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 fighters. While visiting, guests get to climb inside and explore 3 different aircraft. Some special exhibits have take-home activities so families can continue learning when they get home!
The museum facility contains two hangars and one terminal building. The vast, all-wood white hangar, which is itself a part of Arkansas and American history, being former headquarters for one of the United States' many aviator training posts during World War II. Our modern metal hangar houses most of our military vehicles and rotor-craft. It is also the home of our restoration shop where volunteers work on military vehicles to restore them. Our last building is the home to over 500 artifacts ranging from WWI to the most recent conflicts and deployments.
There are two rotating exhibits at Arkansas Air and Military Museum. The first is located in the front lobby and rotates every one to two years. This area usually covers deep-dive topics. The second area can be found in our old terminal building. This is known as the Biography Room. In this space you will find a new personal story of a veteran every six months.
