Our Mission

The mission of the National Museum of WWII Aviation is to provide unique educational experiences that promote a deeper understanding of the historical importance of American aviation in World War II and its role in shaping the world we live in today. It does this to preserve and strengthen the best traditions of the American aviation past and inspire new generations of leaders and innovators in the future.

Honoring the Past... Building the Future

Our Vision

The National Museum of World War II Aviation is a place that that inspires and entertains people as they seek to gain a better understanding of the role that aviation played at a critical turning point in our nation’s history. As the museum continues to grow, it will soon be joined by two other world class-projects currently under development in Colorado Springs—the U.S. Olympic Museum and Hall of Fame and the U.S. Air Force Academy Visitor Center. Together, these uniquely different projects will be jointly marketed to create a magnet for historical research and cultural tourism that will draw visitors from all over the world.

Support the Museum

The National Museum of World War II Aviation is a non-profit organization that relies on the generous support of friends and like you. Our museum receives no federal funding or any other form of tax-payer support. We need your help to honor the contributions and sacrifices of America’s Greatest Generation, and to preserve the inspiring story of World War II Aviation for all generations to come.
