The museum offers two unique venues.  Our main building, the Kajia Raven Shook Aeronautical Pavilion (KRSAP) is ideal for hosting corporate holiday parties, fundraisers, and other events that require a larger space.   With an a variety of set-ups and room for up to 800 guests, the KRSAP has the capacity and flexibility to host virtually any large event.

Hangar 2 is the perfect venue for daytime events involving up to 100 guests.  Popular for luncheons, birthdays, and retirement ceremonies, Hangar 2 is the best option for right-sizing the venue to fit small to medium sized crowds.

To provide the greatest flexibility, the National Museum or World War II Aviation will work with any catering or equipment rental company that the event organizer prefers.  If you are looking for suggestions, please contact our events team for a list of our recommended partners.
