The Museum of Flight is a private 501 (c)(3) Washington non-profit corporation that is nationally accredited with the American Association of Museums and a Smithsonian Affiliate, and the largest private air and space museum in the world.
The Museum of Flight exists to acquire, preserve and exhibit historically significant air and space artifacts, which provide a foundation for scholarly research, and lifelong learning programs that inspire an interest in and understanding of science, technology and the humanities. The vision of the Museum is to be the foremost educational air and space museum in the world. The Museum welcomes approximately 500,000 visitors from around the world each year. Visitors to the Museum experience an extensive collection of air and space artifacts presented in four galleries, and special exhibitions that capture the history and personal stories surrounding the artifacts. In addition to the exhibits, visitors participate in engaging educational programming including lectures and hands-on activities and experience flight through a variety of air and space motion simulators. The Museum’s outdoor Airpark offers visitors the chance to tour the supersonic Concorde transport and our nation’s first Presidential jet Air Force One, and seasonally the Museum hosts airplane fly-ins featuring historic and other aircraft from around the country.
