The mission of the International Women's Air & Space Museum is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future. We have artifacts for over 6,000 women in the aviation and aerospace fields.

We aren't just a quiet museum in the airport, as we host numerous events and fundraisers throughout the year including; Dinner with a Slice of History, Family Day, Rocket Day and Corks in the Concourse.
