Overview

This museum is housed at the world's oldest continuously operating airport. Its fun, interactive exhibits will captivate visitors of all ages. The gallery itself is a one-eighth scale replica of the Wright brothers' hangar, where they built their first military airplane. It was here, in 1909, that Wilbur Wright trained military officers to fly. The museum's many artifacts include the Wright brothers' 1911 Wright B, a 1918 'Jenny' airplane that was once used for airmail, and a 1932 Monocoupe aircraft.
