Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum
Museums have a reputation for housing dusty, fragile artifacts that normally shouldn't be touched. But the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is a different breed. Its passionate staff and crew of volunteers have collected and restored hundreds of historical cars, planes, and other vehicles, all of which they regularly start up and drive.
- Size: not surprisingly, the museum is located in an indoor hangar that stretches for more than 2.5 acres and can take more than a day to fully explore
- Eye Catcher: larger antique tractors, trucks, and military Jeeps loom over a fleet of their smaller siblings
- Permanent Mainstay: the Curtiss JN-4D "Jenny" from 1917 was lovingly restored by the museum's experts, who even applied the plane's finish the traditional way: with horsehair brushes. These planes were standard training aircraft for pilots in WWI.
- Don't Miss: seven different Ford Model T's from model years 1914–1927
- Hidden Gems: the museum has almost 30 vintage motorcycles hiding beneath airplane wings and between cars. Guests are encouraged to try and spot all the hogs, including several Harley-Davidsons and one extra-elusive one named Waldo
- Special Programs: every "Second Saturday" of the month is a volunteer action day, when expert volunteers fire up the display vehicles for driving and flying demos
