The Hickory Aviation Museum was great today. If you're ever in Hickory please stop by and check it out. The veterans/volunteers there would love to show you around and chat. He also said they do short plane rides for kids 7 and up every other Saturday.There is one plane you can go into but the steps were wet, so it wasn't open. We'll def be back to check it out.

A good stop for aviation buffs aircraft modelers and kids.Lots of informational displays and memorabilia.The flight line was extensive if not a little ragged,lots of good jets but really just shells,volunteers very helpful.Admission is on a donation basis.Allow 60-90 depending on how much you like to read and browse flight line is hot so plan accordingly

A hidden gem! Lots to see and the staff couldn't have been nicer!! Runs solely on donations so make sure you put something in the box.

Other that visiting with other visitors there were several aircraft that I had not seen before. Perhaps I should preface this comment by stating that I have visited over a dozen aviation museums here and abroad. Like all private museums this on suffers from a lack of volunteers. I was impressed by the layout of the displays and the signage. I will probably return at some point in time (I want to see the cockpit of the P-3!)
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

We’re not Vets BUT we loved the displays, history, local heroes and especially the aircraft. We were able to board a P 12 and had a personal tour of the plane, so very interesting! Staff was warm and friendly and very informative. Go see this (Free) hidden gem at the Hickory airport.

For a small town Hickory has a lot to offer. An aviation museum right here. Take advantage of access to history.

We visited and loved it. The people who work and volunteer there are so nice and helpful. We learned so much and got to tour a plane. Plan on spending a couple hours or more to really cover the whole museum.
