This page will be regularly updated to correspond to changes in the Museum’s operations.
The Military Aviation Museum
The Military Aviation Museum is home to one of the largest private collections of World War I and World War II era military aircraft in the world.
Each of our planes has been beautifully restored to its prior military condition, using original parts whenever possible.
Most of the planes are airworthy and flown at the museum during flight demonstrations and at air shows throughout the year. Some being the last flight-ready aircraft of their time, and all of them being one of a kind.
The museum is open to all. General admission applies for those arriving via ground transportation.
Come out and see the heritage and machinery of World War I and World War II!
Things To Do At The Museum
The MAM Museum has many family friendly activities. You can take part in our dinosuar scavenger hunt, soar the skies in a historical airplane, learn about WWII & WWI aviation, and much more! We are a self guided museum, although one of our knowledgeable docents would be more than happy to teach you all about the planes you are seeing!
Excellent collection of war birds! A very informed staff and tour guides! The kids had fun and asked lots of questions. Love that they are always expanding the exhibits….can’t wait to see what the watch tower looks like when it’s complete! Lots of great history!
While not the biggest, this is the single coolest aviation museum I have ever seen. Nearly every aircraft on display is in flying condition and you can really tell that it is the main focus of the museum. Every staff member I asked was able to point at a plane and say “I fly that one,” with amazing stories to boot! Definitely worth going out of your way to visit.
This was a great museum. A large collection of WW1 and WW2 planes. Most of their planes are in Air Worthy condition. The planes are in immaculate condition. A great spot for photographers. They do offer rides in 2 airplanes.
