Overview
More
The U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of over 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. Approximately 50 beautifully restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are proudly displayed both inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the Museum's grounds. The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.

This is a great aviation museum to take the family to. They host graduations there so try to plan your visit around the graduations. It's not too big; however, there is still plenty to look at and great for a quick trip with the kids.

Amazing collection of helicopters and fixed wing planes of the army aviation group. Very well displayed throughout the museum. Make sure you watch the video. It is well worth the time and explains so much of what you will see.

Our 14 year old grandson loved this museum. Many helicopters and some planes on display as well as other items. Be sure to get there a bit early,as you have to get a visitor's pass.

My husband & I toured the museum with a close friend. The museum is great, and we were told several stories. My husband was there in the early days, 1964 - 1969. Thankfully before I met him. The only thing I think is ridiculous is...More

This is one of the better museums at an Army post. Elaborate displays and lots of great info presented on the displays. The items at the museum are a bit pricey and I wish it would offer easier access for folks without military ID. Nonetheless,...More

Take it from a history buff and Army Aviator; one of the best museums I’ve seen and well worth the visit. And it’s free!
