The Museum

We are open on Saturdays from 10 am – 5 pm, and Sundays from 1 pm – 5 pm!

The Hickory Aviation Museum is a non-profit organization staffed by dedicated volunteers with a common obsession: the love of aviation! Admission is free and on the weekends it makes a wonderful outing for the whole family. Youngsters of all ages can sit in the pilot’s seat and dream!

We as a group are dedicated to maintaining the facts and truths of the Golden Age of Aviation. Aviation artifacts and memorabilia from great airplanes and noteworthy aviation figures are on display. The Museum is also a gathering place
for veterans of all wars and services to meet, tell stories, enjoy camaraderie or just hang out. This creates a priceless opportunity for the younger generation to learn and appreciate what their forebears contributed to the
aviation history of this great nation of ours. The Museum is always growing. We add new exhibits and aircraft on a
regular basis. We invite you to become a member and grow with us. You don’t need a background in aviation, just an interest and the will to learn. Bring the youngsters along! Who knows, they could be future aviators.

The membership fee for the whole family is nominal. Membership applications are available at the Museum.
