Grand Spaces for Historic Events

Looking for a remarkable venue to host your next event? The Military Aviation Museum and its hangars, museum galleries and outdoor spaces are perfect for weddings, family reunions, military ceremonies, corporate events and holiday parties. With one of the largest collections of World War I and World War II military aircraft, the Museum provides a unique backdrop for any major event. 

With vastly different spaces from climate controlled indoor spaces for all-season options, to rustic, historic buildings and even outdoor areas hemmed by trees and water features, the Museum has something for every price point, and every event size.

Spread Out

The main museum features two 15,000 square-foot hangars, each capable of hosting up to 600 people in a single space. Or take a step further back in time in our beautiful 12,000 square-foot WWI hangar. The Museum grounds have hosted events of up to 5,000 with associated tents and staging.

The main museum building also features a prep kitchen, along with 400 chairs and over 70 tables that are available to events at no charge on a first-come first-served basis. The Museum also has dramatic up-lighting and stage equipment available for an additional fee.

Host a Private Air Show

One of the Museum’s most interesting offerings is the opportunity to add aircraft demonstrations to your event rental!

All demonstrations are weather and maintenance permitting, and aircraft may be substituted due to availability.
