Planes of Fame Air Museum
Planes of Fame Air Museum was simply dubbed “The Air Museum” when it was founded in 1957—as the only museum of its kind west of the Mississippi, it had no need for a more specific moniker. More than 50 years later, it now boasts a stock of more than 150 airplanes and displays, including many aircraft that are the only flying examples of their type in the world including the N9MB Flying Wing and the P 26 Pea Shooter. Patrons can also explore an array of exhibits and aircraft that trace aviation’s history from the Chanute Hang Glider in 1896 to sophisticated modern-day planes.

“I really enjoyed it. There is a lot to see. I took my 3 y/o who is a airplane fanatic, and he loved it. If you hope to be able to get in the planes, this is not the place to go. They are for show only. Most of the planes still fly though!”
“Great place to check out historic planes”
