It’s Looking Good!

Construction to Hangars 1 and 2, which began in October 2020, is almost complete. Hangar 1 (or the “New Hangar” as some of you call it) will be completed by February 15. The Archive Team will begin moving into their new offices and relocating artifacts to the Museum’s climate-controlled, tornado-resistant vault. Exhibits go into this hangar beginning March 1. Returning visitors will be treated to old favorites mixed in with many new displays of information, pictures, and artifacts, all in a climate-controlled space.

Hangar 2 (our original Museum hangar) is still undergoing transformation. New aircraft doors have been added to the east side, concrete floors have been poured, and remodeled offices and restrooms are being constructed. Upon completion, Museum staff will move into their new offices and, for the first time in the Museum’s 16-year history, the whole team will work on one campus.

An opening date for regular visiting hours has not been set, but check out our event section for information on our next WASP in the Spotlight and Homecoming 2021.

  • About Us

  • The National WASP WWII Museum is dedicated to honoring the life and legacy of the Women Airforce Service Pilots and preserving the legacy of Avenger Field on which most of them trained. Our mission is to educate and inspire all current and future generations with the story of the WASP – the first women to fly America’s military aircraft – women who brought honor to our nation and forever changed the role of women in military and civilian aviation.


The WASP Museum is an exciting place to visit. Guests hear stories of triumph, tragedy, and lessons learned while touching and seeing unique artifacts and aircraft. The Museum is so much more, though. It’s a school that goes on tour at airshows and in school districts. It serves as a gathering place for local and regional events. It’s a solemn memorial ground for the ashes of 13 WASP and hosts our yearly Homecoming Weekend honoring our pilots and their families. The Museum is both a place and a mission. To bring our best to every endeavor, the Museum relies on friends to supplement the work of our staff. Please consider ways you can be part of the mission today.


The National WASP WWII Museum Archive mission is to collect, protect, preserve and provide access to materials that chronicle the WASP story, it’s legacy, and the personal and professional lives of its pilots.
