About Fort Worth Aviation Museum

Location:

3300 Ross Avenue, Fort Worth, TX 76106, US

Mission Statement

"Giving Wings to Youth and Community through, education, inspiration and our aviation roots."

Description

Fort Worth Aviation Museum is an aviation history museum and air park located on historic Meacham Airport in Fort Worth, Texas. We feature 26 of the most touchable military warbirds in Texas on static display. We provide free guided tours through our museum and air park by knowledgeable docents, many of whom are veterans. We also offer tailored programs for youth, seniors, and other groups.

We rely on donations, our museum admission fee, and the profits from a small gift shop to cover our operational costs. In addition, groups are able to rent our facility for special events. We are a Blue Star Museum and offer free admission to active military personnel year-round.

We had over 10,000 visitors to the museum in 2017 and our outreach to community totaled over 82,000 connections to our programs. We also have an active aircraft restoration program. No experience needed, our volunteers include many retired military aviation technicians who are glad to have help and teach their skills. Managing our collection and maintaining our displays are ongoing activities under the direction of our museum professional operations director.

Although we are a professional, rapidly growing museum, celebrating our 20th anniversary, our volunteers are family and make our museum a fun place to meet and share our stories and programs with our visitors, young and old.
