Mission Statement

To Inspire and Educate, To Promote and Preserve Aviation and Space History, To Honor the Patriotic Service of Our Veterans. Our vision is to a source of curiosity and courage for kids of all ages to gain the confidence to take flight.


The airplane and helicopter exhibits and the artifact, research library and archive collections form the core of the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, yet there is a sense in which they are really only secondary, supportive tools to our mission. The aircraft, stories and artifacts are up-close and personal examples of human achievements that have brought us to this current place in history. We strive to create an environment that not only teaches children, youth, and adults about the great milestones in the story of aviation, but also demonstrates the importance of other human skills like mathematics, teamwork, determination, perseverance, science and technology.

Dreams of flight have captured the imaginations of children and adults alike for centuries. Captain Michael King Smith had a fascination with flight that began in childhood and continued throughout his short life. Captain Smith's fierce dedication and passion for flying led to his dream of an aviation museum unlike any other - a living museum that celebrates aviation's rich history, honors the patriotic service of our veterans and offers enlightening educational programs in aviation.
