Arkansas Air & Military Museum

Follow the colorful history of aviation in Arkansas and American military conflicts through numerous displays of original artifacts and aviation memorabilia! The historic aircraft in the Arkansas Air & Military Museum are unusual among museum exhibits, because many of them still fly. Static displays at the museum range from the golden age of aviation to the jet age, including Vietnam-era Army helicopters and a Navy carrier fighter.

The vast, all-wood white hangar, which houses it all is a part of American history, being former headquarters for one of the United States' many aviator training posts during World War II.

Special Announcements

Our Beloved Museum Director of many years WARREN JONES passed July 2nd.

It is with a heavy heart that I inform everyone that on July 2 Our Beloved Director, Warren Jones, of the Arkansas Air and Military Museum lost his battle with cancer. Warren had resigned from the Museum late in 2014 and moved to be closer to his family earlier this year. Warren will be missed by all. Warren’s funeral is scheduled for Saturday 11th. The OBIT should be in the paper soon but I understand that the family has asked for donations to the American Cancer Society. Here is a link to a newspaper article of how he will be remembered to most of us. http://www.nwaonline.com/…/fayetteville-s-arkansas-air-and…/
