unlimited horizons in aerospace education through preserving and presenting the history of flight."


We are one of the largest aerospace museums in the country. Not only do we have aircraft, but we have 5 display buildings with a wide variety of exhibits. Thus, there is something for everyone. Our exhibits cover all aspects of aviation, both foreign and domestic, from military (every branch) to civil, including commercial, homebuilt, and fire-fighting aircraft, etc.

In addition, we have a space gallery featuring exhibits that deal with the history of space flight and astronautics.


Over 220 aircraft on display, including a complete "century" (i.e., fighter plane) series. Several examples of aircraft which are the sole survivors of their type: Budd Conestoga, Lockheed AP-2H, Douglas B-l8B. Other types of which only 2 survivors remain: Boeing YC-l4, North American F-l07, etc. Possibly the largest collection of World War II aircraft in the nation, including bombers, cargo aircraft, gliders and trainers.

Also on display: Missiles, simulators and over 7000 rare and unusual aviation-related artifacts from the Museum's collections. Examples of ongoing permanent exhibits: "Black Aviators," the history of America's black pilots from World War I to the present.

"Experimental Aircraft," the trials and tribulations of aircraft design from the drawing board to the assembly line.

"American Aviation 'l5-'40," the "Golden Years" of American aviation between the two World Wars.

"Beyond the Edge," the early years of space exploration, the development of space age propulsion systems, training aids, and materials technology.

A large number of World War II-oriented exhibits including "Flak and Fighter," "War Souvenirs," and "Combat Gliders of World War II" plus a World War II barracks, the temporary home to tens of thousands of America's servicemen during the war.

Also, don't forget to visit the Titan Missile Museum, the only intercontinental ballistic missile complex open to the public and a real Cold War artifact.
