This was a nice surprise, the museum has numerous vintage aircraft and vehicles and is easily accessed from NC HWY 64. Take an hour or so to see this "up-close" display of aviation history.

If you are a WWII or Korean War History buff, the North Carolina Aviation Museum at the Asheboro airport is an absolute MUST! It is amazing! Just to be clear though, it is not a museum of WWI or Korean war aircraft. However, each wall of the two hangers that house the museum is filled with artifacts, memorabilia, newspaper clippings,...

This was my 2nd time visiting the museum. I introduced my boyfriend and my 10 year old nephew to it. They thought it was great. They enjoyed all the war history. I enjoyed reading all the local newspaper articles from the 40s. It was a great way to spend a Saturday.

Off the beaten path, located at a small airport in a rural airport. Maintained by some aviation enthusiasts who do a good job. Great place to spend a few hours wandering.

For no larger the airport, they always have a nice air show. This last year they had a 'cruse in' with some classic autos. If you drive from a distance, you might be disappointed but we have always appreciated the pilots who spend the money to come to our area.

I'm not a huge aviation fan but I did enjoy the museum. All the exhibits are clearly labeled and offer a lot of interesting information. My only complaint is they were setting up for a WWII dance party in the second hangar and you had to walk around tables and chairs to see the exhibits and it appeared they had... More

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. We couldn't have been more surprised at what we found ! Two airplane hangars full of aircraft history and displays of artifacts related to aviation history in NC.... More
