Learn about the history and on-going mission of this unique museum. Hear about some unusual exhibits as well as some amazing out-reach programs. This wonderful museum is not limited to female pilots; it also features exhibits and information on female air traffic controllers, mechanics and flight attendants. Additionally, it houses exhibits on female astronauts...from the acclaimed recent astronauts to the lesser known Mercury-13 who were tested and trained long ago but never permitted to participate in missions. Special events and out-reach programs are also in a class of their own...a mother-daughter Aviation Summer Camp is just one example.
IWASM is dedicated to preserving the history of women in aviation from the earliest accomplishments to the modern-day achievements. Consider supporting this FREE museum by becoming a member, donating memorabilia or making a cash donation.
