Overview

The mission of the International Women's Air & Space Museum is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future. We have artifacts for over 6,000 women in the aviation and aerospace fields. We are the only museum of our kind in the entire world because we represent women in all fields of aviation and aerospace, including but not limited to; pilots, mechanics, mission controllers, and astronauts. We provide educational experiences to school children and scout groups with private tours and hands on learning. We also provide private tours and boxed lunch programs for adults. We aren't just a quiet museum in the airport, as we host numerous events and fundraisers throughout the year including; Dinner with a Slice of History, Family Day, Rocket Day and Corks in the Concourse. Visit our website or give us a call for more information regarding the exhibits, tours, events, or general information. Exhibits: Open 7 days a week, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Office/Gift Shop: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
