The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is a museum focusing on aircraft and nuclear missiles of the U. S. Air Force. The objective of the Museum is to preserve and display historic aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and provide STEM education sessions to the young generation. The Museum is a $29.5 million, 300,000-square-foot (28,000 m2) building that features a glass atrium, two aircraft display hangars, a traveling exhibit area, a children's interactive gallery, a 200-seat theater, a museum store, an aircraft restoration gallery, and a snack bar. The glass atrium is constructed of 525 glass panels that encase a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The Museum hosts regular travel exhibitions and several special events throughout the year. The Museum's Education Department is committed to fueling the curiosity of children across the Midwest and to educating them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Regular STEM sessions, workshops and camp programs are available at the Museum.

This museum is about 25 miles south west of Omaha, a short drive from the city. Admission is pretty inexpensive and there are daily tours at 11 AM. If you can't make a tour, it's otherwise pretty self-guided. Two extremely large airplane hangers contain over...More

I took the kids to this museum and we had a good time. Lots of WW2 and Cold War exhibits. Personally like the Doolittle Raiders exhibit and flight simulator. Kids thought it was cool and very interesting.

What an awesome display of what The Strategic Air Command put forth for the security of this nation and the display of world military dominance. Could use some of this now, don't you think. Wow!!!

Probably the only way is a taxi but may be cheaper to rent a car. It is just off I -80 so very easy to get to. But is several miles from Onaha depending where you are in the city.

Unfortunately, unless you get a cab, there is no public bus route that comes to the Museum.
