The National WASP WWII Museum
The National WASP WWII Museum seeks to educate and inspire all generations with the story of the WASP: Women Airforce Service Pilots – the first women to fly American military aircraft – women who forever changed the role of women in aviation!
The museum is conveniently located just minutes off Interstate 20 at 210 Loop 170 in Sweetwater, Texas. Pilots flying over Sweetwater can land at Avenger Field – the Sweetwater Airport (SWW). The museum is a short distance away. For assistance with directions or in setting up special tours, call 325.235.0099.
Regular days and hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Tours can be booked by calling (325) 235-0099 Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Then at 7:00 pm the Memorial Service, Flyover and Dinner/Dance is held at the National WASP WWII Museum inside Hangar One. The National WASP WWII Museum will welcome a number of WASP.

A climate-controlled addition is needed at the National WASP WWII Museum to preserve the many precious artifacts and display them properly. Great progress has been made in the last five years bringing Hangar One alive with the WASP story, but there is still much to be done. The legacy these courageous women left us must be shared with all generations. We have a great story to tell and we need to keep moving forward, improving upon what has been accomplished, and we need your support! Call WASP Museum at 325-235-0099 or email email@example.com to learn how you can help.
