The National Museum of World War II Aviation has been officially recognized by Congress as “America’s National World War II Aviation Museum”.  Signed into law as part of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, this designation acknowledges the museum’s historical significance, and its standing among the elite museums that are dedicated to preserving our nation’s rich aviation heritage. 

Located on a 21-acre campus at the Colorado Springs Airport, the National Museum of World War II Aviation features modern exhibit galleries, aircraft display hangars and workshops, and offers guided tours of a world-class aircraft restoration facility located on the museum campus. 

The focal point of the experience, though, is the museum’s incredible collection of World War II aircraft.  The collection includes several extremely rare examples, some with documented combat history.  Most of these aircraft are meticulously restored to flying condition and are flown at air shows and on demonstration days at the museum.

“The museum tells the story of our nation’s tremendous technological advancements during the War and describes the lasting social and economic changes that were essential to the success of the Allied war effort. ”

We need your support to help preserve the story of World War II aviation and honor the contributions and sacrifices of all who have served in the defense of our nation.
