The curator was so very friendly and informative, it was like chatting with an old friend. Even if you're not an aviation buff/expert, you'll enjoy the museum and hall of fame because all exhibits are clearly displayed and described. Most, if not all, of the aircraft at the museum are flyable and the fly-ins held at various times throughout the... More

Off of Hwy 49, just outside of Asheboro NC, is a hidden treasure to be sure ! My husband and I discovered this attraction last week on a trip to the coast.

My family and I visited this small museum on Good Friday before Easter. There are two airplane hangers filled with static aircraft displays, airplane models, uniform displays, and much more. We could have stayed for a least two or three hours if we tried to read and see everything.

Wow!, If you are an aviation buff or associated with aircraft in any way, then you must see this museum. Located at the Asheboro, NC airport it houses many vintage aircraft and displays. Some even associated with the Wright Brothers. You must take time to browse its contents and then stop at the gift shop for a gift to remember.

This was well worth the bit of a drive from Asheboro. Several amazing exhibits of war planes and hands-on displays. Very well maintained and friendly staff.
