Our history

About the Museum of Aviation

The museum opened to the public on Friday, 9 November 1984 with 20 aircraft on display in an open field and another 20 were in various stages of restoration. The Museum of Aviation has grown to become the second largest museum in the United States Air Force and the fourth most visited museum in the Department of Defense. The museum is a place that honors our veterans and their families and reminds our Airmen of their legendary Air Force heritage.

    My father was a friend of col. Scott’s and an avid aviation modeler. We have a large scale flying tiger that Col. Scott signed as well as some other historical materials that belonged to Col. Scott and we are trying to find someone that is interested in taking these items for display. See no phone numbers or contact information on your site. Live in Washington State.

      I’m not sure, you would have to contact the base for that information. Macon and Perry, GA both have small airports, about 20-30 minutes away from the Museum, you may contact them as well. The closest international airport is Atlanta, about an hour and a half from the Museum.

      We are still adding Aircraft to the list on the new website. Photos will be up soon. Until then, please feel free to visit our Facebook and Flickr pages for photos of aircraft, exhibits, and more. Thank you.
