Our Mission is to honor and memorialize those veterans who provided ground support and flew the B-17 in the 390th Bombardment Group of the Eighth Air Force in World War II, to serve as a window on the air war over Europe by the 390th and related bomb groups in that conflict, and to educate the public on their service and sacrifice in the cause of freedom
We are a premier national research and historical learning center focused on the 390th Bomb Group, and its affiliated units, and their contribution to winning air conflict over Europe during the second world war. We use compelling exhibits, technology, and outreach programs to increase public understanding, appreciation and awareness of the importance of their impact on maintaining our freedom. Our volunteers, Docents, are from all walks of life and are trained and educated in the history of the 390th, as well as WW II, to interact with and meaningfully serve the thousands of guests who visit each year.
