From all the volunteers at the Wurtsmith Air Museum…..


2440 visitors walked though our door this year and we enjoyed meeting everyone, learning about their travels and how they found their way to the museum. 

We especially enjoyed reminiscing with our returning WAFB
veterans and their families.

You made 2018 a year to remember.

As we reflect on our successful season, we are starting to
plan for next year.
In the coming months, we will be making changes and updating displays, adding new items to the gift shop and launching a redesigned web site. Also look for an online shop coming soon.

Please visit and LIKE our Facebook page and check this 
website for our 2019 scheduled events and updates.
We hope to see you back at the museum soon.
