As we enter our 35th year of honoring our veterans and their families, please consider a donation of $35 to the Museum of Aviation Foundation.
The Museum of Aviation 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. Over the past 35 years, 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.
The Museum of Aviation hosts more than 550,000 visitors annually, including more than 500 community and military events.
The Museum of Aviation Foundation’s National STEM Academy integrates innovative, hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplines through the Heritage, ACE (Ask. Challenge. Educate.), TinkerTech, Mission Quest, and the Georgia NASA Regional Educator Resource Center programs. These programs are offered for learners ages 4 through adult. Rigorous, goal-setting experiences challenge participants to solve problems and are aligned to state and national education standards. Career opportunities and workforce development strategies are highlighted throughout. Field trips, workshops, and special events are conducted both at the Museum of Aviation and “On the Go” through outreach at school sites.
The Museum of Aviation Foundation relies on the generosity and support of corporate and individuals to donate and/or volunteer. Your support–large or small–prepares the next generation by helping the Museum educate and inspire our visitors, recruit the future workforce and honor those who have contributed to Air Force history.
It is only through your support that the Foundation can continue to grow.
