During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Because of concern for our volunteers, visitors, and our community, we have moved Hops and Props 2020, our 6th annual Hops and Props Veterans Recognition and Craft Beer Festival once again. The new date is Saturday, July 25, 2020. We'll need volunteers to direct parking and control traffic; greet visitors, check ID's and attach wristbands; distribute VIP bags; sell tickets, concessions, and merchandise; transport soft drinks, water, food, and ice between stations; work on litter control; do face painting and monitor children's activities. 4, 5 and 6 hour shifts are available.

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